    i booted the ubuntu live cd becuase you can see the files on the windows partition from it,
    and it was filled with a bunch files with random names like
    just random characters for the names and none of the normal files and folders werevisible
    so i went to reformat the hardrive and it said the total hd size was 130gb when its a 160gb hd
    idk i think i screwed it all up, thanx for the help though...

    Are you able to boot up with the Super GRUB CD? if so, does it allow you an output for
    fdisk -l

    Try booting from the Ubuntu live CD again and run sudo fdisk -l ... does it show valid partition information? Something like testdisk may help you out of a spot ... I've used it to recover partition information but not had that much sucess with files.
    How valuable is the data to you?
    When you tried the re-install of Xubuntu how did the partition info get trashed?
