Default Bootloop and unable to enter recovery. PC wont detect phone.

I rooted my One months ago when I got it, installed viper one, and Ive been loving it.
But I havent been updating it, and my viper one was on version 2.7.

I was going to wipe my phone and install the newest version, but something went wrong with the installation and it wouldn't go through, and it somehow corrupted my CWM.

Now I cannot boot back into recovery, and Im in a bootloop.

I can get into bootloader, but thats about it.
My phone is S-ON, and I can't get my PC to detect it to flash a recovery, or anything else.

Ive updated my HTC drivers, and it doesn't seem to be helping.

Edit: it seems that my PC will detect the phone while it's in bootloop, and will go as far as putting the phone into fastboot.
But once Im in fastboot, it no longer detects my phone, so I cnanot flash a recovery.

When you're in the bootloader with your phone connected. Can you see the driver installed in device manager in windows?

What Windows are you using. Use Windows 7 if you can. Windows 8+ can sometime have problems communicating with HTC drivers..
Either update Windows or make a ubuntu live USB/CD
