    grub boot problem

    I just installed ubuntu (dual-booting with Windows XP), and ive been installing necessary programs and such. i checked the "mark all upgrades" button in Synaptics and let ubuntu do its thing. after the updates were complete, i was chatting on empathy and all of the sudden i cant type....anywhere. cursor was basically useless. so i restarted my laptop, and lo and behold, the following message pops up and the boot process goes no farther:

    error: no such device: 7dabc3ea-74c2-4a53-bba3-f60d6271ffd1.
    grub rescue>

    Im at quite a loss as to what to do next, and any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    Can you boot from the rescue mode?
    Express Boot to the Most Recent Kernel
    Command Summary ls to see drive X & partition Y (hdX,Y) or sdXY:
    set root=(hdX,Y)
    linux /vmlinuz root=/dev/sdXY ro
    initrd /initrd

    What partition is the error? From liveCD to see UUIDs:
    sudo blkid

    Did you edit any partitions before error appeared?
