@AlfredW28 , welcome to the Community.

 

The motherboard in your computer is HP proprietary. It has a 4-pin power connector instead of a standard 24-pin ATX power connector. You will have to buy any PSU upgrade from HP.  The most powerful PSU that HP has available is only 500W.  The RTX 3050 requires 550W and the RTX 3060 requires 600W.  Therefore, you won't be able to upgrade to either of them.
