Nvidia Geforce 7300 GS overheats very quickly and system freezes. Also

Once the PSU has been swapped and the additional fan fitted we can suggest some tests for you. if however you have a malware issue and you cannot resolve it yourself you must seek the assistance of the experts on the malware forums, again do not do this until the hardware has been upgraded as the Techs there cannot help you while there is a suspect PSU fitted.

Either way, I really hope replacing the fan and PSU will fix my problems. Apparently someone else had such issues crashing as well and it fixed theirs. If anything, at best I hope my VGA is broken. (I can easily replace it with my friend's. Motherboard and other hardware are beyond me however.)
I will be able to access it tomorrow (sunday).

A cautionary note, heat and a poor power supply stresses hardware and so brings about a premature end of life to such hardware thus meaning that any damage that may have been done is irreparable and will not be remedied by adding new components.

I found a VGA at home that has a built in fan. Nvidia Geforce 4 TI 4200 with 128MB video RAM. Just enough to play NWN2. I'll see if my friend's computer has a stronger VGA or not.
It also Appear HWmonitor thinks my 12 V rail is faulty as well.
I've got my hands on a pair of VGA's but decided against testing them until I replace my PSU.

So brushes are ill-advised for working with computers in general or only with VGA?

FIXED Finally!!! I have had this issue for a long time and tried many things. In Linux I noticed it was crashing with 3d games too which made me look at the BIOS. This may be a issue with AMD64 and video card.
Other people suggested video card was going bad, bad power supply, not true!!
PNY 7600 GS 512
AMD 64 2600
MB - ASUS K8N
Fix for me was:
1.) Turn off APIC stuff in the BIOS
2.) Must reinstall windows after this (Didn't work without reinstalling)
On another forums I read it's dead VGA and apparently a replacement fixed it. It turns out Nvidia is not the best brand as per their product's durability.
I've been reading on your forums and found
Crashes during memory intensive tasks such as using Photoshop, playing 3d games etc..
When intensive programs are used there is a greater risk of hardware over-stressing itself, thus causing errors. This is actually an area of testing completed by Memtest to check for RAM stability.
The general term for this would be stress testing. This is were hardware is put under extra pressure to perform large task. Faulty RAM would not be able to cope in most instances under this pressure thus singling it out as faulty.
