When someone say that his/her Xbox is having flashing red lights problem, It means it needs to be repaired. If you are using Cooler than it is not a cure but a prevention. You could have used cooler before acutally having the problem just to prevent your Xbox. But now you will have to either get it repaired from Microsoft (in case your Xbox's warranty is not expired, but one thing to note is that you will have to wait for at least 3-4 weeks to get back your Xbox) or you can Fix your Xbox's 3 Flashing red lights problem yourself with the help of DIY Video guide available on Internet. You can fix yourself without any technical knowledge.

When i plug my wirless xbox 360 internet adapter into my xbox it blinks red one time right when i plug it in then its just blank. wat am i doing wrong?

The adapter is bad it should turn on red and stay red until you set-up the wireless settings and then it will display green. If there is no light at all that usually mean the adapter has gone bad (I have had one go bad on me also). If by some chance you have some old routers laying around you should consider making your own wireless adapter/bridge by flashing dd-wrt ( onto both of them and setting one up as a bridge to connect your xbox too.

My kids xbox has two red lights flashing when turning it on. Unlike everybodys elses 2 red lights, ours have the bottom 2 flashing.

By bottom, do you mean as the console is laying down flat in the horizontal position? Two red lights in this position indicate overheating, however if this occurs on start up of the unit I is likely to be a voltage problem. Try the console in another room and ensure the washer/dryer and unused power is off, and try again.
Ultimately you may have to have the unit sent in for service if this does not solve the problem. As the infamous Ring of Light codes, (also know as ring of death/fire) are well recognized by Microsoft and all console warranty's have been extended.
You can call 18004MYXBOX and they will send you a container to transport your console back to them for repair.
Good luck

E73 error and one red ring in the lower right quadrent. AV power cord when unhooked- no red light- when reattached red light reappears.

1 red light is the display chip overheating and to fix it you need to stop the heat build up getting to the main chip to do this you need to send it in or use a good xbox 360 repair guide to fix it

Lower right quadrent blinking red

MS suggests power up the unit without the hard drive. Also, you'll want to disconnect all ports (USB, Controllers, etc). After you have powered up, turn it back off, and connect everything again.
