Is there any way you can get a linux live CD of any kind?
You must have had an install CD in order to install Ubuntu. Do you still have it?
If you can boot from any type of linux live CD, just run (as root or with sudo):
Replace Xy with the drive and partition # of your Ubuntu root partition, Then reboot into your system without booting the live CD.
