Linux Mint 17 Qiana Stuck on Black screen with a Cursor

Greetings. I am a Linux Mint Qiana user, I wanted to make use of my Bluetooth but nothing I got online worked until I saw something saying I might upgrade the Kernel, but I couldn't since my laptop is slow.
I checked how to make it fast, then I saw the swap settings, I tried that to but it became very slow.
Now it is stuck on the black screen with a cursor. I've tried everything that's there on askubuntu, on the net but I seem not to find a solution. It also shows (gnome-open:4004): GConf-WARNING **: client failed to connect to the D-BUS daemon: unable to autolaunch a d-bus daemon without $DISPLAY for X11

Reboot. Hold down the shift key and select
Previous Versions to boot from your older kernel.
