    Step one: Start by taking your X-Clamps off, it may take a bit and make sure you don't scratch the motherboard (Big Green Board).

    Step two: Once you get X-Clamps off begin unscrewing the heat sinks screws, then go to Home Depot or some store like that and buy bolts that have the same screw diameter. (.5 8x10 size screws/bolts).

    Step three: Then screw your new bolts in the other side of the motherboard into the heat sinks (make sure you put the heat sinks in their right spot), Make sure they are tight but not too tight.


    Step four: Then start by putting the board back in and plug A/V cable and power cord up, and plug your disk drive up and your power button board whatever you call it and MAKE SURE YOUR FAN IS UNPLUGGED OR ITS POINTLESS TO DO THIS.

    Step five: Then once you turn it on it should have one red light (thats good) then leave it on till there are two red lights, once that happens let it cool and it should work like a charm

    (If you need any other help or questions please pm me and i would be glad to help)

    -Thanks

    This should fix it for about 1/2 year to a year but permanently fixing it? You probably cant do that but this is the closest thing i have seen to permanently fixed unless you send it to Microsoft yourself idk....

    This doesnt fix E74, mainly because the problem isnt the GPU or CPU seperating from the mobo, its the HANA (scaler) chip being loose.

    E74 is 95% of the time a HANA or scaler chip problem, NOT the GPU as you said... so your tut may work once but only if your lucky.
