Did you install using WUBI? That is, were you in Windows when you installed Ubuntu? Or did you boot the CD and then install on the same disk as Windows 7?

When you start the PC, do you see the GRUB screen that asks if you want to boot Ubuntu or Windows? Or is this where the screen is blank so you cannot tell?

i experienced the same thing before.
this what i did, i fixed the boot settings for my Win.7 using the DVD. the program called "repair" and select something related to boot.
and then i fixed the grub setting for ubuntu.

i wasnt really sure what happened that time, but it worked.

maybe we got different situation, because last time i was a stupid noob and try to install Ubuntu using WUBI on the same HDD with Windows.
