How Come And Why During My Linux Ubuntu v.11.10 64-bit Booting And Loading Did I Initially Receive A "Read Error_" Message At The Top Left Of My Monitor Screen? Is There A Solution To This Issue?

Hello. I have a question to ask you regarding Linux Ubuntu v.11.10 64-bit.
I haven't used my desktop computer in over 8 hours for simply not being on it for other responsibilities I needed to do. Then I rebooted my desktop computer the first time since the 8 hours. Following all the typical BIOS booting procedures of my ASUS P5Q motherboard, I normally boot into my Ubuntu operating system's login screen without issue. This time and the first time I might add, I received immediately following the BIOS booting, the word phrase “Read Error_” in white DOS-like characters in the upper left corner on a black monitor screen. I waited a couple of minutes. The system halted there. I then manually rebooted my computer with the reset switch on my desktop computer. I then received following the BIOS booting, the “GRU GRUB version 1.99-12ubuntuS” screen. By default the “Ubuntu, with Linux 3.0.0-16-generic” first option at top of the screen was highlighted. I booted by hitting the ENTER key and the rest of Ubuntu booted and loaded fine. No further issues after that.
1. May I ask what happened and why I received the “Read Error_” message with my Ubuntu operating system halting during the Linux Ubuntu booting and loading process? This is the first time this has ever happened to me with Ubuntu.
2. If there is a procedural solution fix to this particular issue, please comment and let me know in detail as to the steps as well?
