You need a new cooler, Common. The cooler has to be very tight against the chipset. There can be no air at all, just an extremely thin film of thermal paste. It is absolutely imperative that all the lock down brackets are in place and functioning properly.
The north bridge chipset controls the video...without adequate cooling, you machine will continue to hang and shutdown.

i see it needs a couple of big holes for those screws to go in. my old cooler all it used was tiny hinges. so would that cooler work with all mobos or do i have to get the exact ones...

What motherboard do you have and I'll see if I can find a more compatible cooler for you.
