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

E74 refers to an error with either the GPU or your av cable

first try switching out av cables if that doesnt work then send it back to microsoft for repairs

if you want to try to fix it yourself try this

Since your AV cable is good, then it definately is your Scaler chip. The only way that you can fix this is if you take your xbox360 apart and resolder the GPU to the motherboard. Now theres about 50 different tutorials out there on how to take your case apart but I found that this tutorial is the best... its straight forward and includes pictures:

http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/Xbox-360-Disassembly.htm

Okay, your xbox is apart. Next, your going to have to remove the x-clamps and GPU. Then you are going to have to resolder the GPU to the motherboard by overheating your GPU. llamma also has a really good write up on this as well. They also sell the tools that you will need, and the washers and bolts you will need.

http://www.llamma.com/xbox360/repair/ring_of_light_x-clamp_fix.htm

Once you've resoldered your GPU, then you might want to consider installing a CPU fan on your outside case to prevent your xbox from overheating in the future. As of now, you cannot buy the new GPU heatsinks which have the heatpipe technology, so this is the best thing to do for the voided xbox's.

What's happen to my ps 3? have error d5027


That error basically means your network connection to the PS3 network servers is unstable. Given the time of year and the number of kids that have snow days and are at home, and parents staying home working across the internet, the most likely cause is simple network congestion. You should notice this issue go away early morning when fewer people are online, and get worse as the day progresses. In some cases, you can set up a VPN or Virtual Private Network connection that can help. If you want to try that, go to this link http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Home-Support/Using-Virtual-Private-Network-VPN-To-Defeat-Network-Error-D50027/td-p/44868077 for instructions on setting it up.
