Im sorry to hear that you have YLOD (Yellow Light Of Death)
it can be caused by overheating, where the cpu/gpu is seperating from the board.

Well you have 2 options :

1. if you still have warrenty i suggest you use it, and then send it to sony.

2. If no warrenty try this below, it does require tools, and some knowhow.
so be carefull if you wanna try this on your own.

if you dont feel like doing this on your own, then try search in google on "YLOD" and see if you can find any workshops near you, im sure there is, since this is a commen problem now a days.

4 beeps and no screen when i turn on my enovo desktop


One long beep followed by three short beeps means that either the video card isn't installed or the memory on the video card is bad. Reseating or replacing the video card will typically fix the cause of this Intel beep code.

Turns off in the middle of the game and the cosole light start beeping in red lights...any hints of tips?


This sounds like a processing error. It is not something you can easily fix yourself without prior experience. Try CPR in NYC. They usually have a 1-3 day turnaround time, and are pretty cost effective. You can easily ship them your unit. They are faster and cheaper than Sony.

Hope it helps!

If your computer is beeping at you, 9 times out of 10 its going to be an issue with the memory or video. (more often the memory) Try re-seating both. If your still hearing the beep fest, below is a list of the most common beeps and what they refer to. This will help you to find out what needs replacing.

Beeping before booting


probably the RAM. Take it out and put it back in to check. You will need some RAM to boot, so try each stick separately if you can. I'm guessing though that you'll have to get at least one other stick of RAM to check. You'll probably find that one is bad. It's probably covered for life, but that would be a good reason to upgrade it.
