primary screen doesn't work anymore since i've updated

Hello Everybody!

I have a problem.
I've got Ubuntu since a month or two, and I never had a problem with it, untill now.
Since I've updated to Ubuntu 11.10 my primary screen just doesn't do anything anymore, except for a flash when I start my netbook.
I can't even see the screen where I have to choose between Ubuntu and Windows anymore.
And Also, before the update I had the choice between Windows and Ubuntu, and after I made that choice, I had to choose between all the versions of Ubuntu that I've had on my pc.
When I take an external screen, the primary still doesn't work, but the secondary does, and the only choices I get to see on that screen is Windows and Ubuntu, not the previous versions.
Can someone please help me out, this is a real pain in the butt for me, because now, when I want to work on my laptop with Ubuntu I have to be home, and I really don't like Windows since I've worked with Ubuntu, and I would like to use my laptop everywhere, on Ubuntu.

Thanks already!
