Just few days ago I installed Windows 10 and whenever I turn it off and start the computer, the black screen with blinking cursor appears immediately after the logo screen. When i use one of the options to restore from a disk I can see the drives and it looks like all my files that previously before the update was in C are now in the E: drive. This will take some time. It is better suited in the TechNet forums. I can hit Control, Alt, Delete, and it reboots momentarily, show the Dell logo and F2 Setup anf F12 Boot Options in the lower right corner.

Once you get familiar with the board itself as far as how things are set up and know your way around in the bios set up this will become second nature in no time.
So essentially what you would be doing is cloning your drive onto a usb external hard drive and then once you have reformatted your laptop you can get access to the cloned files.
