When you format with windows it over writes the boot manager. All you need to do is to re-install your boot manager. If your using Ubuntu then its probably grub. Put in the your ubuntu CD and pick the option to install grub

You need to go into RESCUE MODE to recove GRUB/LILO They are your Boot Loaders for Linux. They got over written by windows when you re-installed. so you can either repair it with your Ubuntu disc or reinstall Ubuntu.

Hope that helped.

It did help someway... Because I did know that I could do it in the recuse mode. But my problem is that when I open recuse mode. Do it stop after a while. And do not continue... Do sombody know what the problem is?

try using a low setting text mode installation instead of GUI installation. That might do the trick, since your video card is not detected yet. Hope that works.
