    Okay so.. My 360 will randomly display colored lines, distorted and covering the screen,
    Once I reboot it goes away until it comes back, randomly.

    I havent once gotten the Red Light E 74 error, or the screen saying the E 74 error.

    I'm not even sure if sending it into Microsoft for the 6 or 7th time will get anything fixed.



    Anyone have any idea what I should do? :?

    Have you opened a xbox before?

    If you have open it and heat up the gpu with a heat gun or hair dryer until it is hot enough where you can only touch for a few seconds.

    cool it down all the way and see if it worked...

    Or open it and break it permanently so they have to send you a replacement

    I believe it is.
    I had to cancel the last request because I believed it stopped.
    Which it didnt.

    And no, I don't feel comfortable opening this 360, Maybe my flashed one I have but not one that is still under warranty.

    Thanks for the quick response guys. :smile:

    Oh yeah, that's a good idea, send it in to some random guy on the internet, get my warranty voided and pay money rather than get it repaired/replaced by Microsoft for free.
