PC not booting

Since moving my PC, running Fedora 9 (recently upgraded from 7) it will not boot. The only thing different is the monitor, which works OK anyway.
I get a single beep, (all OK in Award bios), it gets as far as PCI device listing, shows the devices, then says "verifying pool data" followed by "update success".
The last line (at the bottom of the screen) says GRUB (in upper case) followed by a flashing cursor, and then goes no further.
I have a Foxconn 945P7AD motherboard. I'm using same wired router connection, mouse and keyboard as before, and have no other hardware connected. All was well before.
Can anyone help, please?

How many hds does your computer have? If it has two or more check the connectors.

try to boot the installed OS by the use of the install CD, you should have an option repair

Once you 've boot, you could choose to repair to installed system, and then, try to fix the grub config.

Have a look on :

if OK try grub-install
