You appear to have one of two problems.
1.  Power supply circuitry drawing too much current and shutting down. .
2.  Something wrong on your motherboard drawing too much current, 
     causing the power supply to shut down.

You can temporarily use another ATX (I assume) power supply
mounted outside your case and connected to your motherboard.

If it blows then the mother board is the problem, if not then your
HP power supply is faulty.
