Step 1: Start your computer with a Ubuntu Live CD
Step 2: Find your linux partition by typing sudo fdisk -l
Step 3: Mount the Linux Partition sudo mount /dev/nameofpartition /mnt
Step 4: Install GRUB sudo grub-install --root-directory=/mnt /dev/sda
Step 5: update GRUB - sudo update-grub

I think this could resolve your problem.
