    Need help


    Well it may not be a blue screen of death I call it a black screen of death. We had a power outage yesterday while my computer was on. Now it won't fully boot and it comes up with a black screen with the following text

    Error: no such device: nnnnnnn-nnnn-nnnn-nnnnnnn nnnnnnn-nnnn-nnnn-nnnnnnn
    Entering rescue mode. . .
    Grub rescue>

    I have no idea what that means or what happened. Please help as soon as possible! Thank you for your time

    Hi Jbotts & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

    Are you using a dual boot machine? Because GRUB is the bootloader for Linux.

    Thank you,
    I believe it is dual boot machine. But this computer was custom made (by someone else) and im not very computer savy.
