Question about Microsoft Xbox 360 Console
How to fix red ring of death
The cause of E-74 with one red light Error might be overheating of your console and for
avoiding such error in future you need to put your machine at an open
space. Ensure that it is placed near the window or you can also make
some external arrangement for cooling of console such as cooling the
machine through a pedestal fan.

Either you can send your Xbox to Microsoft (Please note that microsoft is no longer providing extended warranty for E74 with one red light Error) and wait for 3-4 weeks. If you don't want to wait for a month, you can also fix E74 with one red light problem with the help of this DIY Video, the guide will explain step by step approach to fix the problem. Choice is yours.

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.

Free fixes? Impossible.
What causes the ROD is a loose processor. You can buy a better part and install it. I believe there should be a YouTube Video on this. There should be parts on eBay.
I hope this helped.

Well the why part of your question can be answered here - http://www.xbox.com/en-US/search.aspx?keyword=one+red+light
They go into many of the error codes, as to how to fix it without voiding the warranty; If it's under warranty send it in to be fixed, or if you're dying to play right now try the 'towel method' shown here -
Beware- purposefully overheating your xbox 360 may damage your system further.
Please rate my response :)

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...
