    When you say you have to "Wait for an hour" do you mean you turn off the machine for an hour and then start it up? And then after awhile it shuts down again?
    If yes, then it is probably a Hardware problem i.e. your RAM chip(s), Video card, etc. that is heating up and giving you this grief.
    Experts will be along soon to give you advice on how to check this stuff out.

    You could check for dust and while your at it, check your RAM(s) to make sure it is seated properly and then check all your Cards i.e. Video card , Sound card, etc. to make sure they are also sitting snuggly in their slots.
    Check all cables to make sure they are tight.
    Check all your Fans to make sure they are spinning.
    But again, as I said before, others with more experience will show you some TOOLS that can detect hardware problems.

    If and when you install Win7, it would be Most preferrable in Your Case that you do a Clean Install since you have problems and you do not want to drag those problems via an upgrade.

    Good luck with your install
