Hi Joe, what we need here is not just the name Lenovo the maker, but the model name of the tower system if it is one, if were talking about a laptop though not much can be done if you wish to upgrade it.

If it is a tower system then by giving us the tower number eg: lenovo 234L we can work out your options to make it better. Sadly yours is a laptop, so it means it has fixed hardware, for example the Gpu is solderd to the board, and no expansion slot exists to put a better or higher model of graphics card into it to increase the frame rate of games ect. Sorry to say it`s one of the things you find with bog standard laptops. the only ones that can be upgraded are top of the line gaming laptop that reach into the £1000 plus mark.
