unplug it, take the battery out, press start button to be sure all residual power is gone
then put the battery back and plug it in and see if it will POST and load windows

Thanks for your reply. Still not working.
Called Lenovo support - they siggested to reset through the small pin hole on the back of the laptop top left corner. Did that, still the same issue. They said its motherboard issue. go for replacement/refund.
Cant believe it - brand new High-end ThinkPad and mother board issue within 24 hrs !
Anyway, raised a replacement request.

Definitely a pain in the butt to have to seen a machine back, which is unusual.
I wonder if the machine was damaged in transit, rare but it happends
