Question about Microsoft Xbox Console
E74 error code is caused by a memory storage device attached to the Xbox 360 encountering a hardware error. You can try to remove the HDD and restart the console without it, if the E74 code won't appear it means that you need a HDD replacement. But if it still does appear, there is a general hardware failure in the system and it might require servicing. You can contact MS Xbox Support for it to be fixed, out of warranty console will be charged $99 dollars by the way.. Cheers!

this might be a hardware failure. try turning it off then back, or try keeping a fan on it when you play on and if that doesn't work call 1800myxbox there you'll find step by step instructions to send it down to texas and get it fixed. if that happens three times you will recieve a brand new xbox 360 that has that problem fixed. also keep in mind to keep your hard drive before you send it to be fixed. i really hope this helps with your problem

SOURCE: xbox 360 e73 error?
Often this error is indicative of a problem with your ethernet port. It's been reported that shutting-down, unplugging console, removing the hard drive, power console on, then off again, re-attaching hard drive, and powering-on again will remedy the problem. This doesn't always fix the problem. Alot of times the 360 has to be repaired by Microsoft to be rid of this particular problem. That will cost you $150 and 6-8 weeks of down-time. For $50 dollars more you can buy a new arcade system and swap your hard drive into the new one.
