YLOD can be caused by a few things, this solution covers the "Sepereted CPU/GPU FiX"
Posted by NemisizZ on
If you are getting the YLOD or yellow light I will run through what causes it and how you can fix it.
The yellow light is caused by internal overheating and the main chips that take the damage are the GPU and the CPU.
You need to stop the heat build up and you will be able to get back to gaming again.
You can either send the console back in for repair and they will fix it for you, however it will take about 4 weeks to get this done and it will cost about $150 for the repair!
For a faster way to fix it you can use a good YLOD Repair guide that will show you with videos how to stop the heat build up and get back to gaming.
The important thing is to make sure that you get a guide that is up to the job!
