Ah, you need a Micro PSU. No problem, there's tons. Here:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...&name=MicroATX

Browse at you ease. Tigerdirect.ca is such hard to get an easy interface like Newegg. Those are the one you need. Any local shop can have one.

Pre-built small form factors use custom power supplies built by the manufacturer, so you'll need to talk to HP about getting it replaced, if its still under warranty they should just send a new one.

You may also have a propertiary motherboard, meaning your motherboard will not fit in an ATX case.

SFFC houses MATX PSUs usually. I can't really clarify with the one you have. Although, the brick shape makes me thing of a long, longer than ATX PSUs, but thinner.

I have an HP motherboard fit into a SFFC, but I don't know if the HP SFF motherboard will fit into another case.
