Title:

Is there only one cause of the ylod

Text:

i was doing a search for what causes the ylod and i found a web site http://boardsus.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-3-General/PS3-Yellow-lights-of-death-fix-it-worked-on-mine/m-p/39163155/page/2

in case you have trouble finding it the site says that this person had the ylod right after a firmware update and they said they took the hard drive out and made it a slave on another computer and formatted it then re installed it and did a firmware update and that fixed it. so then i came to this site and the manual here says it's basically the same problem the xbox has. so i was wondering if anyone could tell me if this is either a more plausible cause of the ylod or if you know if it's another cause or if it's not plausible at all? any help would be appreciated. thanks.
