Angry Video Card Freezing

My video card (* Nvidia XFX 8600 GTS XXX) idles at 76C and at full potential its temperature is about 100C. It keeps overheating and the entire screen turns brown. I cleaned most of the dust out of it. I wiggled it it seems a little lose but I don't know how to get it out, and shove it in again as the pin wont push down/up. My card never used to do this.......

My power supply is a 350W (20.5V 12+V rail)
Video Drivers (175.16 newest*)

Try downloading either nTune or RivaTuner. They both have options to be able to turn up the fan speed on the video card.
