So you don't see any Grub related text on the screen at all as it 
boots?  If you do what happens if you press the escape key immediately?

Did you install Windows after Ubuntu?  If so then Windows just overwrote 
the master boot record.  Microsoft doesn't worry about little things 
like multiple boot.

As mentioned before you should be able to use the Ubuntu Live CD to 
restore GRUB.  See this thread on Ubuntu Forums:
