It's very unlikely to be a power supply problem. You'll want to make sure that the vents aren't clogged with debris...if there isn't enough airflow it can cause overheating. If it's pretty clean then you can try replacing the thermal paste. These are the first things to check. If neither of those are the problem then you may have a problem with the APU or the connections between the APU and motherboard.

I hope this helps! Good luck

Thank you for quick replay. If the vents are clogged with depris what is the action that i need to do including clean it,.? Second thaing That means not possible of power supplay damaged and motherboard .? Third can you told me what is APU .؟ Thank you


You would need to get some type of brush or like a toothbrush and brush everything away from the vents...you can probably use a vacuum to get a lot of it as well.

It's highly unlikely that there is any power supply damage. The motherboard is probably OK (other than maybe the APU) since the console will turn itself off in the event of overheating.

The APU is the CPU+GPU all in one chip. It's the largest chip on the motherboard.


How i can fix APU.?

Thank you for helping me


The APU is not replaceable. If there are just some bad connections between the APU and motherboard then that is sometimes fixable but not always.


What is your suggestion in this case .?

thank you bro ,
