Hi Andrew.

1. Make sure the monitor is plugged into the integrated graphic adapter port. Make sure monitor is plugged in. Make sure monitor is set for correct input (VGA, DVI, HDMI, etc).
2. Reset the BIOS to default values in case you forced the BIOS to only send video to the PCI card. There is a procedure for that in the lenovo manual you can download for your PC.

Let us know if this doesn't work. The next steps are to start pulling parts, and that's a pain. rule out the simple stuff first. then read this: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/261145-31-perform-ste... It's for new builds so you can ignore some stuff, but gives you an idea what's next.
