simple solution: reinstall the OS, and when the option of installing the boot loader comes up, set it to install on MBR.

should i reinstall it completely or is there a way to install grub alone

Why not try the SUper Grub Disk to reinstall grub. Just google the name and download it and save it to CD.

You should be able to reinstall grub via the live cd or if that doesn't work you can try super grub disc, which is a live cd that, as per the name, often resolves grub problems.
Please post output of terminal command
sudo fdisk -l (that's a lower case L, not a number one) This can be done from the live cd.
