You can purchase an ATX PSU and upgrade it yourself or have it done at a local PC shop. I have never heard of HP offering a PSU upgrade.  Stick with top name PSU brands like OCZ, PC Power & Cooling or Corsair. The PSU should be an ATX12V v 2.2 or 2.3 /EPS12v v2 / EPS / 80 plus Bronze certified for best compatibility. I recommend a modular type as space inside an OEM HP case is rather limited. 450 Watts or better is recommended for PSU upgrades.

 

Many top brand PSUs are available at NewEGG as on this web page.
