Question about UPS Battery Backup Systems

1 Answer


I bought a new Acer 17 " Flat monitor to use with a 5 year old Dell Dimension 8250 Intel Pentium 4 Processor and when I hook it up all I get is a blank screen. I have a 64MB GeForce4 MX Graphics Card with TV-Out...I was told it should work if I have the same blue VGA video cable and I did but nothing comes up on the screen. I can hear Windows XP trying to open up on the speakers bu the screen doesn't show anything except white? What is my problem?

Re: New LCD ACER 17

It sounds like it is a settings issue in Windows, you should be able to fix it by following this order:
Go to your Start Menu>Control Panel>Display>Settings>Advanced

Click on: "GEForce Go XXXX" and on nView Display Mode change from Single Display to either "Clone" or "Dualview"

Than click apply and that should fix your problem.

If that doesn't work, than download the Acer Driver with the for Windows XP if your monitor is certified for vista.

This is a common issue with vista,
Hope this helps!

What is the latest computer on the retail market?

The best processor on the market right now is the Intel core I7. If your looking for a new computer, an I7 or an I5 would probably work best for you if you want it to last. If your looking for a gaming computer, try to get one with a graphics card that is at least an Nvidia 460 or an ATI 6770.

I have an APC XS1300. One year old. Very few

Mines, two or three years old and doing the exact same thing, you ever figure out what happen or how to fix it? I took the battery out and it reads 16 volts. I put a 2 amp load (fan) on it and it pulls fine, so I'm reluctant to buy a new battery pack for it now.

The battery backup is beeping intermittently, but the power is not fluctuating. Does the battery backup require a new battery???

If it's more than 3-4 years old chances are the batteries need replacement. Typical lifespans are 3-5 years on most batteries.

Has started to beep whenever items plugged into

If it's more than 3 years old, you probably need new batteries.

If the beep started after plugging anything additional into the UPS, you may be in an overload state, and the beep is telling you that it's choosing to beep and not function as intended rather than smoking itself. Try unplugging a piece or two from it and see if the beep goes away. If not, probably just you're batteries giving out due to old age, they'll only give you 3-5 years.

Battery side of UPS beeps on and off when turn on.

How old are your batteries? If they are over 3 years old it may be telling you that its time to get new batteries. You can check these using a voltmeter too to help determine if the batteries are the problem. You can find replacements at

Warning sound come on

Most if not all units come with a one year warranty. If you bought yours used check the serial number with APC to see if your unit is under warranty. If it is they will send you a new or refurbished one. They have decent customer service and ship pretty fast. Is that warning noise illuminating the replace battery led? If so you may need a new battery especially if it is over a couple of years old. It is cheaper in most cases to get a higher capacity third party battery and replace it yourself then to buy a new ups. Unless yours is not functioning properly or you need a higher capacity unit. Just recycle the batteries and sell the unit if you upgrade.

IBM T860 Monitor (9494HB0)


Assuming that nothing is electronically wrong with the IBM 9494, it should work with the old monitor cable (VGA) as well as the old monitor power cord.

Kind regards.
