Can you boot your computer into Safe Mode and uninstall graphic card driver.

All i can do is shut down, restart and sleep; ease of access which doesnt do anything; i have a "sun" and an exclamation point and the font gets a little smaller. Thats it.

On the Windows sign-in screen, press and hold the Shift key while you select the Power > Restart .

After your PC restarts to the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings > Restart.

After your PC restarts, you'll see a list of options. Select 4 or F4 to start your PC in safe mode.

Thanks freebooter, but the furthest i can get is to the choose option screen. As soon as i click on the arrow, my pc cycles thru and takes me back to the sign-in screen.

If you have a Windows 10 setup DVD you can use it to boot your broken PC with Windows 10 setup DVD into Safe Mode.

You asked if i had a win10 dvd and i was responding to that.
Also, not sure if you went back to the beginning of this string when i explained the original problem. I think im going to have to take ut to a pc store to see if they can"crack thru" the lock on my pc.

If all you want are the files and pictures there are ways to do that. You can pull the hard drive and put it in a USB enclosure when your new one comes or you can boot to a Linux CD or USB. Doing that will allow you to copy the files to a backup device.
