Do you get the grub loader prompt with the list of vmlinuz* to boot (and windows if you have that installed)? If you don't even get that far, sounds like your MBR may have gotten hosed. You will need a rescue disk I think to get around that issue.

You can boot/fix grub menu by Super Grub Disk

Download Super Grub Disk (http://forjamari.linex.org/projects/supergrub/)
Burn into a cdrom (better) or a floppy
Boot from it

This program, QGRUBeditor is really good program to fix/add new Grub menu.

http://linuxappfinder.com/package/qgrubeditor (http://linuxappfinder.com/package/qgrubeditor)

1 First, use super grub disk and "advance and tool" and "show partition"
Find out what is your windows root number (hd0,?). ? part is important

2 By using QGRUBeditor, you can add windows grub menu.

Windows will be like this

title Windows 7 (Boot)
root (hd0,*)
chainloader +1

Ubuntu will be like

title Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, kernel 2.6.32-21-generic
root (hd0,5)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.32-21-generic root=UUID=e3265ff1-6500-457 ro quiet splash
initrd /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-21-generic
