Just today i read a post stating that java has a bad virus. Know that i ran a malwarebites scan and it found 1 harmful item and i deleted the item. After restarting my computer from a prompt, my lenova v570 laptop now turns on with a black screen and a movable cursor right after the windows "welcome screen".

ctrl + alt + delete does not work

I have tried in safe mode and it turns on properly. So, i tried to do what others sujjested on other forums, which was to " roll back my graphics driver" after that, nothing has change.

Please help, i have all my school notes saved on this laptop, and a lot of information is on it.

When you start the laptop, keep pressing the F8 key. A menu should pop up.
Select last known good boot config. If it does not work then.
Select start in safe mode. You should get a screen then, and no lock up.
You can do one or two things here.
Uninstall the graphics card driver, then re install it.
Or do a system restore, from the day before ect it went wrong.

Well if your concerned about your save work (which I would be) and you able to boot into safe mode via F8 use the safemode with networking. Then email or copy your files that you need to USB drive just to be safe. After if you still can't get it going and you have rebuild/install then you won't have to worry about losing your files.
