More than likely a heat sync problem. your CPU and GPU will need to be re-seated as well. Had the same problem and fixed mine. I run my own home based pc repair business in southern california. If you would like me to fix it email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

This is known as the yellow light of death.(ylod) It's about 150 bucks to have it serviced unless it's still under warranty.It says in the manual it is an overheating issue.
