For the Lenovo to to start in the safe and networking mode, and then not have a display when you attempt to boot it in normal mode, I would follo the these steps:
Boot in networking mode, and then go to the Lenovo site and download the most current display drivers. Since you are able to operate as described above, I would start here first. Once you have successfully downloaded the most current drivers for the video on your system, BEFORE you leave the Lenovo site, check your system against the listed bios upgrades. I believe you may find you need to upgrade your system firmware. If so....download the upgrades you need, and finish the display drivers updates as discussed above, and keep the fresh firmware updates set aside and see if the display driver updates allow you to boot normally.
If so, once you have a normal boot, backup your systems RIGHT away! The next step is to then carefully read the docs about how to update the firmware. Sometimes this will require a floppy drive, if so, you can most likely either pick up a USB one very cheaply or perhaps borrow one. At any rate, make sure your system is backed up fully, and preferable with a restore point, (if you are able with XP?)
Try these measures, if it is successful I would love to hear that from you by way of a testimonial. If you are not - please return here for further assistance. I have additional help for you - but I do not think at this time you have a hardware problem.
Have a great day!!

The same model Lenovo can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your Lenovo, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows device drivers for your model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true
