I was playing Red Dead Redemtion and the screen went out and said to go to this website and at the bottom it had a E 74


You have the E 74 error, which means that your Xbox 360 is broken. You will have to send it to Microsoft to have them fix it. Is it still under warranty?

If your xbox is still under warranty, call 1-800-4my-xbox to have it serviced. It is a problem realted to the video card inside the xbox. This error is covered by microsoft for three years from the inital purchase date of the xbox. If you are out of warranty you may want to attempt a repair yourself.

This may be fixed for a short time by unplugging every cord from your xbox and leaving it for 30 min to an hour. tho this is only a workaround if it is under warranty i Highly recommend getting it replaced

I Just dont know!!!!!!!


E74 is an AV cable error/ GPU hardware failure error. If you left your system on all night and all day there is a very good chance you overheated it. If you have a warranty i would use it If not call MS to see if there Manufacturing warranty will cover it. Just tell them that you have E74 error and then youll have to give them the S/N off the Xbox and they will let you know if it will cost you anything. You can look up this error on
