That error message is telling you one of two things. Either you left a floppy in drive A that isn't bootable, so remove it and the computer will probably boot. If it's not that, it's telling you that it can't find the hard drive and requires a bootable disk to go any further.

Also, if the computer was left off for a week, the battery may be dead. Charge it for a while and see if it boots right, or at least tells you to go to setup (F1 or F2) because it lost the settings in the BIOS.
