Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
When I turn on my Xbox an error 68 shows
I contacted Microsoft explaining your issue and they replied saying that error 68 means that there is a hard drive failure. You will have to send your xbox in, but if you are under warranty you won't have any problems. Also something you can try is take your hard drive off and see if it will play.
The failure is not always as big as you think, it can be fixed at home.
If you don't want to send it away or it's not under warranty anymore you can try the following.
1: If you have a computer with sata cables.
Remove your hard drive and plug it into an extra sata cable and boot your computer just to see if the damage is serious. It will display in your My Computer. If it does not display in your My Computer go to Start type 'Computer Manager' go to storage > Disk Managment
if the damage is repairable your Hard Drive will be Displayed there but then it will be 'Offline' or a 'Dynamic Disk'.
If OFFLINE click left and select ONLINE.
If DYNAMIC click left and select CONVERT TO BASIC.
Now you can re-insert into your console.
2: You can also remove it and tap it very lightly against a surface(sometimes the disk just get stuck).
If you still stuck email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
and i will guide you step by step with other solutions.
Please rate me.

SOURCE: Corrupted profile on XBox 360
I have heared that if you just delete the profile, just the profile, everything will be just fine (note: This only works if your profile is on xbox live).
Just go to memor, then go into the saving device the corrupted profile is on. Then "click" on the botton that says profile and delete the corrupted profile. Remember; the profile will be a small save and not taking up most of your harddrive, look for something with MB size, not GB size. When you have done this, go to "recover gamertag" and do so for the profile you just deleted. After all this, your game saves and achivements should be present and working.

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, This can also be caused by a Hard Drive Eprom Error.

The E68 is a weird error. Its normally from a hard drive failure. The underground xbox 360 scene says
THe E68 is a Hard Drive Error. The Hard drive is not properly configured: 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.
If the xbox can play without the hard drive then this error can be caused by a problem with the fans that make them draw too much power, it can also be caused if you have unnecessary accessories attached to the console like an external fan unit. Attempt to remove unnecessary accessories first, and then necessary components such as the hard drive and USB devices.
If its the hard drive or your console causing the problems contact Microsoft they will probably fix your hard drive and maybe recover your game saves. On the newest games that info is stored on xbox live.
