It may be the drive timing out.  Pull the HDD and see if you can boot into the BIOS

Re: LENOVO w540 stuck on "lenovo" loading screen

I have the W540 and having the same issue since yesterday. It has been running fine since past many many years and then just today it got syuck into the logo screen. I have tried multiple times F12 ...but it doesn't go to teh boot sequence option. Any help would help here. This is my prime machine. I don't trust any other manufacturers for this.

And we're back...
