Some sort of shutdown

Hi,

I did have Ubuntu lucid lynx for a while, I had it with Windows alongside it in a joint partition but I did something bad it seems and now when I turn on the computer when it comes to when it asks for what I want, ie: Windows or Ubuntu, and I push enter on Ubuntu the screen goes black and does not get to even the login page.

Please help as this is really frustrating and I want to get away from windows and have only Ubuntu on my computer. I am half thinking weather I have to re-download Ubuntu again.

Thanks :(
