Sounds like a fubared grub install. You might want to re-emerge grub clean and then run the grub setup again.

How did you install GRUB (and where)? Did you use the grub-install command, or did you run grub and install it manually? Also, where did you install it (Master Boot Record/MBR or boot sector of the partition)?

Also, just so that you know, there's a very extensive collection of GRUB-related problems and solutions available here.

I have installed it manually.

grub -->
root (hd0,0)
setup (hd0)
quit

So i installed it into MBR of the only hdd in the pc.
Reemerging doesn't help :(

Please read the "grub error collection" sticky that rouben pointed out. Your problem is described in there.
