Hello, welcome to Fixya!

Over heating maybe caused as a result of weak fan, ineffective heat sink, (dried thermal paste on the processor) or dust around the fan area in the system preventing free passage of air.
Also, where you keep your laptop when using it matters too. If you place your laptop on a foam, rug or too close to things preventing free passage of air may cause overheating.
You have to disassemble your laptop, and use a paint brush to remove every dust around the fan. Also, apply thermal paste on the processor to reduce the heat.
If you don't know how to disassemble your laptop, then you need someone to do that for you.

Take care.

My laptop shutdown suddenly, and I try to run the DELL Diagnostic there's an error "SMBIOS - Processor CPU Internal Temperature Critical. Service Tag # 37PHY1S How could I eliminate this problem

This is a sign that your laptop is overheating. If you touch the laptop while it is running & you find it too hot, make sure that the fan is running properly & that the air ways are not blocked.
You can blow compressed air into the cooling vents of the fan. If you notice clouds of dust coming out, then it might be a good idea to disassemble the laptop, clean the fan & air ways, & reassemble it back. If the fan has failed & is no longer running, it might need to be replaced.

When you disassemble the laptop, one thing worth doing is to check the thermal grease applied on the surface of the processor. Most probably it will have been dried up. In this case, clean it up carefully from both the processor's surface & the heat sink's lower surface, & re-apply fresh thermal grease. You can buy it online or at an electronics store.

New Problem after fixing Light Tunnel on a SP 4805

It sounds like you have mounted the replacement light tunnel incorrectly. It is a common error. What has happened is you have the light tunnel sitting on yop of the positioning stop which is opposite from the color wheel side. If you take it back apart you will see that it's not laying parallel to the casting. if you reposition it so it is just touching where the opening is in the clamp on the color wheel side you will feel it fall into place.
