PS3 Crashing

I'm having a problem with my PS3, 

 

Every time I try and play a game, watch a dvd/blu-ray or try and watch something on my external hard drive my system crashes - First of all it freezes, then an orange light comes on, then the red light blinks. I can however restart it, unlike when my previous PS3 did the same thing and shuffled the mortal coil. Has this happened to anyone else and how can I stop it? 

 

I'm missing my mammoth COD4 sessions.

Thanks in advance.

It sounds like it's borked chief, is it still under warranty?

No, they said it was covered for 3 months. At least it hasn't eaten any of my games this time.

You could try the hairdryer trick, it might give you enough time to grab your game saves and deactivate the console.
