Windows 7: Account not showing up on login screen

Account not showing up on login screen

Today I was trying to log in to my computer after a restart. The computer booted and the screen with the Windows 7 Ultimate logo appeared. However, it does not have the username/password box, so I can't log in. The screen is also refreshing (turning black for a second and coming on again) but it is still blank. I tried booting in Safe Mode, but the same problem occurs. Any ideas?

I built the computer 3 years ago, and it hasn't had any problems. It has an AMD 4990 processor with an Asus motherboard (not sure what kind).

can't login to an account, brings back to the login screen
when I try to login to either of the accounts, it flashed for a second and then goes back to the login screen. I did an offline defender scan and remove a few adware, but I don't think they were the cause. Is there any way I could monitor the login process and see what's failing.
