Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
I took apart the xbox and tried heating it, like rebooting the system because I had one ring in the bottom left corner. I thought it was E-74. Now I have a red ring in the top left corner and I know it's top right whenever I try to turn it on.

The cause of E-74 with one red light Error might be overheating of your console and for
avoiding such error in future you need to put your machine at an open
space. Ensure that it is placed near the window or you can also make
some external arrangement for cooling of console such as cooling the
machine through a pedestal fan.

The 2 flashing red lights may indicate that there is a hardware problem with
your Xbox 360 console. The main thing that causes the 2 red lights to start
flashing is because of overheating and as the motherboard within the console
takes more heat it actually warps and bends until the solders become
Once this happens you will receive the 2 red lights. Even before you get the 2 red lights you may have noticed your games freezing and this is caused in the same way, by overheating. As the chips take more heat they shut off to prevent lasting damage, although they can only do this a number of times until you get the Xbox 360 2 Red Lights.
To fix the problem you need to stop the level of heat the motherboard takes and you can do this in a number of ways, but it will involve opening up your Xbox and working on it. In addition, you could always send your Xbox back to Microsoft as they are offering free repair for this error, you will just need to wait 3-4 weeks that's all.
