Need Nerd Help

So I stayed up really late last night, and in my compromised state I decided I would venture way out into left field and install Ubuntu.

So I inserted the LiveCD and selected to just completely write over the existing information on my harddrive.

Everything ran fine. Installation seemed to go fine until the program automatically ejected the LiveCD (which seemed like what was supposed to happen). A list of some sort of error messages cascaded down the page and the computer continued with the reboot.

When the computer started I ended up at a screen that said: error:no such device:...grub rescue>

Tried to install from CD again, tried installing Linux Mint 9 instead. No dice.

Help?
