Question about Microsoft Video Game Consoles & Games
This is primarily due to an overheating issue that has caused permanent damage to your Xbox. It is a very well known problem and something Microsoft have been aware of for a very long time. It became such a problem that they extended the warranty on Xbox 360's to 3 years for this particular problem. The first step you need to take is to look at the manufacturer date on the back of the Xbox. If it is within 3 years, please call Xbox support who will arrange for a replacement to be sent to you after you have sent your faulty Xbox back. If it is out of warranty you can think about repairing it yourself but this is not always 100% guaranteed to work. Once you get the E 74 error you will never 100% get rid of it, just temporarily "put it off". If you google "Xbox 360 reflow" you will find plenty of guides on how you can repair it yourself but please please please remember this is electrical equipment, do not attempt to repair it if you are not comfortable to do so.
