Black screen after upgrade from Windows 7 to Windows 10

I have installed windows 10 on a Dell Optiplex 7010. All went well until I got to the Login Screen, which appeared (the client does not have a password) and then went blank. After a while I could see the Windows 10 logo on bottom left of screen and I could access Ctrl+Alt+Delete but nothing more.

Is this a problem with the Graphics Card? Or is it something more  sinister?
