    You will need to post more information to actually get help. Are you using the most recent version of Ubuntu? 12.04. Is Ubuntu the only system on the computer? Have you had it installed and working? If so, what changes to hardware/software were made recently? Have you done any updates? If it is a new systeem that has never booted, let us know. Also, if it is new and you still have the Ubuntu CD, boot it up and open a terminal and run this command: sudo fdisk -l(lower case Letter L in the command) and post the output here.

    When you boot the system and get the grub prompt (grub>) type: ls and post the output here.
