Default [Q] Boot Loop - what happened?

I was on Google+ and I checked out a youtube video, it was about a 3d printed engine. After watching the video I shut the screen off and I went to bed. When I woke up in the morning my tablet was displaying the Google logo and then restarting. What did I do?? The tablet was fully charged and wasn't plugged into anything. I could understand if I was tinkering with it but I hadn't done a thing. Now I don't know what the heck to do. I've tried Wug but I can't seem to get the ADB drivers to be recognized on my laptop, Windows 7 64bit. I'm at a loss as to what I should do next. Any help would be appreciated.

It was running 4.4.2 (KOT49H) for about a week.

**I should clarify the drivers thing. Windows says everything is installed and running correctly (Android Composite ADB Interface) but Wug is saying that ADB cannot be found.

**and for whatever reason the word Composite is throwing me off with the driver thing because nowhere in Wug's tutorial is that label for the driver but my laptop only seems to find that driver.

Go into recovery mode and wipe cache and reboot and see if that fixes it.

I have it charging now. It's been plugged in since 7:30 this morning. So are we talking 8 hours, 24 hours?

I don't have the ability to go into recovery mode. All that happens is the Google logo comes up and then reboots. I can get into the fastboot screen but nothing else. I can power it off and it'll charge but reboots before it can go into recovery.

are you sure you have the correct drivers installed? I'm on Windows 7 64-bit and it works just fine.

You might want to go into device manager and remove the device completely from Windows 7 and then try reinstalling the device drivers.

Worse comes to worse, get the Nexus 7 toolkit from Skipsoft.net. It contains all the correct drivers. That's what I use.

Try that. If you can get into fastboot mode, then you will be able to reflash everything back as long as you had USB debugging enabled. You can choose to keep data or do a complete wipe of everything with the N7 toolkit.

I never used wug as I've always had great results with the N7 toolkit.

After deleting all the drivers I knew were Android I also deleted all the generic usb drivers as well, which I didn't think to do earlier, and then wug could see the correct ADB drivers.

I tried Skipsoft last night and it is far more feature rich but I had the same results. Still bootlooping. On the plus side I was able to re-lock the bootloader, which I couldn't do in wug from the fastboot screen, so I can have it covered under warranty if nothing else.

wugfresh is what I was originally using and no dice. I have a second tablet I used to determine what build I wanted to use. because both tablets where updated and everything at the same time.
