I have been trying to found out for the past couple of days how to fix this also. Most of what I found on the internet said that basically youre screwed if you get this, I went ahead and did the x-clamp mod and replace the thermal paste. Worked perfect for me, until I put the case back together. e-74 showed back up. After I repeated the process of getting it to start working again and it quitting when I tried to put the casing back, I just decided to leave the casing off that way if you do get the e-74 message again its an easy fix. At that point Ive been disconnecting the fan until it gives me 2 overheating lights. Thats when I unplug it from the wall reconnect the fan and its works fine until I try to put the casing back on.
I like to tinker with this stuff and am by no means a electronic repair guy, but the x-clamp mod is easy to do and runs about $16 and a hr or so to do.
You can email me back if you want the links of any more info.

Re: Your X-box problem
Hey there the way i fixed mine is you know you have the x-clamp right and when you take it out seems kind of loose... you get me. Well what i did was to add washers (#4 washers or #6 washers from home depot) just added them and wha-la. My 360 has been up and running like new. its so simple

Sounds like something on the Xbox is causing the update to fail. Make sure you have plenty of room left on the hard drive for temporary update files. Also check in the Memory section of the settings if there are any previous downloads which did not complete correctly. If there are, remove them.
I just found this at the teamxbox forums (credit to the original author):
Turn off the system and the controller. Then while everything is off, press and hold the sync button on the controller, then press the power button on the controller to start up the system, continue holding the sync button until the dashboard comes up. If I'm not mistaken, that should delete the failed update, assuming it actually was a failed update. Then just restart everything and do the update again.
hear this, seems you may need to have the motherboard fixed, do to this you
need to take the xbox360 apart then reflow the board. there is a
great 6part video guide on YouTube to view for free. 6 videos from the same
fellow, each video is a few mins long, and goes over everything for you.
http://www.youtube.com/user/ohiocitysales#p/uand its free unlike some eBook site. I actually
used the same method to fix over 450 Xbox360 units with no problems at all,
barring a few (but i have done nearly 500 so you expect a few problems along
the way), you just need a few things though like a heat gun and some thermal
paste. sounds hard, but it's very easy once you start! Hope this
helps in some way.

YOUR ROUTER CAME WITH FEATURES, LIKE FIREWALL, AND A COUPLE THAT ARE DESIGNATED BY LETTERS, ALL OF THESE ARE NOT OPEN SETTINGS, YOU MUST, RESET YOUR ROUTER BUT NOT THE SAME WAY YOU RESET IT EVERY DAY TO PREVENT HACKERS SLOWDOWN. YOU MUST LEAVE THE UNIT ON TO DO THIS, ROUTER ON THAN PUSH THE RESET BUTTON ON THE BACK OR BOTTOM OF THE ROUTER FOR MORE THAN THREE SECONDS. THIS WILL START THE NEW PASSWORD AND NEW ID PROCESS, REMEMBER TO NOT SELECT ANY OF THE FEATURES OF THE ROUTER. VIRUSES ARE USAULLY BIG PROGRAMS AND CAN'T GET TO YOUR COMPUTE IF YOU HAVE THE INTERNET SPEED LIMITED TO ABOUT 10KB PER SECOND TRANSFER, THATS WHAT THOSE FEATURES DO LIMIT SPEED. THE 360 REQUIRES OVER 1000KB TRANSFER CAPABILITY THAN WILL ONLY WORK IF YOU HAVE 500MB DOWN LOAD 546KB UPLOAD AND LESS THAN 60 PING. YOU CAN FIND WHAT YOU HAVE AT SPEEDTEST.NET CKICK ON THE GOLD STAR AND YOU'LL GET YOU SPEEDS. ONCE YOUR ROUTER IS SET RIGHT AND YOU STILL GET THIS MESSAGE, IGNORE IT IT JUST MEANS YOU HAVE WEEK INTERNET. HAPPY GAMING AND HOPE TO SEE YOU IN GEARS OF WAR TWO...
