Replacement PSU for Dell Studio 540 MT

I have a Dell Studio 540 MT that is about 3 years old - all original parts. This morning, I touched the power button to start up and nothing happened. At all. After searching around a bunch, it seems likely that it is a PSU issue. Seems to be a common occurrence with this computer.

Can someone suggest a good PSU to replace with? I work on this computer, so it gets 40-50 hours of use each week. No gaming. But lots videos, music, photos, browsing, VPN, and generally plenty of applications running at any given time.

I appreciate your help. Also, in case it's the mobo, can someone suggest one of those?

Are you using the motherboard's Integrated Intel GMA X4500HD graphics or are you using an Optional Discrete PCI Express x16 graphics card?

If you're using an Optional Discrete PCI Express x16 graphics card please specify its make and model.

The Dell Studio 540 MT uses a standard ATX PS2 form factor power supply unit.
