For starters, tell us a bit about what your system is (Graphics card, RAM, CPU) then also what games have the problems, and if you know it, what temp it heats up to...

Have you got all the latest driver updates for your GPU?

if not, it probably wont fix your problem, but you should check out the device's website and get the latest drivers, as for the system taking 1 or 2 minutes to boot up, sounds like you have a few different problems.
As for the card heating, it could be a number of things. Inadequate ventilation in your case could be one, maybe the fan on your GPU isnt running at full speed..

Here is a link from microsoft's website, dealing with slow startup issues. In my case, when i have a slow startup problem, i usually do all of these things. Also check your bios to see if there are any options for accellerated startup. 1 to 2 minutes is a very long time to have to wait at startup, and suggests a serious problem. Also check your antivirus, clear your startup programs by going;

start->Run->msconfig->startup tab, then disable all. Then restart windows.

that should get you started... try those and post back..

Hmmm. P4 CPUs "throttle down" when they get too hot in order to avoid burning out. In other words, they greatly reduce their speed when they get too hot.

It takes about 6 seconds or so for a CPU to overheat from power up. One famous example of this is the Athlon XP. It was very common for people to not install the fan properly on them, and in one example one of my clients forgot to take the protective tape off of the thermal tape on the heatsink. The CPU melted through it and burned out in seconds... The frustrating thing was that he expected me to replace it under warranty.

Anyways...back to what I was saying. A visual inspection would be mandatory at this point. Ensure that your CPU fan is working. Make sure that you have removed the protective tape. If you applied thermal paste make sure that you only have the thinnest of layer on your CPU covering the entire surface.

Try that first and then post back here and we can see if we need to look deeper.
