Did you take a look at this question? - Stuck on Grub command line – Nitin Venkatesh Dec 10 '11 at 13:11

You need to use a live CD to recover your Grub installation.

Follow the steps in desgua's answer Stuck on Grub command line as well as having a good read through the Ubuntu Community documentation page for Grub2.
