Have you upgraded the RAM? If so, do you still have the old RAM available?

If memory isn't the culprit, you have some other hardware problem in all likelihood since it affects both the cardreader and the internal drive. If you can make a bootable thumb drive on another system, you can try that. But I wouldn't be surprised if that gave you trouble, too.

Grub error 17 means the bootloader can't find the boot partition.
Using a Windows computer download Universal USB Installer: http://www.pendrivelinux.com/universal-usb-installer-easy-as-1-2-3/
Install any linux distro on the USB device. TRK would be my suggestion as it has tools to repair partitions and reinstall grub.

i managed to solve the problem by creating a bootable usb (bootable usb creator for ubuntu)and the only os that seemed to go through was ubuntu ... windows and fedora would not boot at all...(thx bc advisor that was helpful)
