Question about APC Smart-UPS UPS System
Plug it into a wall, turn the beeps to off, plug in a desk or table lamp, unplug the UPS from the wall and let it drain down to nothing with the lamp on. You may want to time this. This is how you break in a new battery too.
After its completely dead, unplug the lamp, plug it into the wall outlet and let it charge backup again.
You should not get the error message.
Now, if the error message is from your PC and you have the USB cable attached. Remove the USB cable from the UPS to the PC. using Add/Remove programs in Control Panel remove teh UPS software, have the UPS disc on hand first. Reboot. when you get your desktop, install the UPS software and do not attach the USB cable until told to do so or until the installation is complete and you have rebooted the PC. Reboot after installation whether it tells you to or not. During the system restart, plug the USB cable back in. You should be fine. If you continue to see this reporting error, download a program update for you UPS.
