Exclamation Error on startup. Unknown file filesystem grub rescue>. What to do??


Yesterday I installed the latest version of ubuntu to my computer that was already running windows 7. I had everything working fine until in windows I deleted a partition that had nothing in it. After this I restarted but I can't get into either OS. I get an error that says
Error: unknown filesystem
grub rescue>

I think I need to fix something in grub. I have been booting off of a usb stick with linux on it in the mean time. I am very new to this and the things I find on the web don't make any sense to me. Can someone please help me??
