Windows 7: I can't boot into windows

02 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
I can't boot into windows

I used these files (Windows 7 | Login Screen Reworked by ~alexandru-r-ghinea on deviantART) to tweak my logon, and now am unable to boot into windows it seems. I get past the loading symbol, then i just get a black screen with a cursor, i thought it might just be a display thing so i tried to log on anyways, but no success. Then i tried to get into recovery/restore mode via DVD, nothing, i just get a black screen with a blinking underscore. Now im thinking i might have to clear CMOS and reset BIOS? or perhaps a total reinstall of the OS? Im running Windows 7 profesional 64-bit, and mobo is asus p8p67-m pro.
Thanks in advance

Clear BIOS Hardware/Software Connections and Corruption in Temporary Memory:
  1. Shut down and turn off the computer.
  2. Unplug the computer from the wall or surge protector (then remove the battery if it is a laptop).
  3. "Remove the computer from any port replicator or docking station, disconnect
    cables to printers or devices such as external monitors, USB memory sticks or SD cards, headset or external speakers, mouse or auxiliary keyboard, turn off WIFI and Bluetooth wireless devices." (Use Hard Reset to Resolve Hardware and Software Issues HP Pavilion dv5000 Notebook PC series - HP Customer Care (United States - English))
  4. Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This closes the circuit and ensures all
    power from components is drained to clear the software connections between the BIOS
    and hardware and clear any corruption in the temporary memory.
  5. (If it is a laptop, plug the battery back into the laptop and then) Plug the computer back into the wall. Do not reconnect any unnecessary peripherals; monitor, keyboard,
    and mouse should suffice and be the only peripherals reconnected.
  6. Turn it on to reinitialize the software connections between the BIOS and hardware
