Grub not loading


I had a dual boot config with Grub to choose from xp and suse. I restarted this morning and all i have now is the grub prompt. I tried some quick fix stuff... but i really don't know what i'm doing with Grub. I can't seem to find my answer in the forum. The things that i have found don't work.

What do i need to do to get grub running again? Or at least boot into XP cause I have projects that i have to finish....

Thanks.
