Locked Out Dell Inspiron 1525 - Lock 9

My Dell Inspiron 1525 (Vista) will not startup.
A lock symbol with the number 9 is lit up next to the power button.

A person I know was attempting to hack into my Dell Inspiron 1525 past night. I'm assuming the system locked itself to prevent it from being hacked.

Does anybody know haw I can get back in?

Laptop screen turns off every time I view the color black.

Hi,
I have a Toshiba Satellite L675-S7050 running Win 8 64-bit.
When ever I see anything that covers my screen in the color black, the screen turns off. Then I have to close the lid, and the screen resumes.

What could be the trouble. Some answers are thankful. Thank-you for your \'s advise.

Transfer mp3 files to Ipod without using Itunes.

Is there other alternate to transferring/syncing my mp3 files into my Ipod.
What I do right now is drag/drop files from Limeware applications into Itunes.

I noted Winamp Lite media run is an alternate to move & sync files into Ipod. Will this work?<
