You need to read this article and use your live cd to perform the tasks. Here is one precaution to take

Important note: Configuration changes are normally made to /etc/default/grub and to the custom files located in /etc/grub.d. The /boot/grub/grub.cfg file should not be edited by the user; changes to this file are made by configuration scripts. After editing /etc/default/grub, you need to run sudo update-grub for your changes to take effect on the next boot.

Sir you asked me to update my grub.sir are sure there's a problem with my grub because I even discussed my problem with members of this forum and ubuntuforum.According to them my Xserver isn't working correctly.This problem occurred only after i purged glib.thanks for your concern.
