First check with a flashlight the screen has an image
you should see some letters or something like that
if you see something check these signals
LID_SW #, INVT_PWM, DISPOFF # should have 3v

Check if you have CPU VCore, if it's there, try flash the BIOS.

Check for lvdsvdden. It should be 3.3v. If it is not present, reflow the graphic card or reball

.
All the things that you just described points to the faulty graphic card (And yes, it includes the integrated one). The last asserted signal before POST which enables the LCD is LCDVDDEN. That's why It's a good idea to check it and act accordingly.

Friend your problem is a defect bios chip... I replaced the bios chip with a 3.3v chip from another vendor with double capacity (16mb) and my laptop posted... Ofcourse with warning message : " Bios vendor is not in the Lenovo's vendor list" but after 5 secs laptop continues fine... Find another same or similar Bios chip and flash it . I also sharing w you the bios dump .. My model is NM-A272 With i3 and w/o extra VGA.
