Go to Power Management options, change what to do for Power Buttons, then near the top, Change settings that are unavailable and then Uncheck Fast Startup.

Save (OK out) and restart.  Press the key for BIOS (F! or Enter on my Lenovo machines). Watch the screen messages.

Start, wait, and restart. That may slow you down enough to enter BIOS.

On restart, press F1 repeatedly

You may need to contact Lenovo and get recovery media.

The two steps I outlined (first one needs Windows, second one does not need Windows) both work on my Lenovo Windows 10 machine.

There may be something else wrong with the laptop. Call Lenovo Support.

Wait, wait, wait ...

Is anything appearing on the screen when you try to boot up?  Anything at all?   Or do you just get a black screen with nothing?

Try either F1 or F2 as the computer is booting. If that doesn't work try Fn + F1 or Fn + F2

No. not unless you did something that would cause this.

At this point, call Lenovo Support.
