How to find the card model? lspci?

lspci -nn

This will include the 8-digit hexadecimal PCI ID number, which is the
best indicator of what's actually inside the machine.

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0046] (rev 02)

Two different models of T410 were produced, one with Intel CPU graphics and other with Nvidia graphics.
They have same CPU model, so there is still a possibility you have one with Nvidia adapter.
Check if Nvidia graphics wasn't disabled in BIOS by accident.

To use Nvidia graphics you will have to install legacy Nvidia driver packages ("nvidia-legacy-340xx-driver").
Version 340 is the last version supported for Nvidia NVS 3100M graphics adapter.

One can also try to fiddle with kernel parameters for i915 module (to disable power-saving features, for an example), but that could be too much for an inexperienced user.
It is hard to suggest anything more than that, because your laptop was discontinued many years ago and you can't even find manual\downloads for it anymore on official Lenovo website.

With kindest regards, Alexander.
