Question about UPS Battery Backup Systems

2 Answers

Start up my computer was suddenly turned off and when I went back to start it up again it will go to the screen that ask you to restore to latest good start up or go to safe mode...problem is that when you do one or the other the computer just restarts and does the same thing again. I do not have any back ups (stupid) and I kinda would like to at least get some of the data before I have to do a full restore thank you for your time

Re: Start up

Yes and no. The System recovery disk might just be an image of the hard drive as it was when you bought it. You might want to check HP documentation to see what that disk is. I'll try to do the same, but I'm out of town for work now and it's hard to find time to help.

Re: Start up

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.

good luck

ups with 300 watts can only back up 1 computer, though it can handle 2 computers but not too long. your ups battery life span are good only for 2 to 3 years. for battery replacement you can visit the nearest service center and ask for battery replacement. it will not cost you much.

UPS Backup


Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".

Initially, pls charge the battery outside of the UPS. Thereafter try again. If the unit will perform, it is just that the UPS is not capable of charging the battery from a flat condition since it is normally designed to cutoff below a certain voltage level, say 10.8 volts. In some instances, it could that the comparator circuitry that is responsible for trigerring on/off the inverter when the battery is at a certain level is defective. Due to the absence of a schematic diagram my end, it would rather be difficult to pinpoint the exact part unlike what was available for the Samsung SyncMaster 753S. If you would try to wing it, pls start with fusible resistors, presence of standby voltage (often 24V), charging voltage of >12VDC and a +5 logic voltage/supply. Pls exercise extreme care, the battery terminals have a relatively higher voltage (than 12) with respect to the chassis ground.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
