Sometimes happen,
1. Boot with Linux CD (Same version installed recommended)
2. Write on First prompt     boot:   write
linux rescue

3. Now enter command: (your hard drive is automatically mounted in /mnt/sysimage)
chroot /mnt/sysimage

if you know the boot drive i.e. /dev/hda  write this drive in the command:
grub-install /dev/hda

If Your grub will not load system without hitting enter on keyboard
edit Your /etc/grub.conf and add/modify before first title line

If it will not load system at all, follow shoaibbhatti007 instructions (usually: /sbin/grub-install # alone is fine)
