My xps 600 computer will not turn on. It has been suddenly turning off, and when i check the back it feels really hot (the upper vent). I suspect that this is because i put a video card in it. whenever it does shut down, the power button blinks with a yellow color and i am not able to turn it back on until the back feels cooler, or i unplug the computer from the wall. However, even when i do this now it continues to blink yellow regardless of how many times i unplug it.

this is your mullina heater, or if its older the yoda loop......
but if your concerned that its really hot, check you condensor area, it probably needs a good cleaning
make sure the vents on the back are clean
make ssure the condensor fan,, back by compressor is clear as well
It is very hard to tell when the processor is overheating. The laptop may not feel hot at all. If it is an overheating problem, there could be two different causes. One, the fan may be failing or completely failed. Two, there could be dust buildup on the heatsink which you would not be able to see by looking in the vents. The laptop would need to be disassembled to check the heatsink for the buildup. An easy way to check to see if the fan is working is to turn the computer on, let it run for just a few minutes and if the fan is not blowing hard enough for you to feel it with your hand, try holding the vents up near your face to see if you can feel any air flow.
Make sure you check your exhaust hose.
It shuld be clear of any lint , and properly exhausted to outside of the home .
Try turning on the druer with no load and no heat , find your outside vent and check for air flow . If none is felt you suhld move your dryer away from wall ( if aplicable ) and disconnect the hose and check for any blockage , You can even try the above step with the vent hose disconnected to make sure that the dryer it self is properly venting ( feel for ALOT of air coming out of exhaust port ) .
If only a miniscule amount of air ( or none at all ) is coming out of the back of the unit you may have to call a technician to come in and clear out the internal duct work .
Hi. the mother board seems to be having some initialization issues during boot up. this is common when the mother board is failing. i would check to make sure the battery on this board is working. if it is, the board my be ruined. power board seems to be fine. please rate and god bless.
The tweeter is not the problem. The Eons use the vents below the tweeter to cool the amp and woofer. Sounds to me like you have a power supply problem in the amp, possibly a bad capacitor or diode. You have to check the amp for proper operation.
remove the side panel and have a look if your cpu fan is turning.... you may need to blow the dust and dirt out of it as well... if the tower even feels remotely warm that's likely the issue... also check the fan on the power supply. either way it will likely need to be cleaned
