What the balls is this E71 error?

So my Xbox likes to overheat and whenever I try to go to the dashboard or switch between games or pretty much DO ANYTHING, it gives me a black screen that tells me to contact customer support and identifies an E71 error code. Lo and behold, when I go and check out the website, THERE'S NO SIGN OF THE FRICKEN CODE. This has been happening since two months into having my Xbox, and I've had the damn thing for six! I got it on November 26th, 2010. *sighs*

I have the 250 gig slim. 

Please help me.

I am going to cry. :(

When it says contact customer support I think it means ring them.

I would Phone support for your region OP, there is a good chance your console may need a service/repair.

If you did not properly vetalate the console then yes its your fault but you can try getting it repaired... it should be under warrenty still. Did this happen after an update?

It stands on a shelf free from obstruction. How much can I fricken ventilate it, should I hang it from the ceiling?! This is ridiculous. But perhaps I leave it on too long. I don't remember, all I know is a few months ago I tried to go back to the dashboard and it crashed and showed an E71 error. I don't remember updating anything.
