Would I be able to upgrade from 310w psu (prebuilt) to 500w psu without anything breaking?

if hp offered a optional 500 watt supply using the same motherboard that is in your current system then you can safely use it without any problems
you need to confirm the motherboard part because HP sometimes uses diffrent motherboards in a series if you upgrade the cpu or video cards
your system uses a "sunflower" motherboard
HP sometimes uses non standard ATX pinouts on the power supplies, if you connect a AXT supply and get a no boot or power on then right off your system is using a custom supply
i do know that hp offers a 500 watt supply for some systems
last, be aware that installing a diffrent supply can invalidate your warranty on the system

as far as i know no ATX power supply adapter currently exists for this specific motherboard.
while one could be made as a custom adapter, the cost and time to locate someone willing to do this is not a cost efective endevor for most people. however if you have a local hackerspace near you then contact someone from there and ask them
also keep in mind that your case was made with specific thermals in mind and that adding a card that exceeds this will cause numerous problems
this hp series does come with a optional 500 watt supply that might be compatable with your motherboard

Well I got a 690-0067c,
Was struggle with the sunflower mainboard which is build for a non-upgraded HP pc, whatever it is I research and test with the PSU 500w from 790 model, it did work well with sunflower mainboard ( same connector cable), it fit in 690 small case, but I could only put 1 screw in to secure the PSU.
Beside the different design for the case, everything perfect. ... I still keep the 500w PSU for my 690 model, and upgrade it with a AMD 580 MSI 8GB (old model which is smaller than the popular 580 8GB now) ... everything run soo perfect ...
Here is the PSU part number in case anyone need it : L05757-800
Here is the link for MSI AMD 580 8GB can fit in small case HP pavilion gaming 690:
After struggle finding a upgrade PSU, I did it, it work, and now I want to share with you guys so badly. Although you might need a better fan to suck the hot air better, since the air harly circulate inside the case and AMD GPU is kinda hot when running
