    Have you tried pulling your a/v cables and cleaning the ports or trying a friend's set?

    I believe that e74 is a graphics issue - cable or graphics processor.

    EDIT:
    I originally gave a link and an answer, but decided against supporting this kind of forum laziness.

    --------------------------------------------

    This took less than 8 seconds to answer using Google. In this day and age, there is absolutely no reason to ask a question like this when it takes even less work and time to find the answer you need. And this isn't aimed solely at the thread starter. This is aimed at every single person on this forum who does this over and over again.

    I'll just say this:

    Good luck dealing with Xbox Customer Support. But that's just my experience.

    I'm not saying it's not allowed as this forum and its members ca be a wealth of knowledge. But simply typing in "360 e74 error" in Google brought me directly to what the problem is. I don't mean to take it out on this thread or you. But it's just a growing trend where the answer can be found quickly and easily by using a search engine.

    When I sent my Xbox in they had excellent service. Clear and very helpful. 45 minutes after I got off the phone with them a UPS truck came and picked it up, and two days later I got it back and haven't had a problem since.

    I had a 360 and it red ringed. Had it for about a year. Had my wii for twice as long and no trouble for it and it's cheaper then a 360!

    Got rid of it and plan to get a ps3. It's like a car. If the same car brand brakes down all the time then why keep buying it when you can get one that won't brake down elsewere.

    360 has good games, crap hardware, makes you pay for stuff the wii and ps3 has for free and hates anyone who isn't paying to play games online. (the fact that folks diss out cash to do that just makes me laugh.)

    I liked 360 when i got it but got tired of all the crap they pulled.

    oh ok, seems like PS3 is the highly recommanded system~ i do have the systems but i mainly use it for the blue ray movie feature and a little bit of call of duty

    I bought the 360 is all because of halo 3...it does kinda suck to get a 360 cause now that the system is useless i have to find a way to get get rid of the 3 months card i bought for it...
