I found that in order to see the download I had to connect my laptop to my TV via HDMI cable so I was able to see that it did in fact upgrade to Windows 10.
Windows 10 is just not reconizing my laptops screen as a usable monitor. All advice is greatly appreciated Did you try to boot into safe mode? Try installing the one from Dell's homepage instead.
I have already reinstalled windows 10 and have made sure all my drivers are up to date.

In my case I have finally figured out how to get out of the black screen.
A lot of videos and posts have mentioned that the graphics card was to blame.
The problem with my situation is that I only have one graphics card whereas others have had two; an integrated and dedicated.
I only have the Intel graphics card 3000 that came installed in my Dell Inspiron laptop.
I have a dell insperation and after having upgraded to windows 10, I came across a few issues.
The update when well and windows 10 is working on my laptop, however, I have an issue where I am presented with a black screen when i start my computer.
I do see a dell screen and a windows boot screen before it goes black so i know the issue is not a hardware issue, however after the windows boot screen passes (the one with the blueish window icon) the screen goes to black, but it is still on (meaning the monitor is still turned on just not displaying anything).
the reason i know that windows installed fine is that external monitors do work, just not my laptop monitor.
