I,m pretty sure that the region settings on PS3s are factory set.
Your only option is to buy japanese games, or NTSJ.
I,d try to re-sell it back to someone in Singapore or Japan, and buy a UK Version.

I assume you bought a PS2 game that works on your PS2 system but not on your PS3 system since a PS3 game will never work on a PS2.
Since not all PS3 systems can play PS2 games, you need to first check the model number of your PS3 system. If you look at the back of your PS3, there should be a serial number somewhere that starts with "CECH", followed by one more letter and a couple numbers (e.g. "CECHC02"). Unless the model number starts with "CECHA", "CECHB", "CECHC", or "CECHE", you won't be able to play PS2 games on your PS3.
If your PS3 can play PS2 games, then you need to make sure that the region of the PS2 game matches the region of your PS3. The region of the PS2 game can be found in the upper-right corner of the front of the box the game came in. The four regions are: "NTSC U/C", "NTSC J", "NTSC C", and "PAL".
Once you know the model number of the PS3 and the region of the PS2 game, you can tell if the PS2 game should work on the PS3. Use the following chart to determine if your game and system are compatible:
Last two digits of your PS3 model number: Playable PS2 game region 00: NTSC J 01: NTSC U/C 02: PAL 03: PAL 04: PAL 05: NTSC J 06: NTSC J 07: NTSC J 08: PAL 09: NTSC C 11: NTSC U/C 12: NTSC J
it sounds like a version conflict to me ie a NTSC copy of the game with a pal PS3 or visa versa. an excerpt from wikipedia "Two of the seventh generation of video game consoles have regional lockout, so games imported from other countries cannot be played on foreign versions of those consoles without some form of alteration to bypass the lockout. However, a number of games for the Xbox 360 have been confirmed as region free and will play on a unit from any region, although it is up to the publisher if a game is region free or not. Like the CD-i and the Panasonic 3DO, the PlayStation 3 is one of the few home consoles to be advertised as region-free. However, while region free for PS3 games, there is region locking for backwards compatible PS2 and PS1 games, as well as DVD and Blu-ray Disc movies. Additionally, some games separate online players per region, such as Metal Gear Solid 4 Online. A PSN store only contains content for its own country, for example the UK store will not supply usable map packs for an imported US copy of Call of Duty 4. The PS3 actually supports hardware region locking for PS3 games as well, based on Blu-ray regions, but as of current it is unused and all current region lockouts and separations are about online services." Link "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regional_lockout" Perhaps checking the video setting and game settings under "settings" in the home menu might help.
did the equipment you got with it allow for use of the sockets in singapore if yes then it is you have to use the backup program that is built into the drive and use backup games which are able to pe bought in your home area
Although the PS3 itself is not region locked, PS2 games are and unfortunately the region lock will still be enforced. No idea what 'lennox' may be (Linux?), but there's no way you can play that game on your PS3 I'm afraid.
