if XP is starting up OK motherboard ROM must be working. Do you mean CDROM ?

doesnt mention CDROM just ROM It has never shown this before so I dont know what it realy means as the computer runs as normal and I just wondered what might have caused it as I know ROM means Read Only Memory

Only explanation I can offer is that XP is trying to start an application that looks for data on a CD/DVD,
puts up the not available message, aborts application and then carries on. Do you have any applications that no longer work ?

Make and model of PC?

Rom disabled sometimes refers to Sccsi drives or Auxillary ROM
