Well, my Xbox 360 finally conked out, apparently the one red light means that it has some kind of hardware failure that has nothing to do with the hard drive thank god.

I need advice on what to do with it now, I'm pretty sure its been more then one year since I bought it, and other then that its seems to have been slooooooowing down (load times, and such) in the weeks prior to its fatal occurrence.

Buy a new one from costco (with warranty if necessary), put your old one in the new box, take it back and tell them that the old one is the new one and it was broken, hold the cashier at gunpoint when he doesn't believe you, take the money and run.

Yesh, me too, I tried the wires, and I unplugged my hard drive as they said to on the support page.

I tried all you can do by yourself, and now I'm just going to go on this page and see what M$ can offer me.

Just call them and get them to send you a box so you can send it in to HQ and get it repaired for $100. Or risk breaking your xbox with a home repair kit (we tried that and broke our xbox, so be careful).

I'm not paying a cent for their phony baloney "make multiple lump sums on a single unit" schemes.

They clearly manufacture these devices specifically not to last forever.

Uhm, well, I just put it on a well ventilated surface, and then occasionally use it...

How can I stop CF from sending me an email every time someone posts in the thread that I did?

Good news everyone, if you have error #74, as of April of this year, it is covered under the red ring of death warranty (of 3 years), even if you only have one red light as they are both general hardware failures.

so if you didn't void your warranty buy preforming some daring xbox resurrection with much bravado, I would strongly urge you to send it back for replacement or for repairs.
