I want better power supply

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)


I want to know if I could upgrade my 180w PSU, to a 310w PSU that is in most other Hp Pavillions. I have NO IDEA WHY MY COMPUTER HAS 180W PSU. I really want to upgrade it to 310w PSU so that i can upgrade my GPU from a  gt1030 to a gtx1650. And if you could leave a link to somewhere i could buy the 310w PSU, that would be much appreciated, Also i am aware that i can't just stick any ATX PSU in because Hp have decided to use CRAPPY Proprietary Connectors.


Please help!


Thanks, pete

You can probably upgrade to a 400 watt power supply. Search the following part number on google, and you should find a replacement that will work for you: L04618-800.

While your opting for a GTX 1650, use caution. Some manufactured cards have a 6 pin PCIe power port.

There are now (2) 400W PSU, listed on the spreadsheet.


Very wise comment, as the 400W PSU do have a 6+2 PCIe power cable.
