You have a major failure on the motherboard. If it was your hard drive the system will boot up, but freeze on the main screen and you will hear clicking coming out of the hard drive. Red and Green flashing lights means there is a problem on the motherboard. Sometimes you can fix the problem by reflashing the Bios on the main motherboard.

I have had this same problem with several power inverters over time. The problem is usually one of three things.
Those starting with the simplest.
1. Too much current being drawn on the inverter.
Solution (Check appliances that are plugged in and make sure they are not drawing more than 1200 watts. If they are unplug the appliance that is using the most current and get an inverter that is more suited to your power needs.)
2. Some power inverters have fuses built on to them. Sometimes multiple fuses. Sometimes, one fuse may burn out leaving one intact. When this happens even small items draw too much current and over load the inverter.
Solution (Replace the fuses)
3. Improper installation. Inverters draw a lot of current. You must use the propper wire size for the inverter. I would recomend at least an eight guage wire directly fused and hooked directly to the battery. Of course like with all things the bigger the wire the better the flow of electricity.
If it is not one of those things stop into a truck stop electronics shop and have the person diagnose it.
Hope that helps.

Buy a different brand of inverter. Yours has developed a short which the protection circuit is catching. It then tries a restart but fails all over again. Most likely o/p short which looks like an overload to the inverter.

You need to run recalibration on the unit. The supplied PowerChute software & cable will allow you to do this if you hook the UPS up to a PC (I know it works with the serial cable, not sure about USB). If you only have a MAC then I cannot offer a solution other than to buy the standalone PowerView device from APC. It will cost a bit more than a battery, but may save you from buying needless batteries in the future. I finally broke down an bought one, but note that I was still having the problem after the 1st recalibration. By trial and error (and maybe a vague memory) I put my MAC in sleep mode, that dropped the load to stop the lights from flashing. Then I recalibrated with a 22% load and now it finally seems better (lights no longer flashing). This was with a Smart-UPS 1000.
Let me know if that helps.
