ashley, you should tell us which two:-) Sure, it is possible that it is overheating because of clogged air vents and/or a bad fan. I would most certainly start by cleaning it and reapplying new thermal paste to the processors. Most likely you do have the RROD and should consider to either install this RROD kit or to get the console reballed. Hope this helps, good luck.

It's unlikely that the overheating could be caused by any of the screws being too tight. Usually the two red lights errors are caused by the CPU overheating, the GPU overheater, or cold solder joints on the memory. In your case, it sounds like everything was overheating. Check and make sure your fans are working...if they are not, it will overheat quickly. After you verify that your fans are working, you can try re-flowing the motherboard to see if you can get it working again. Here's a good DIY on how to do that: Reflowing Xbox 360 Motherboard .
