what causes the Yellow Light Of Death on a PS3?

It is a general error and can be one of many many things..
Most usually fatal.

Sounds like a hardware problem. More info:
Mine got it when trying to install MGS4 onto my HDD, my guess would be harddrive failure
Power surge can be possible cause of YLOD.
Also if the inside of your ps3 is very dusty it can cause this as 1 guy had this happen to him and he took apart ps3 and clean out all dust in all areas and his ps3 is now working again from YLOD.
This is just some things to look at as they might help you on this YLOD problem... a YLOD fix guide is attached below
