I live in a region of frequent power cuts.So sometimes there is a power cut when I am starting my computer.The problem is whenever there is a power cut while booting then when I on my computer once again I am stuck at a purple screen which shows various boot options. There is no timer and the only solution I have for this is re-installing the system.This is annoying because it leads to a lot of data loss.All what I saved is lost and I have to start everything from scratch.
Please tell me a solution for this.Thanks in advance.

Instead of re-installing the system , try to re-install GRUB. askubuntu.com/questions/88384/… –  g_p Feb 24 at 4:42
