psu adapter, will it work?

still kinda a noob to pc builds/mods. i posted a few times on a few sites and know one could help with upgrading my hp slim 6000 pro..... i noticed when i took the mobo out today for a fan upgrade there was 2 series of pins on it beside the factory psu hookups it looks like micro atx but im not sure still new to this.. i would really like to upgrade my psu so i can properly power my graphics card and any future upgrades

hp slim 6000 pro 3.06ghz duo core
4gb ram(upgrading to 8 if this works
240w factory psu
1-250gb sata 3.5" hdd, 1-250gb 2.5" sata hdd
dvd burner (upgrading to bluray if this works)
msi radon 6450 (couldent do better because psu this is already under power from what overclocking program shows)

That's a proprietary power supply.
Notice those 3 output connectors....that's not standard.
Best you can do is call HP and see if they have an upgrade.
Don't hold your breath.
