Cannot edit asp.net .cs files. Is my code locked?

Hello Experts
I have a website written in asp.net c# that someone gave me to fix a few bugs in. I am using visual studio 2008 as that is what the site was made in. I am having a few issues though. If I try to make a change to html side of the web page the change is reflected when I debug the site, however if I make any changes to the behind the scene code (the .cs files) the change does not get executed. Also I have placed break points in the code to try and debug the issue, but the code does not stop on the break points. If I look at the break point when in debug mode, it is a hollow circle with hover text “Break point will not currently be hit, source data is different from original version”
I do not understand this issue as I have not made any changes to the source code after I started to debug, so why is the source data different.
What is going on? Is the project somehow locked? Why can’t I change or debug the c# code behind the page?
Thank you for you help
