"know just wont boot" -- could be a keyboard problem! :P

Where does it stop in the boot sequence when you turn on boot messages? Has Windows messed with the loader? Does Windows boot? What does the boot selector give you as options? What did you do just before it stopped booting? Boot from the live CD or a USB stick and examine the logs.

Best was to TRY Ubuntu is to install Wubi. No repartitioning necessary as the Linux filespace is then contained in a large Windows file which you can delete.

it passes the boot selection screen (where you select either one of five ubuntu options or windows) loads the ubuntu boot screen then just hangs! windows 7 loads ok otherwise i wouldn't be typing this!

So... have you tried booting in recovery mode? Unplug any USB devices.

Disable the splash screen so you can read the boot messages.
