My PC is literately a couple months out of warranty and it is just now developing sever overheating of my video card. Since it is out of warranty my husband who is a computer tech and A+ certified too the door off to take a look and its actually really clean inside with nearly no dust at all. He updated the drivers and ran virus scans and maleware scans and everything came back clean. I don't know why but all of a sudden my video card seem to run 50-53c at no load (idle temp). I have had several Blue screens of death and my PC restarts often with no warning at all. The cpu temp seems to be within range and I don't really even game on this PC other than flash games.

Try reseating (remove and replace) the video card.
What video card is in your PC?
You can download PC Wizard to look the video card temperature and fan speed. What do you see? Additionally, what temperatures are processors running at?
