You would need to make a bootable floppy with an autoexec.bat file which is edited to install the BIOS upgrade when it boots up. That way you don't need the keyboard to run the installation. It's about your only hope here.

A checksum error means your BIOS is corrupted, and you have to get the BIOS flash files from the motherboard or computer maker's website, and read and follow all instructions carefully, but in your case they need to be modified to fit your situation. For instance the last machine I flashed the BIOS in, the floppy had an I/O error and I had to use the hardrive to do the install. It worked and corrected the floppy problem too. If the checksum error is in the CMOS it means your CMOS memory is bad, or the battery is bad.
