If you’ve been seeing the E74 error then you should know that it’s the equivalent of the RROD, but you probably already know that. It’s been a few months since I first saw this pop up on the Net and a quick perusal of YouTube dates the issue back to November of 2007. Like they did with the RROD fiasco, MS has issued a warranty extension for those afflicted with the E74 error that indicates “general hardware failure.” But don’t worry; once your Xbox is serviced it likely won’t happen again! Have any of you had the RROD of after having sent it in for repair in the last six months?
Oh, and if you paid to have your Xbox serviced for the e74 error then MS will reimburse you within 4-12 weeks.
As you were.
