Maybe you have to experiment a bit with timing of pressing the shift key during boot (try pressing it earlier, try a bit later ...).

Is this a laptop or a desktop computer?
Which Ubuntu release are you using?
What happens if you select shutdown or reboot from the cogwheel in the top right corner of the screen?

Can you help with this problem?
