Some computers have a special keyboard-button to access the restore-partition at boot time.

locate the PAUSE button on your keyboard. reboot your computer and press the PAUSE button on the POST screen. if you see the Ubuntu or Windows Logo then you've gone too far and have to reboot again. on the POST screen it gives you information like how fast your cpu is, how much ram you have, and the special keys to enter the bios, change bootup options, and system-restore if your computer provides this feature.

instead of doing a system restore, i recommend doing a fresh install of Ubuntu 10.04.

Are you using the Netbook Edition?

Maybe if you can take a screenshot and post it here so we can see exactly what your problem is?
