There is the standard PSU guide, offered by HP. Follow each step.
Removal and replace guide: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docnam
After the tests (above) , if you suspect the power supply, then replace it. You need to find an exact replacement in physical size, and ATX plug, because this PSU is a Slimline and is alleged (by vendor) to use a miniature 24pin ATX plug. I have included a link, as a reference. You should shop it in the UK.
