My laptop had an issue with bios chip failure so I had to change my bios chip. So I gave to lenovo service center and they changed the bios chip and gave me back. Now what happens is whenever I boot up my laptop it takes 20-22+ seconds to show me the lenovo bios logo and boots up the OS. And OS runs slower than before. I tried reinstalling the OS but the same issue occurs.

I would suggest contacting Lenovo Support, explain the situation to them and get this resolved ASAP as it does sound like a the "new" hardware installed has an issue. Usually replacing a BIOS chip means a system board change out, and sometimes that can be very difficult to get right. There are quite a few internal connections between system board and daughter boards, devices and such so the chances of system failures upon reassembly are quite large.
Don't settle for multiple RMA efforts, if this is not resolved, speak with a "case manager" on the next go round.
