Can you list the partitions on this computer and what is on each? (If
you have one with Windows on it, list that as "Free Space".)

Also, if the live CD lets you edit/add grub entries, you might try some
there so that you could just boot your computer from the live cd and
reinstall grub once you've booted that way. It may not be possible, I
have only edited grub entries from grub that was working on the mbr.
