Actually I figured it out. I had to go to device manager and click to update the drivers for NVIDIA display adapter.

Sorry. I am getting there I think. LOL

Maybe this will help someone who ends up with the same issue. My screen was totally black and nothing I would do would make my desktop wallpaper show up. I ended updating the display adapter and it seems to be working fine.
