My A7N8x-x motherboard lay idle for a few years, so I inserted a new battery and made a computer. But the result is that my MB will not go after a : Bios check sum error. Detecting floppy drive in media....

Is there a possibility to make the next step?

Sounds like you need to make a floppy for bios recovery. Is this a retail board or one that came from a Compaq/HP machine?
