No integrated or video card display on boot up of lenovo

Hi there,
I have a computer which is out of warranty - have tried rebuilding it from an image I took but had to cancel half way through - I figured I'd just start it again another day, but now when I boot up there is no display output.

It has integrated video, but I also tried connecting a PCIx video card and different monitor but still no joy.
It doesn't even display the usual bios / power up options or wakethe connected screen from standby.

I've tried removing the jumper to reset the CMOS which caused some ongoing beeps on boot but still no display - have reconnected jumper again.

Any other suggestions to resolve this or why this might have happened?

PS: The dvd drive is also making a funny noise when connected and eject button doesn't work. Have also tried booting without this connected but still not display
