Default Strange graphic card overheating

Hi,I'm sorry that I rushed this topic as soon as I registered,but it is kind of urgent.My graphic card is overheating very much.I can't even hold my finger on it for 1 second.I don't know exact name of card,sorry,but it doesn't have a fan,instead it has some kind of ribbed metal plate that is supposed to work as a cooler(it lookes like it's aluminum).I don't play any hard graphic games,just warcraft III.Even when I'm not doing anything at all,the card is freaking scorching.Please help me if you know what should I do.If there is some kind of software,or any video that can show me how to fix hardware please give me links,or simply tell me what to do.Thank you very much!

I think you should buy a 3rd party fan for your graphics card. i would suggest not using the pc until you get one to save the component from dieing.
