In a terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal), type the following command:
     sudo parted -l
where "-l" is lowercase "L". This will display list of partition.
     grub-install -v
which will display version (0.97 = Legacy, 1.97 & 1.98 = Grub 2)
If you have Grub2, run
     sudo update-grub
which will search again Windows OS, Linux OS and will build grub menu from default file

thanks for your answer delance, but the grub says Ubuntu 9.10 and no OS were loading, when selecting that says: No such device; or something like that... Don't know how but I could login to root access an ran "sudo update-grub" and startx.

everything fine until I restart the computer, the problem still there.

Can you post result of commands:
    sudo parted -l
    grub-install -v
If you are stuck with 9.10 after 10.04 install, we could have to do a fresh install.
If you have Grub legacy, could you post file /boot/grub/menu.lst.
If you have Grub2, could you post file /boot/grub/grub.cfg.
