Sound like the videocard is bad or possibly a bad ram stick.Check it with an external monitor.If it shows video on it ,the card is ok.If not the videocard is bad.If it shows video, the ram may be bad or the connection to the motherboard is incomplete or the plug is bad.Also unplug the HDD then try to start it up.If the bios is readable the HDD is causing a conflict.
I don't believe that there is a P4 motherboard that needs jumper setting to specify the CPU voltage. This used to be common for Pentium & Pentium II motherboards, & some Pentium III motherboards. But I have never seen a Pentium 4 motherboard that require this kind of setting. Besides, I checked the motherboard's manual & I saw that there is a sub-menu in BIOS labelled "Frequency/Voltage Control". This should be the place where the CPU voltage should be set, & on most motherboards, CPU voltage & frequency are automatically detected.
The Chinese own all rights (Linovo). You will have to contact them . I'm 25 + years in support and the chip level people I work with simply replace the video chip or the audio chip or what ever the general area of failure is, since one chip represents the major pieces of the machine-- I haven't seen chip level troubleshooting info available to technicians for years
Did you get the firmware from the site below?
Link to hardware maintenance manual for reference: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/mobiles_pdf/39t2393.pdf
Here's the fix straight from the maintenance manual:
If in the primary bay the customer is using a non-IBM or non-Lenovo hard disk drive (HDD), or an old generation IBM HDD which is not supported by this system, with the risk in mind, the customer can still use it by pressing ESC. If in the primary drive bay the customer is using a supported IBM/Lenovo HDD with an old firmware, the customer needs to update its firmware to the latest.
