The motherboard of the pc has a corrupted BIOS chip - this isn't fixable, you would need to replace the motherboard who died of old age.
Since this is an extremely old pc there are no replacement or compatible boards left on sale. Sorry, time for a new pc.

And follow the instructions here to upgrade the BIOS. I suggest using their instructions as they will be far more accurate than mine for this specific system and BIOS update.

The 1801 error is defined as:
Missing or invalid Processor Microcode Patch.

Resolved by:
Applying a new ROM BIOS to support the processor stepping.

In other words, you need a BIOS upgrade. Contact your BIOS vendor and get support for your new processor.
