What does the system error say? The more information you provide, the more likely it is that someone here will have the answer to help you.

the for writing back it says, System Error.Contact Xbox Customer Support. The it has this in about 8 different languages!!

Then at the bottom it says E 74,

The E74 is a hardware error and I'm afraid it means that you are going to need to send it to be repaired

Here is the direct link to set-up a repair request


If the console is under 12 months old you could try returning it to the store you bought it from.

That page should have the information you need about the E 74 error.  Long story short, your console is broken and will need to be repaired (probably).


edit-  Yeah, what DC said.
