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.

Only way would be to open up the xbox 360, get the heatsinks off of the board and use a heatgun and reheat the two chips that are underneath the heatsinks that you take off.
Problem with the 360's is that they use crappy solder to put the video chips on the board and the solder underneath breaks apart after a while cause of the heat that is generated by the machine. Reheating the two video chips allows the solder to reflow properly and then you can turn on the machine and get video again.

just let it cool down,
two red light means that the internal temperature for the console just exceeded..
let it cooldown for a day..
when you use it, make sure there is no appliance near it...

depending on the age microsoft had extended the warranty of the 360 you will have to contact xbox and send your unit in to get repaired

I tried to follow some video tutorials from youtube but none of them worked. So I realised I'd have to spend some money on real tutorials and tools. I was a little sceptical but I bought it any way and it worked just fine.
Eventually you'll have to spend some money on it. I recommend you get your hands on this set, you'll get your guides and tolls and it's all you need to fix it at home.
