what do you mean by "stopped comming up"??

I do not use Ubuntu, but I think the default partition manager should be gparted (as in many Debian-based distro), so my first guess would be to bring up a terminal and type
sudo apt-get install --reinstall gparted
sudo aptitude reinstall gparted
depending on which one is your favourite package manager...

The default for Ubuntu is no longer gparted, but palimpsest. Please use apt-get and not aptitude.

sudo apt-get install --reinstall palimpsest
