You can cicle by the datagrid rows. On each row, compare if the left part of the first column text contents the search string in hte textbox. If found, then select the current row and exit.

For Row As Integer = 0 To Dgview.Rows.Count
	If Dgview.Rows(Row).Cells(0).Value.ToString.Substring(0, textbox1.Text.Length) = textbox1.Text Then
		Dgview.Rows(Row).Selected = True
		Exit For
	End If
Next

Hope this helps
