Welcome to the Forums.
When you said "the screen is on but only the mouse arrow is visable", do you mean the Touchscreen is not working?
If the touchscreen is not working, try the following steps:
1. Open system properties to determine if the OS is detecting the touch capability.
- Link to picture (Touchscreen not working, proceed to Step 3)
- Link to picture (Touchscreen is detected, proceed to Step 2)
2. Press the Windows key +R, type devmgmt.msc and press Enter. On the device manager, click view > show hidden devices and under Human Interface Devices section, uninstall the HID-compliant device touch screen (this is the driver that controls the touchscreen). When finished, reboot the system and observe.
3. Turn off the machine and press the OneKey Recovery button and select System Recovery. On the menu, try to touch an item but don't proceed in doing the system recovery -- this is to check if the digitizer (the hardware part that enables touchscreen functionality) is working.
If the Touchscreen is working, boot back into Windows and backup important files then prooceed with the System Recovery.
If the Touchscreen is still not working even in the System Recovery menu then it's likely that the digitizer is faulty and you will need to contact lenovo for warranty service.

When you get the blank screen with cursor, can you try opening Task Manager by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc and observe.
If the Task Manager opens then it's likely similar to this thread. Can you try the solution that was suggested and observe.
Let me know how it goes.

Looks like a video driver problem.
If you're not able to see the Windows login screen after a cold boot then you may want to consider the following:
If you have created a recovery drive using this method, you will need to boot from it and try to access Safe Mode. If you didn't create a recovery drive, you can use another Windows 8/8.1 and create the recovery drive there.
Alternatively, you can also try to trigger the push-button reset mode (this is like a recovery environment to restore the pc fromr previous working state). To do this, hold the power button while on the Windows loading screen (you need to do this twice). If successful, you'll an prompt similar to this image. From here, select See advanced repair options > Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > Windows Startup Settings and select Safe Mode
If booting in Safe Mode works, uninstall the display driver and boot in normal mode and observe.
Shutdown the machine, press the OneKey Recovery button and select System Recovery. If you get to the recovery screen, proceed in restoring the machine to factory settings and observe (note that this will wipe all data on the OS Partition)
