Default Halp?

Well, my boyfriend's computer's power supply blew out, and he doesn't really have a way to look this kind of stuff up, so I'm trying to see if I can do it for him. I have absolutely no earthly idea how to fix a computer, so I'm just relaying all the info I can find to him by phone right now.

His blown power supply is a Turbolink LC-A420ATX 420W Switching Power Supply. I don't know if it's replacable or what, but it seems as if nobody currently walking the planet has one and is selling it. I was wondering if it could be replaceable by something else, or if there's anywhere I could go to find one.

Any help would be appreciated! I'd be grateful for any info anyone could throw at me, please.

Any power supply can be replaced with another brand, they all have to provide the same thing. The one thing is though, there is a chance his old power supply took out his motherboard or other components. I think this PSU should be just fine in his system.
