-make sure your up to date .
it sound like your Grub has gone wrong to fix do the following -
 open up a terminal  type the following :
Code: [Select]
sudo sudo update-grub to fix GRUB 
now restart by typing :
Code: [Select]
sudo reboot
hope it helps

Thanks for the reply . I can't get into the terminal because all I get is a blank screen.
