    Did you install/remove any software before this happened? Do you have all of your partitions located on one drive or did you use LVM? Can you open a terminal and do

    Code:
    $ cd $HOME
    $ ls -al
    Do you see them with these commands?

    Stop using system. And use your liveCD/DVD/Flash.

    Post this from live install. If you have separarte /home partition, click on it in liveCD to mount it.

    sudo parted /dev/sda unit s print
    # check sizes of
    Partition sizes
    df -Th | sort
    Inodes:
    df -i
    cd / or cd /home (if mounted from liveCD may be /media/yourname if separate partition)
    sudo du -hc --max-depth=1
    Shows just /
    sudo du -hx --max-depth=1 / 2> /dev/null

    And see if testdisk shows a missing partition.
