Default Linux reboot issue

I have a HP Slimline s3200z PC that uses nVidia motherboard and graphics card. I installed Linux CentOS 4.4 64-bit (a clone of RedHat 4) on it. The problem is when I reboot via "reboot" or "shutdown -r now", the system goes through the reboot process, but does not actually reboot. It just displays a message saying wait for system to reboot, but it doesn't power off and power back up. I have to manually press and hold the power button to power it off and back on. The "halt" or "shutdown now" works fine -- the system actually powers off as expected. I suspect this is a motherboard compatibility issue. I have installed both the nvlan and GeForce drivers for Linux. I have looked in the BIOS, but didn't see any relevant settings. I have attached the lspci and lsmod dumps:
