Question about Computers & Internet
How old is it? Have you contacted the manufacturer? The user manual will often help you define the beeps.
Personally I bet more then just the surge circuit was damaged.

To figure out what's wrong with the UPS, first you have to do a few things.
When calculating the rating a UPS can handle, it's voltage x amperage. If it's Watts multiply the number by 1.67 to give the rating of the device.
Add up all the devices (use the power supply rating in the computer) as well as any other device, and add them up.
If this rating was exceeded, then you have overloaded the UPS. If it was too long that you did this, then you wore out the battery.
When a UPS beeps even when not connected, that means the battery is very weak.
If the battery is more than 3 years old, it will need to be changed. If the online tests of the unit were done and the battery doesn't need replacing, then other parts of the UPS need fixing.
Check the battery.

it is possible the bypass alarm is flashing because the i/p and o/p are not within range to switch without a break.
they need to be nearly equal in volts and freq so when the ups switches the ups o/p is continuous.
you should be able to check this with your ups software.

you may have to many things plugged into the ups, it is not good to plug a power bar into one of the outlets of one of these as you are OVERLOADING the device with more power than it can produce
