Towel trick can force the RROD and then you can have the 3 year warranty cover it. Where did you get your system?

im using the cables that came with the 360
i threw a towel on the 360 for an hr to get it really hot and then i turned it on and it didnt work and i turn it off and on a few times and the 4th or 5th time it worked, no more black screen with the e74 error but the screen was all scrabbled and f up so i turn it off and on again and it went back to the one red light
i did this cause i saw a forum that the e74 is when its cold and the guy overheated his 360 up, and it worked again. the fans were really loud tho i just want it to play till ms sends over the box and i shipp it away im having bad cravings for gta4 rite now and am really down rite now =(

Ah yes trying to figure out how to fix a broken system. Takes me back to the PS2 days when I couldn't get disks to read and would try everything to get it to work until one day I literally threw it against the wall. Fun times indeed. :up:
