video no longer supported

Asked by Benjamin Walker on 2012-01-14

I have windows 7 on my computer and have Ubuntu installed for almost a year now. When I updated to the new version of ubuntu it stopped letting me access the boot menu to get into windows.
It tells me the video is not supported whenever I start up my computer and will only allow me onto ubuntu.
It wont let me access the bios and re-install windows. I can't use my back-up disks to bring windows back up, and I don't have a re=install disk for windows.
Please help
