Windows 7 - No icon at login screen

So I was playing civilization 5 while using CCC amd overdrive as my gpu was heating up. I changed some of the performance and fan speed but CCC froze. I tried saving my game in civ 5 but that also froze so I cold booted my pc. Afterward I couldn't start up my pc without getting stuck at the login screen with no user icon. Additionally, there's black borders around the login screen. I've tried all safe mode options but I can't do anything without accessing the desktop. I've tried starting windows normally and last known good configuration and the same thing happens (login screen with no user + black bordered). I thought this was an driver issue at first cause it was hanging up after windows loading files but then it got to the login screen.

Please help if possible, thanks.
