    hi hobz !!

    Today while booting my PC when grub starts to load I see the word GRUB and a blinking cursor, Menu does not show up
    any clue?
    i dont know if it is coz of nvidia drivers or something else, but GRUB has been corrupted..
    you have to reinstall it...

    boot up from Linux Installation CD/DVD and type linux rescue at boot: prompt. this will drop you at shell prompt. execute this
    Code:
    chroot /mnt/sysimage
    grub-install /dev/hda
    if you have SATA disk then use sda instead of hda

    press Ctrl + D two times. machine will reboot and GRUB will be back in business.
