Long story short. My laptop is capable of running a resolution at 1280 x 800 but currently I am running at 1280 x 720 because when I turn on my laptop the resolution doesn't fill up the screen which ends up leaving a black vertical bar on the right side of the screen. (When I am in 1280x720 I have two black bars one running horizontaly on the top, and one vertically on the right side)
I am forced to use 1280 x 720 even though it's still broken because in 1280 x 800 the taskbar is hidden and a lot of my icons are hidden.
Now, the fix that I have for this was when I was booting up the laptop I would open and close the lid before the "start windows normaly" message would pop up, and it would usually have it filled up the whole way but now this fix doesn't work.
Anyone else have this problem?

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
Have you tried uninstalling the video drivers, rebooting the computer and then installing a fresh copy of the drivers ?
The link below is for the available drivers from Lenovo for your model. Just select your operating system in the top box for the correct driver listing.......

From reviewing the specifications of your laptop the recommended resolution is 1366 x 768. How does that setting look on your laptop ?

One other suggestion, have you tried the video drivers direct from Intel's website ? They are newer than what Lenovo has available. Here is the download link.......

The documentation I can find your model is saying your model has a recommended resolution of 1366 x 768, but you are not seeing it. Makes me wonder if there is a conflict between the display and video driver. Try this to clear the stored hardware configuration that the BIOS uses......
1. Unplug the charger / adapter.
2. Press and hold the Power Button for 25 seconds.
3. Plug in the charger / adapter if needed and power up the system to see if the problem was resolved.

Since it is Intel grahic built in so I downloaded Intel Graphics Driver Update (Ivy Bridge CPU with HD4000) then I was able to made some adjustments as:
(Right click for) Graphic Properties - Intel HD Graphics Control Panel - Display - and change Resolution to 1366 x 768 (not 1280 x 800) and Refresh Rate = 60 p Hz (not 58 p Hz) and Scaling = Scale Full Screen.
