error: no such device:

this is about the 4th time i've tried to reinstall linux ubuntu with no results. i am attempting to have a dual boot system with ubuntu and windows 7. i have a gateway lx series with an intel core 2 quad Q8200 processor, nvidia gt120 with 1gig of dedicated ram, 8 gigs of ram. after going through the entire installation process, after it tells me to restart and kicks out the CD, before i get to select os or anything, i get this message:
error: no such device: 14150b0a-9486-4824-94c3-8d93cfa1afa4.
grub rescue>

What do i do? i want to have a decent computer to at least work with. i can load from the live cd again, but that's kind of a pain because none of my settings stay.

Thanks in advance for your time guys.
