Just put new thermal compound on it.

If you feel it and it's cold, that can mean it's either not making good contact, or it's working like it's supposed to.

it looks like your drivers need to be fixed or your video card went bad

Nah, drivers arent the issue here especially if it just happened out of the blue. I've seen this and had it happen a few times. The card is just dying/dead

It's not really 'overheating' because at this point the damage is done. Time for a new card

Yeah, I;ve had a similar problem with my card. The fan slowed down tremendously and the card just overheated. It was time to get a new card.

well that sounds like a driver or overheating problem to me. try that video card in another computer and install the latest drivers for it. it could be just your computer motherboard or something could be wrong with the operating system.
