This may be fixed for a short time by unplugging every cord from your xbox and leaving it for 30 min to an hour. tho this is only a workaround if it is under warranty i Highly recommend getting it replaced

An e 74 involves the GPU and will require soldering to truly fix and now there are a fuw things you can do one is to call Microsoft and get Assistance by phone

Sreen system error e 74


This problem occurs when the Xbox 360 console experiences a hardware failure. To verify that your console is displaying the E74 error message, follow these steps:
  1. Turn off the console.
  2. Turn on the console.
  3. Verify that your console displays the E74 error message.
If you are experiencing this problem, your Xbox 360 console must be repaired..... Microsoft covers repairs for the E74 error for a period of three (3) years from the original purchase date of the console. If you are outside the initial three-year warranty period, you can still receive console repair service from Microsoft for a fee for the E74 error.

I have the E 74 error how do i fix it?


Hi,

Basically, this problem is caused by overheating, which is often an issue with most high-powered electronic devices.
As heat levels rise inside your Xbox 360 the connection between the motherboard and the video scaler (HANA/ANA) chip is damaged due to the expansion and contraction of the metal connectors.
Once you have experienced the red ring of death e74 once on your Xbox 360, it will continue to happen over and over again until you fix the problem permanently.
The process of repairing the Xbox 360 red light e74 involves opening up your console, removing the hard drive and disk drive (as these get in the way when you are navigating around the narrow confines of the case) and then locating the video scaler chip.
You then remove it from its seating point and clean the connections; an eraser works well for this. It then has to be seated correctly back in its slot. Once this is done and the hard drive and disk drive are re-installed you can put the case back together.
When you turn your console on again it should be free of the e74 error.
Good Luck and have a nice day.

My xbox has E74 what do i do about getting it fixed, however it only shows one red ring in the bottom right of the circle when it is turned on, not three


The Error 74 means that your 360 is experiencing hardware failure. Only one red light should show up. You should send you 360 to Microsoft for a repair. If you are not under warranty you could fix it yourself, by doing the X clamp repair. But by opening your 360 it will void your warranty so be careful.

Hope this helps
