    For and HP Computer. The power supply model is a Hipro HP-2537F3R and is 250W. I thought that just any ATX power supply would work but i talked to a local vendor and he told me that I have to find one that is specifically made for HP or Compaq Computers because of some kind of difference in Wiring. Is This true? He can get me one at a decent price, but its gonna take him about a week and i was hoping to get one sooner. So i wanted to see if there was anything compatable that i can get locally. Thanks.

    HP uses a small form factor psu as in all the ones I have replaced. They are ATX psu's but to get them to fit your case you may want to wait on the other guy as in if it does not work you can return it on their business for getting you the wrong part and not be stuck with something you can't use.

    Thanks a lot guys. I think i'm just going to wait for my vendor to find me an original replacement.

    I tried that and the model number wasn't in any of the lists. Thanks though.
