Sounds like a hardware problem. Turn off the Xbox and remove the hard drive, then turn it back on. If you get still get the message, or red ring, then it's not the hard drive. If that didn't work make sure the A/V cable is hooked in securely. If you have a different A/V cable try that one and see if you still get the message. If you do then it's a problem with the hardware and will need repaired. There are several DIY websites for repairing an Xbox but you will need some tools. Or you can contact microsoft and see if you can still get it repaired for free.

My xbox360 is reading e74 and my video was pixalating badly before the message came do i fix it

E74 is the scaler chip that deals with the display on your TV overheating. This will explain the graphics messing up.

All you need to do is stop the heat, you can do this yourself or you can send it in to be fixed.
