Welcome to the forums jonesli, glad to have you here
First off here is your device forum: Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 - Android Forums
Secondly, have you tried performing a factory reset, this can usually solve some of these issues, like what you are having, a "bootloop".
Try doing this by booting up into recovery and into CWM and performing a Factory reset, which will delete all of your data.
Hope this helps and thanks for joining
