Some older computers had a keyboard lock on the front that is locked/unlocked using a key. If it is locked then this is the error that you get, although pressing F1 should not work....

Has this error just started, or has it always done this? It's possible this is an incorrect jumper setting on your motherboard, or you may need to reset the BIOS.
