I found these instructions online - don't guarantee they will work -- but first, you have to use a working PC to download a Win10 installation setup and create an installation DVD or USB stick -- which you can do using this link: Windows 10 download

 

1.bootbup with windows 10 USB drive then go repair and get to command prompt. 

2. Go to you main windows boot drive depending on how many drives you have,

3. Go to windows/system32

4. Type following copy osk.exe osk.exe.bak

5. Type following copy cmd.exe osk.exe

What you do is replace on screen keyboard with command prompt, 

6.reboot

7.once windows is log to normal login screen but since you can't see user name or login but you will see bottom right x on network icon and accessible 

8.clikc on On screen keyboard, it will bring up commands prompt instead 

9. Type in msconfig it will bring up System Configuration GUI, now lock on Normal startup then reboot.
