Is this normal for a 6800 to not show that? I've got a suspiscion that the bios may have been changed so I was wondering if that could cause it.
The bootup message you mention is a standard function of your VGA cards bios !
To enable or disable (or even have your own personal bootup message displayed) simply requires modding the 6800gt's bios with a nvidia vga bios editor like NiBiTor 3.3 linked below.
