OK, see how it goes now

If the PC has been off overnight, does it take longer to start rebooting

When you said the card was hot, was it too warm to touch for any length

Just shut down 2x in a row.

No to longer rebooting.

Yes to the heat.

Most motherboards have onboard graphics, which means you could remove the video card and run the PC that way.

The graphics won't be as good but it would further point the finger at the video card

For now at least, it's stopped. So, if unplugging it is the answer, does that mean I need a new card? Can I install a new card or should I have someone else do so?

What causes a card to fail every ten minutes and then not for ten hours?
