when I start my computer, the system starts in GRUB. If I run these commands (as follows):

set root=(hd0,1)
linux /vmlinuz root=/dev/sda1
initrd /initrd.img

I can start Ubuntu, but then when I go to restart, it loads to GRUB and I have to keep typing the commands in grub to boot.

How can I fix this so when I turn on my computer Ubuntu will run without having to keep typing in these commands every time?

You have to fix grub-boot loader properly, so you don't have to type command every time you boot system.

Try the boot repair CD or boot repair tool. Boot with this CD and let repair the program your grub.
