Black Grub Screen on Fedora 19

I decided to move from Ubuntu to Fedora Linux. I installed Fedora 20 beta, but because it was a bit buggy, decided to go back to 19.
After installing Fedora 19 (64 bit), I am able to boot into the system, but the grub screen is just black, in a low resolution mode.
I know that Fedora grub screens are usually very colourful with custom features. Is there any way I can reinstall grub?
I don't know if it did this because the beta version had a black grub and this did not update after the reinstall after I had reclaimed the Fedora 20 disk space?
Any help appreciated!
