Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
First is the G.P.U. and or the C.P.U. has pulled /shifted
away from their heat sinks resulting in a hi fan speed in
1min or less and 2 reds.
The solution is to remove the heat sinks and clean off
the old thermal past and reapply new and put the x clamps
second is the temp feed line/connection on the G.P.U has become
intermittent and will need to be reconnected.
The solution ideally would be to have the G.P.U. re-flowed
but since you have no money like most of us ,you will
need to get creative. First try the replacing heatsink compound
with articsilver5 and if that does not fix it I'll advice you accordingly
on things to try before you use it for target practice.

Unfortunately there is nothing that you can directly do to fix this problem.
You have a hardware failure. Microsoft will repair your unit for you under warranty / recall.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

One red light signifies a major hardware failure or system error , depending on which hardware failure or system error it is depends on how the problem can be fixed but in some cases there is no easy recovery and the console must be repaired or replaced. Two means the console is overheating and must be switched off and left to cool. Three, the infamous 'Red Ring of Death', means a general hardware failure and the console must be sent to Microsoft for repairs. All four red lights simply means that the console cannot detect its AV cable.

SOURCE: e 75 error on xbox 360
I don't know if I answered this before but I have been having the same problem and this is what i've learned. 1st. thing I noticed was the heat sibk was not leveled; after I did the x-clamp fix. ( worked for about a hour. 2nd I replaced the k-patches located on the underside of the board. I replaced all 4 withe better ones I found on the net. It worked fine for about 4 hours. And finally I realized that I wasn't putting enough Arctic Silver paste on. Insted of putting it on the die I put it on the heat sink. Here's the problem when the chip gets hot there just wasn't enough heat transfer between the die and the heat sink. So the more past the nore heat transfer. Keep in mind all that was mentioned before nust be done to get rid of the E74 error. As far as my cosole I have gone 3 months with out a problem. If you don't know what die i'm talking about it's the one on the left under the heat sink if you was looking at the front of your console. Sorry for the long text. I hope this helps you.

I f your XBOX 360 has a 1 red flashing light error, you're more than likely in big trouble.

2 Red Rings = Overheating
Mostly all red flashing lights on the Xbox 360 rings are due to overheating in some way or other, but the 2 red rings singles out overheating as the main issue. When doing the X-Clamp fix the 2 red rings are required to fix the Xbox 360 by overheating the CPU. If you get this Xbox 360 error without doing the X-Clamp fix, you probably just need to let your Xbox 360 cool down for a few hours.
