Interface Type SATA 3 GB/s Spindle speed 7200 rpms Interface Class Serial ATA Capacity 120 GB...

Welcome to HP Support Forum. The following link shows specs of your computer:
It uses SATA II (or 3GB/s) HDD. Basically you can use any standard SATA II or III 3.5" HDD on the market today. Since machine is still running Windows XP, to be safe (due to old BIOS) please try HDD from 500GB down.
HP uses HDD's from few vendors, please try Seagate, Hitachi, Toshiba from the following list
(Note: check your region/country, they should stock those drives).
