hi ishaan,

if you have valid warranty, call support line to ship your laptop back to service. if you don't have valid warranty and/or want to fix it by yourself, there are couple of threads that may help you to recover the bios. please, search the forum.

sorry to say that but at this point i won't be able to help you. still you can contact lenovo support line for mainboard replacement but buying a new system is better idea.

i'm not sure if you could replace the bios chip but replacing the battery wouldn't help. have you tried hard reset instead?

-remove the battery and un-plug the ac power, press power button for 30-40 seconds, replace the battery and check if it works.
