Replacing Power Supply

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion 550-155l

Hello, I'm pretty new here. My PSU recently broken and I want more Watt in it. So, what PSU can I replace with. Or I need to buy new PC Case and PSU? (I'd like 550W PSU)

@CateatPC , welcome to the forum.

 

I believe that you should be able to use any standard uATX power supply unit (PSU).  The best way to know what will fit into the space provided is measure the existing PSU.  Here is one that may work for you:  https://www.newegg.com/corsair-tx-m-series-tx550m-550w/p/N82E16817139210?Description=atx%20550w%20po...

 

Read the Specifications section and the Reviews for the PSU.  If you have questions about it you can contact Corsair's Tech Support.

@CateatPC, I don't like to create confusion and show a different Form Factor from the Product Specifications.  The u is actually a way to denote micro-ATX and refers more to the motherboard.  However, if an ATX PSU will fit, use it.  This is why I state measure the current PSU.
