Default [Q] Bootloop to reset, bootloop to reset

Hi folks,
I'm in a circle here. My Galaxy Nexus GSM is pure stock, it runs 4.1.2 Jellybean.
The other night it started to bootloop. I chalked it up to a loss and reset via bootloader.After the reset it went right back into looping, only this time it actually shows me a split second of my old wallpaper...obviously it did not reset. Tried that multiple times, same thing.
I've tried the WUG program, installing a rom via cmd prompts, Ive tried a lot. How the heck can you do anything to this thing when its not recognized by your Windows 7? Is it time to give up?
Thanks, Mike
