Question no boot after upgrade to 10.10 on dell m5030

I just bought a dell m5030 laptop. It has 3 gigs of ram, and a 320 gig harddrive. It also has an ati radeon 4250 video card with 512 meg of ram on the video card. I had successfully installed ubuntu 10.04 in a dual boot with windows 7 and everything worked fine but now I've upgraded to 10.10 and I get to os selection menu. But after selecting linux I only get a flashing dash in the corner. Any suggestions? I've tried to manipulate grub but can't seem to find menu.lst
