Find out make of hard drive download their diagnostic tool from their web site burn it to disc and boot from that if it is corrupt boot sector it should repair it for you.

had same problem with Acer laptop they have Hitachi drive which has excelent diagnostic software.

If you have anything you wish to save first (just in case) you can run straight from CD with Ubuntu and should be able to access data if hard drive still working.
