Error: attempt to read or write outside of disk "hd0" [SOLVED]

You may be able to correct this with a grub-update, however how comfortable are you troubleshooting advanced grub issues?

Many thanks Cleverwise. I don't mind trying entering some commands to try and fix grub, but I am clueless as to where to start. There is no data on the HDD that I need so if I mess up, it's not a problem if I have to reinstall Ubuntu.

The thing I find most strange is that if I press the reset button (on the actual PC case) after a few goes the PC does boot into the Ubuntu login screen. Would that seem to point more to a hardware or software problem? While using Ubuntu I've also had a random problem where the screen goes completely white (or green etc) and the only way to get back is to restart the PC - could that be related to the boot issue?
