Elementary not booting (SOLVED)

First time I'm totally lost with linux :/ I guess there must be a first time for everything! :P

The problem I'm having is I cannot boot into elementary. I select it in the grub and the after the elementary logo the screen stays black. I have a windows 10 dual boot if it matters...

I've tried recovery mode, but honestly I dont know how to fix it from the console since I dont even know what the problem is...

Last thing I did was creating a folder in /etc/X11/ trying to modify the synaptics driver. After failing I removed it, but as far as I know I did it correctly, so it shouldnt be the problem. I also updated the system through the app center.

Any help on where should I start to detect the fail?

Thanks in advance, I looking fordward to continue using it!

EDIT: Well, it looks like I did mess it up with the synaptics driver. After booting into the terminal, I executed startx and I saw there was an error related to 40-synaptics.conf file. I deleted all the text I added and voilá!

Thanks everyone!
