can I replce my damged cpu p4 2.8 with p4 3.0

According tot he IBM/Lenovo Specifications of this model your answer is most Defiantly YES.

The M'Board supports 478 Package ???Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz to 3.2GHz

So it should just be a matter of changing the CPU and replacing the Heat Sink Paste then when you Boot Up enter the BIOS and set or check the listing for the CPU. When this is correct save the changes as you exit the BIOS and it should work

Full Specifications for this model is available here

Just remember to remove the space from between lenovo and the .com to get a working URL.

It's not the CPU, you bricked the bios attempting an update. Your options are call lenovo and file an RMA (which is unlikely to happen since it's 8 years old) or buy a new computer. *IF* they will replace your bios module or swap the motherboard, you might have a chance at reviving it.

You're long overdue for a replacement.

Many bios have an unflashable portion for just this predictament.
I remember restoring a P4 that was flashed with a blank bios before. I don't remember the exact procedure. But I suggest looking into the bios update utilities for your motherboard.
