your problem might be because of some change in your partition table information. you can try booting into linux using a live CD and then doing:

fdisk -lchoose option x (extra functionality (experts only)) and enter.
then select f (fix partition order) and enter.
then select option w (write table to disk and exit), and enter.
Donít do anything else unless you know what you are doing.

Once you have noted down your linux and swap partitions, you should verify that that grub menu.lst shows the correct boot information.

vim /boot/grub/menu.lstOtherwise, you need to setup grub again providing the correct boot partition information. Assuming, your linux is installed in /dev/sda6, use

$ sudo grub
grub > root (hd0,5)
grub > setup (hd0)
grub > quit
