Possible with the Xbox ps (based on the specs you give).

But why are you getting an error from your converted PC power supply. If you did the conversion correctly you should be getting 12 volts from it. Are you attempting to pull too much current. Have you measured the current and voltage (easy to do with a wattmeter)?

You have to put a load on the 3 or 5v side (someone help me i forgot) to get steady voltage from the 12v leads. I've always used a car tailight bulb and never had a problem. Ignore if you've taken care of this already.

i havent put a taillight bulb...i just mad the graound and positive side to a bolt so its like a car batt also w/an on and off switch
so i should just check the output with my multimeter and see how much V im getting..
im not good with electrics at all im selftought and its a bit hard for me t get but im trying...
with the x360 i use the multimeter to find the 12V supply and ground then id use whichever conn id like...???

if anybody knows of something easier...
