Thumbs up grub rescue


i have installed ubuntu using WUBI, and it was working for the last 4 months. today i was trying to install lineno.sty file for latex files; using synaptic. while installing it some error message related to grub came and after the downloading was finish the system asked for rebooting. when i reboot the system it has gone to grub rescue mode. i have so many files saved in the ubuntu partition, i don't want to loose it, please help.
