The E74 error indicates there is a hardware problem with your Xbox.

Microsoft's warranty will cover the repair cost for this type of error message for 1 year from the date you first purchased your Xbox.

If your console is out of warranty, you can go to www.xbox.com , login using your Windows Live ID by clicking the sign in link in the upper right hand side of the screen.

Next, Click on the "Support" link then again on "Hardware" under Select Your Support Category.

Scroll down toward the bottom of the page until you see "Console Management" on the left hand side of the screen. From this point, you can register your Xbox if it hasn't already been registered or submit a repair order.

If you submit a repair order and your console is out of warranty, the repair cost will be $99.00 otherwise it is free.

You other option is to call Microsoft at 1 800 469 9269 and say the word "Agent" when the recording starts. If you choose this method and your console is out of warranty, the repair cost will be $120.00.

Overtime and much use the Xbox 360does not cool properly and begins to overheat. The Ring of Death isyour system warning you that the Xbox has become too hot and locks up.With time the problem only becomes worse to the point that if not fixedwhen first noticed can crash your Xbox 360.

The first thing that you can try is to unplug the AV cable and blowout any dust that may be built up in the connections. Then try hookingit back up and turning it on.If you are still facing the errorthan try getting a new AV cable, or you can borrow one from a friend sothat you don't buy a new cable if this is not the solution either. Onceyou have the new AV cable, plug it in, fire up your Xbox 360

If this didnt fix the error i have found a good clip for fixing xbox360 with e 74 system message <url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0katvvV3ric>Here<</url> it is.

KEEP GETTING E74 ON MY XBOX360 TRIED RESETTING COMPUTER WORKS FOR ONE HOUR THEN GRAPHICS DISTORT THEN RED LIGHT THEN MESSAGE E74 HAD CONSOLE FOUR FIVE YEARS


Sounds like a hardware problem. Turn off the Xbox and remove the hard drive, then turn it back on. If you get still get the message, or red ring, then it's not the hard drive. If that didn't work make sure the A/V cable is hooked in securely. If you have a different A/V cable try that one and see if you still get the message. If you do then it's a problem with the hardware and will need repaired. There are several DIY websites for repairing an Xbox but you will need some tools. Or you can contact microsoft and see if you can still get it repaired for free.

What is the error E74 on the Xbox360? what should i do?


My Xbox 360 has a similar E74 error. It can mean a lot of different things, but it's usually a hard drive issue. If you're lucky, that's what it will be for you too. Follow these steps for a possible fix:
  1. With everything plugged in and ready to go, remove the video cable from your Xbox 360.
  2. Turn your Xbox 360 on. It should start flashing red lights indicating that there's a video problem.
  3. Count slowly to 10. After 10 seconds, plug the video cable back in.
  4. Cross your fingers.
If this works, all you should have to do is follow this process every single time you turn your 360 on. It's a bummer, but it happens when parts age. If this doesn't work, try removing your hard drive completely (assuming you can). If that's all that will fix it, you'll need a new Xbox 360 hard drive... this could however still be covered by warranty if you're lucky!

E74 on screen


This error should also be accompanied with a red light in the #4 controller at the ring around the power button.

There are a few reasons for this code to trigger, the only fixable one by you is the AV cord. Check it to make sure it is all fine and connected properly. I would also try borrowing a friends to test out.

If this is a no-go, the error is covered by Microsoft's 3 year warranty. Call them to get a replacement if you have not modded or opened your console up.
