In the Lenovo T520 the video card is part of the Mainboard and cannot be removed sperately. If there is a defect you need to change the entire mainboard. If performance is not sufficient you need to change to a more powerful laptop.

Sometimes you can repair a board by reflowing it. This will not always work, and needs to be done by someone with reflow equipment.

Sorry but you didn't

What you bought was a motherboard with an 'optional Nvidia 4200M graphics card'

It's called a 'card' more as a marketing tool, the chipset sits on a daughterboard but is soldered onto the mainboard - it's not designed to be removed.

It's the square PCB outlined in red in this picture.  The top picture is the standard board and the bottom one is the one you have.
