Most UPS's have split power. One is for Surge protected which is probably the half still working. The other come from a switching device called a relay. The relay is on the circuit board inside. If the battery backup'd half is dead, then that relaying is not connecting the power source to the three outlets. It could be due to a defective control circuit or the relay is bad. If you dont know electronics, either buy a whole new unit, or send it in for a rebuild with a place that knows what they doing. The manufacturers approved service places charge a reasonable price, but wont tell you anything for DIYers. I found a place in western canada that services them and does correspond with tips...that worked. And the obvious warning, the insides of a UPS can kill you if you dont take proper precautions
It's not, It usually only require you to disconnect all connectors (Hard drive, motherboard, CD player) 4 screws out (around the fan grid), take out the power supply, then put the new one in place, put the 4 screws back and connect your new power supply to the same places, just be careful (don't touch the electronics component as you could damage them with static electricity) and it's a piece of cake
there may be several reasons as to why your puter is doing this. lets do some basic checks to try to get past this safe startup and into a regular startup.
1. ensure your power supply is good. many times a brown out or surge may cause a default as you have. this is done by doing common sense things as ensuring the power cord is completely plugged in at the power supply and into the back of the unit. (a simple loose connection will kick up this window u mentioned). ensure all connections to your cpu unit are secure as well as the wall power supply if you have a ups take it off line....for this
2. if you are able disassemble the unit (cpu) and ensure all cards are properly seated or if you in the recent past have installed a new item (video card, memory, or ect) you can reseat it or remove it. also. take necessary precautions.
3. software- if all the above items dont do it for you. your issue may be software. as mentioned above you can do a soft reset. first set the bios to default. if problem isnt fixed go to windows xp bios for the soft reset. this will attempt to repair drivers ect on windows and usually dosent affect files.
4. hard reset- this will erase all data currently on ur system. hard decision but you can do it. do you have dual hard disk drive. c and a D or other letter identifes second drive. this probably the last resort you want to take especially if you want old files. keep in mine however there are programs out there that will scan your hard drives for old files and they can sometimes be recovered. do the homework..on someone elses computer...bad joke.
anyway this is a simple approach and i hope your experience with ends up as a good one.
Did your WD 500 come with software? If so have you installed the software? Does windows see the new external hard drive under my computer? You can always drop and drag files and folders directly to your new hard drive. What operating system are you using? Please answer questions and then we will go from there.
