    I have this xbox that has the lower right red light flashing and it has error E 74. It is still in warranty, but I want to try and fix it myself.


    It still has the microsoft seal on it. I can just use the hairdryer trick on it. If the thermal compund on the GPU doesn't work do you think if I put the seal back on the would still fix it.

    E74 is RARELY a overheating issue..... so the new thermal paste wont do much at all

    do you know for a fact that it is he GPU? because the E74 could also be the HANA chip or the AV cable. personally, mine was the the GPU and i just removed the old adhesive between the GPU and the heat sink and replaced it with Arctic Silver

    Just send it in. It's too much to risk trying to fix it yourself.
