Well you can do a conservative x clamp mod
on it .This will more than likely get your system
running again , but there's a catch . It may not
last long 2-3 months is average but some unit run
longer. It's quite simple actually. Strip the unit
down to the P.C. board . Remove both X clamps
and both heat sinks clean the chips and the
heat sink Put a thin coat of articsilver5 on
the chips . remove all the studs from both
heat sinks place the heat sinks back on and
line up the holes and get 8 10-32 x 3/8 pan head
Philips screws thread all the screws in evenly and
then tight (not to tight) put the unit back together
but leave the fan hanging out . place half the
fan over the large heatsink . Ready to cycle-
plug in the power and the audio/ video and power on
after 5 min the fan should be at full speed and 4-5 min more you should get 2 red lights -unplug after 10min weather you get 2 red or not . wait 15min
and reassemble your unit should be working . that's
it

Hope that helps . if you get 3 red and no fan before
you try to over heat , don't worry just back off
the screws in the G.P.U.'s heat sink.

This is not recommended for console that are under warranty

Screen reads,system error and has a trouble code of E 74 What could be the problem?


The Xbox 360 e74 error is a rather common problem on Xbox consoles, with similar roots to the now infamous red ring of death problem.
The e74 issue is actually caused by a problem with the scaler (ANA or HANA) chips located next to the graphics processor inside your Xbox 360.
It is believed that the error with the scaler video chip which causes the e74 error on your Xbox 360 is caused by overheating. This is also the cause of other errors such as the no video problem, as well as red lights in the power ring of an Xbox console.

To fix the Xbox 360 e74 code, there are a few steps you need to take-
1. Firstly, leave this article open, go to your Xbox 360 console and then remove the AV cable. Blow any dust out of it, then re-insert it snugly back into the console until a clicking is heard. Power on your console again and see if the problem has been fixed.
2. If that does not work, borrow another AV cable (get one off a friend or family member, or from your local video game rental shop) Try using this one in your Xbox 360.
3. If replacing the AV cable does not work, then you will have to repair the scaler chip and graphics processor inside your Xbox in order to fix the e74 problem. To do this, you will need an Xbox 360 repair guide, which will contain the video instruction files you need to be able to fix your console properly. You cannot fix the e74 yourself without one.
It is important to note that most Xbox repair guides focus on fixing the "red ring of death". However, the process for repairing the e74 will also be covered in the same guide as well, as it is extremely similar.

My 360 has e74 error and the 2ed code is 1022 and sometimes 1021 but i already did the x clamp mod and i modded and put a fan over the cpu


The cause of the E74 Error might be overheating of your console and for avoiding such error messages 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 the console such as cooling the machine through a pedestal fan etc. But as your Xbox already have E74 Problem, You can either send your Xbox to Microsoft for repair ( just for your information Microsoft is no longer providing Extended warranty for E74 Problem), Microsoft generally takes 3-4 weeks to fix the problem. If you can't wait for a month (I know most XBox gamers can not wait without their favourite Gaming device), You can also fix E74 Problem yourself and that too within an hour without any technical knowledge. I would suggest you to check out the DIY Xbox Fix Guide for more information......

Error e74


Try using a new AV lead as that could be at fault.
check the pins inside the AV plug and socket on the back of the xbox 360 console to make sure there are no bent pins.
if all that fails the video controller chip on the PCB will need to be resoldered or replaced, i think microsoft can fix this under their 3 year extended guarantee.

If you bought the 360 within 3 years ago, you will still have 3 year free warranty. Call Microsoft and they will help you solve and repair your Xbox no charge.
