Well, don't worry about getting the exact model by any means. About the only thing that matters is the number of pins on your mobo power connector (20 or 24). Skip around this problem with a PSU that has a 20+4 connector for both types. Beyond that, be sure it has enough wattage and stable power, and enough plugs. (All the plugs you really need are a couple molex, a 4-pin CPU, and some 3-pins.

TOTALLY FORGOT TO NOTE THIS: You will need to get a PSU with a matching form factor. Most are ATX, but you will have to check on your current PSU.

One thing to keep in mind is that some compaq's, HP's and Dell's are proprietary when it comes to certain models of their brand. A standard ATX psu that'll fit all ATX cases might not fit in a Compaq case, or it might fit but the mounting holes might not line up. Let me see if I can't find some links for you...

this machine uses a micro atx Mainboard, this case series from compaq uses an ATX 2.0 series power supply. I have worked on compaqs using this case, and they normally uses a bestec power supply. I have put many, many 350 ANTECs into this case

I have also installed bigger ones, up to 550 watts, and this also:
