nvidia geforce qstn - shutdown messages not shown


hey all.
i just installed the nvidia drivers from their download site on nvidia.com.
it works great, but ... when i shutdown my machine, i dont see any messages.
like, the screen just goes blank, and then after everything is unloaded, it shuts down.
i would like to see those messages, and not just look at the blank screen wondering if its gonna shutdown or not.

any ideas bout this?
as always, thanks a million.
