Sorry to hear about your troubles.
Any 2.5" SSD will work in your ThinkPad but let's verify that's where the problem is first.
Press F12 on boot. Do you still see the SSD on the list of bootable devices? If you do, it's quite possible that you just need a fresh install of whatever OS - presumably W7 - was shipped with the machine.

As you've mentioned that you cannot enter the BIOS setup menu, this *might* be a motherboard problem.
ie: There *MAY* be a chance that your SSD is still working, with data on it (hopefully).
If you have the handyman skills in you, perhaps you can take out your SSD, connect it to another computer to find out if you still have your SSD data on it.
1. Take out your SSD from your notebook computer.
~First, disconnect the power plug.
~Take out all removable battery (if any).
~Use screwdriver to open SSD compartment, remove your SSD. (Careful not to touch the copper contacts).
2. Connect your SSD into an external SSD enclosure.
~Connect this above unit into another computer via USB.
******IF your SSD is still working, you should be able to see/manipulate your data!
(If this is true, this may be a motherboard problem in your ThinkPad).
