Error: file not found.

Grub rescue>

i have heard that you can reboot using a live cd but mine is a a buddys house and i have also heard that if you type 1s it will do something i have tried this and all i receive is <Unknown command '1s'> please help me and watch the video to see if there is something specific i need to do.

Are you dual booting with some version of Windows?

Is there a Windows OS on that PC?

 You could use a Live Linux to boot the pc and examine the drive.
