Unhappy >>URGENT<<.Nexus 7 Google Screen..Cant access Recovery. AND not recognizing Nexus 7

>>URGENT<<.Nexus 7 Google Screen stuck.Cant access Recovery. AND Windows 7 wont recognize my Nexus 7 2013

Nexus 7 2013 is stuck on Google screen. i just had and when i first booted it fooling around with a custom rom(cyanogenmod) that for some reason did not have android market/google play store. I then decided i wanted to return it to stock and at first for some reason I have a MAJOR hassle with downloading the drivers. Reguardless of the drivers the nexus 7 either becomes unknown device, other, or Android Phone. I have downloaded them from source, mirrors, Wugs,Nexus toolkit. Whenever i even attempt anything with Wugs Kit, it just says some error about ADB and if not that Fast boot. I tried installing fastboot and ABD and also tried this application called Minimal ADB and Fastboot but got similar results. I attempted it to restore to stock rom with MANY different types of tutorials including copying and pasting then to cmd and use the "flash-all.bat" command. All it would ever do is crash whenever it got to fastboot.exe. Also there is another issue with Android SDK when i attempted to use it to resolve this. It was just very confusing on how it operated because i did not understand the directions as well as the driver issue. I also attempted Unified Android Toolkit but it could not recognize my Nexus 7 as a device (driver problem again).This is very VERY frustrating because it will not work for me. i just want to get my nexus back to stock then root again without a custom rom. For some reason my computer recognizes it as an android phone and will not let it register as anything else even with correct build file. i can no longer access usb debugging because in one of the many tutorials it said to: clear cache. divalk cache, wipe data, format data, format system, etc. you get the point. I have NO IDEA how to fix this i have been at this for at least 6 hours straight. Please can somebody help me resolve this i do not know what to do anymore and it is VERY important that i get this fixed. It is really stressing me out.
Thank you..

Here are sources I know will work.


Fastboot and ADB:

That third one has "flash-all.bat" to flash the stock recovery and ROM. The bootloader must be unlocked first, which I presume is the case since you've flashed CM. (BTW, CM requires flashing a separate gapps file, which is why you didn't have Play Store installed.) With what you've been flashing, I suggest a full wipe before flashing:

fastboot erase boot
fastboot erase cache
fastboot erase recovery
fastboot erase system
fastboot erase userdata

One thing to make sure of: open the command prompt as an administrator, otherwise cmd.exe won't have enough rights.

To get back to stock download the stock images from:

The Nexus 7 2013 is aka razor

once you download them put the device in fastboot mode Vol down + Power
then run flash-all.bat

For it not recognizing things, uninstall all Nexus device driver's.
Then install ones you KNOW work wug toolkit I guess a lot of peeps talk about and it seems to work well.
I would prefer the factory driver's if you are having issues to eliminate with 3rd party software etc..

Hopefully that helps.
