Question 6800GS not recognized after a reboot?

Hi. I have an eVGA PCI-E 6800GS in a DFI NF4 UT Ultra-D mainboard running FC4 x86-64. Aside from the blank screen using the nvidia drivers (but only blank on the DVI output, VGA output is fine), the driver seems to be working okay.

My main problem is that I cannot do a warm reboot. If I attempt to 'shutdown -r' or 'reboot', the mainboard resets but hangs during POST. According to the mainboard's diagnostic LEDs, it cannot find the 6800GS following a warm reboot. If I want to reboot, I have to do a complete power-cycle in order for the 6800GS to be recognized.

I should add that (a) this doesn't seem to be related to the nvidia X11 driver since it will also happen if I boot to run level 3 then reset without ever entering X and (b) it doesn't seem to be related to FC4's x86-64 stuff since I've been able to duplicate the behavior using the FC4 i386 rescue CD.

Anybody seen this type of behavior? Does the kernel need to do anything special to properly reset the 6800GS? Perhaps an ACPI setting that I'm missing?
