Hello, i have lenovo with pentium 2020m.

Open cover door (on DIMMs) under your laptop, remove all DIMMs, make and post a good foto of stickers on slots for memory.
BTW: Lenovo G400/G500/G405/G505/G410/G510 Hardware Maintenance Manual

I think your laptop has the motherboard with FRU=90002805. So it has support of i5-3230M (FRU=102500486) without any BIOS modification.
Try this algorithm with native BIOS:
1) remove AC jack, Main Battery, and CMOS Battery
2) remove HDD and all DIMMs
3) install new CPU
4) wait 10 mins
5) press and hold power button for 30 sec.
6) install CMOS Battery and one DIMM only, inject AC jack (without Main Battery!)
7) try to boot your laptop.

Check your new CPU in other system. Probably it's dead.
