GRUB error 22


Hello,
I'm a beginner using Linux and informatics and I would like to apologize for my bad English.
I had installed Windows xp and Linux Ubuntu 8.04 in my laptop. By mistake I installed Ubuntu by twice so later I decided to delete one of the Ubuntu partitions using GParted live cd.
Since I did this thing when I turn my laptop on, after BIOS screen, a message apperas telling me "GRUB Loadig stage1.5. GRUB loading, please wait... Error 22".
I can't access to my computer I can't use neither Ubuntu nor my other operating system (Windows xp).
How to solve this?
Thanks in advance!

From a terminal in the Ubuntu liveCD try this
Code:
sudo grub
find /boot/grub/stage1 <<<=== try /grub/stage1 if you get "File not found"
 .... take note of what it returns - maybe (hd0,1)
root <enter_what_was_returned>   e.g. root (hd0,1)
setup (hd0)
quit
Then reboot - all should work.

Thank you, it have worked for me.
It have restored me GRUB options screen.
Later I've had to update menu.lst and UUID values to the partition where I have Ubuntu installed in order to be able to boot it from GRUB.
