As I understand it, you tried to upgrade the CPU from 1.86GHz to a 3.00GHz. The error message is stating that the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) cannot recognise the CPU because it is not in the list of supported CPUs. You need to download an updated BIOS (if available) for the particular motherboard in your PC. You will need to get the model number of the motherboard which is usually written on the motherboard. Then go to this web site: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/homeLenovo.do
Search for an updated bios for your motherboard. There should be instructions on how to update the bios.
After a month you have probably found a solution. The Power On Self Test is looking for a Basic In Out System update. There is likely hardware on the machine that the system cannot recognize. The bios firmware update can usually be found at the chipset manufacturer's website or at a computer store that sells the NetVista machines. It comes on a CD that installs as a boot disk. Hope this info is still relevant.
Could be that the bios itself is corrupted, You could try reloading that latest bios. Update the BIOS using flash from OS. link: http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/thinkcentre_bios/24jy55usa.exe
IBM Netvista PC is not ready for Windows XP, you should update its BIOS on its version so that you can install windows XP, maybe ACPI is not ready yet for this motherboard compliance to Windows XP, so download it at www.ibm.com
bios for ibm is at ibm.com and you should never update bios if you dont know much of computers but always use software to flash bios from windows... ibm.com will be good to download bios, the other part is up to you, because if you are clueless on this matter you better take your computer to an it technician before braking it down.
I had a similar problem with my PC which had older version 1 USB. I purchased a USB 2 PCI card with USB Hub, installed and problem solved. It really not a very expensive proposition. The card comes with the necessary software and drivers. It works great.
if you still can enter bios setup look for the advanced menu in the BIOS for "processor updating" or something like this and set to "disabled". Save the changes.
otherwise your motherboard perhaps is incompartible with cpu
for example cpu 133 and motherboard 100 or 66MHZ
please let me know the result.
