E68 = Turn off system, take hard drive off, put hard drive back on, turn system back on.

I don't know about E79

How do i fix x-box 360 e79 error permanently


Error code E79 on an Xbox 360 means you may have a faulty hard drive. This may be due to the hard drive not being connected correctly and can be fixed in a few steps. If, after following troubleshooting steps, the error does not resolve itself, you may need to purchase a new xbox 360 hard disk.

I was watching net flicks and my xbox rebooted and flashed a red ring (bottom right) and it said E68. i shut it off and started it up again and works<did that twice<the unit was alittle hot...


The e68 error on your Xbox 360 is caused by a hard drive/HDD problem. It can be caused by an internal connection error with the hard drive, a general failure of the hard drive, or overheating of the hard drive. Basically, there is quite a large range of things that can cause the Xbox 360 e68 problem, which can make troubleshooting the issue slightly difficult.

To fix the e68 code on your Xbox 360 is to remove the internal hard drive and try playing your console without it. If it then works, then you can be sure that you can permanently fix the problem. If not, then you will have more serious issues on your console that will need to be checked over by Microsoft, as the e68 is generally believed to be related only to your console's hard drive/HDD.

Hope this helps.

My xbox got one ring with error code E79 or E71


Well, E79 and E71 are different things.

The E79 is an error code representing a Hard Drive error. It could be the HDD itself or its a connection problem with the hard drive. Try playing your 360 without it and see what happens.

E71: possibly a dashboard update error, there is no solution at present the console must be sent back to MS for repair. Try resetting your console, or Power Off, remove the HDD if you have it. Reconnect the HDD.

Bought a new hard drive for the xbox 360 ,and after running the upgrade all I get when I turn it on is a system error and a red light flashing on the console


Take a look at the screen you should find a number for the error code there like E80 or E79.
If it is E80 this means that the update went wrong and that the consoles kernel wasnt flashed completely.
This can often be fixed with an NXE update recovery disc, search for it on Google, you can download it from Xbox.com.

If you are getting an error like E67, E68 ,E69, E79 or something similar it will be harddrive related very likely, disconnect the harddrive and try to power the console if the problem is gone get a harddrive replacement, call Xbox Support they will take care of that...

If you should be getting a different error code take a look at this error code list this will tell you whats causing this certain error and how it can be fixed: http://xbox-experts.com/e/errorcodes.php

I hope this helps.

Nooooo


Here is what I found for error code e79:
E79: Hard Drive Error... It could be a problem with the Hard Drive itself or a problem with the internal connection to the hard drive, Try removing the hard drive and playing without it.
According to tmbinc: E79 is the error code if xam.xex could not be started, i.e. probably a file system corruption.
You might want to get in touch with microsoft and see what they suggest to fix this problem.Here is a link to their support site:
