What else is on the screen when it comes up with the first message? Has it gone through its POST (power on self test) routine, where it checks the hardware, memory and so on? Or is it as soon as you physically turn on the machine?

When the message displays, is that message literally everything that is displayed on the screen? Once you press a key, is there any else displayed apart from the "system disabled" message? I did a quick google and I can't find many other instances of this problem.

It could possibly be a BIOS password but it is unusual to experience such a message unless, perhaps, you repeatedly get the password wrong. Can you think of anything that you might've done to cause this message to be displayed?

it tries to start up as normal but then goes onto the 'press any key' screen, but it started off after my g.f used the laptop and it over heated and cut out i switched the laptop on later and this started to happen
