Try to chech out the most suspected component such as capacitor, diods transistor and resistors that went bad. Unless U have 2 change the whole SMPS.

It is difficult (or impossible) to tell exactly what caused the transistors to go bad. Sometimes they just fail because they were a little weak, or other parts went bad first and caused the transistors to be damaged. Parts get weaker and values change over time and with use, and failures can happen. The UPS can't stop damage to the power supply if some part inside the supply goes bad, but it is still good to have one. New 450 to 500 watt power supplies can be purchased for $30 to $50 (or more).
