grub_getcharwidth error.

I have just, foolishly, attempted to upgrade from version 9 (not sure which one) to 10.04. All seemed to be going well, until the machine restarted, at which point the following error message occurred:

Error: the symbol 'grub_getcharwidth' not found

followed by the prompt

Grub rescue>

I have no idea what to do next. Any help would be welcome. If it helps my machine has two discs, which should mirror each other ---needless to say I did not set it up.

Is it likely that my files have been lost/damaged?
