Re: POWER SUPPLY FOR pc
The simplest would be to connect the power supply to a motherboard since this is where the on/off switch is also connected. The power supply needs to be triggered on before it will operate. Plugging in power from the mains is not enough.
Alternately in most PC power supplies, you can try force triggering to turn it on with just your fan and lights connected. This is done by shorting the Green (or Gray in some) wire to the GND (black) wire on the biggest connector.
In most modern power supply designs, it needs a load across the +5V rail
(latch on) to operate otherwise it will power on but then immediately switch off
when it senses that there is no load connected. Sometimes this can be defeated by shorting the Orange (Power Good) wire to the Red (+5) wire.
A word of caution, some old Dell power supply as well as a few other brands do not follow the standard wiring color coding
Hope that this be of some help/idea. Pls post back how things worked out or should you need additional information.

A good PC power supply has "power factor correction" and brings the power factor to nearly 1.0.
A 1000VA UPS can support 900V or more load.
A cheaper PC power supply without "power factor correction" will draw more current. A 1000VA UPS can only support about 600W load.
Usually you diagnose these by process of elimination. Get down to the bare bone mobo without anything but the processor, good RAM (switch out if you can with different ones), and Power Supply. Eliminate everything else, no cd, no floppy, no hdd, no video cards, no sound cards, no cards at all really.
More than likely it's a bad power supply. Take the power supply to your local computer shop and they should test it for you for free... don't let them charge you for it. If it's good then test the cpu.
A four second transfer time is way too long by at least an order of magnitude. There is no way the power supply in a PC can maintain for that long a time.
If you are in a real critical environment I would recommend going to a UPS which runs continuously and runs off a battery which is charged whenever utility power is available. That way there is no transfer time.
These offline units are harder to find however.
It sounds like you have a computer with an Active PFC (Power Factor Correction) Power Supply.
Back-UPS units, when running on battery power, output a Modulated / Stepped Sign Wave. Active PFC Power Supplies are NOT compatible with this pseudo-sign wave power, which is the reason it will not stay running.
You need a Smart-UPS unit, capable of delivering a true sign wave when on battery output.
Is it old or screwed up? the fan that cools the CPU (processor) could be broken and it just gets really hot and it turns off the make sure your computer is not fryed take it to some compouter guy that knows what theyre doing and have then check on it
sounds like you have too many devices plugged in, it's not the ups that's failing it's the amount of power it takes to keep all you devices running. you may want to buy a larger ups or you can unplug some of the devices you don't need in the event of power outage. if it's just your pc your power supply might be sucking up alot of juice, i'd check and see what the power consumption rate is on that particular power supply.
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
COMPLETELY unplug your computer before attempting this:
You need to remove the computer casing, usually there are screws in the rear of the unit, or some units have the sides that slide off.... Get a can of Air, and some cue-tips, and clean out your fan for both the power supply, your processor, and any other fan inside of the unit... Get rid of all that dust. This should be done maybe once every few months at least. Yes, get rid of ALL the dust... be sure to be careful while doing this, do not want u to damage the computer>.<
There's more if that doesnt work, but I'm not sure how technically sound you are, so I don't want to throw too much at you all at once :-) Lemme kno if that works.
