My UPS immediately turns off, along with everything plugged into it, as soon as the power goes off. It doesn't keep things on for 16 minutes or anything. I have to look for purchase info to see how long I had it.

Bad battery in the UPS. To test unplug all equipment. Check outgoing power with voltage meter. Should read around 115vAC. Then unplug from the wall outlet. Check voltage again. If no voltage is present its a bad battery.
1. Four beeps every 30seconds (On Battery LED will be illuminated) This alarm indicates that the Battery PowerSupplied outlets are now supplying battery power as opposed to power from theutility. If the UPS determines that the input utility power is unsafe for yourcomputer equipment, the UPS will switch to battery power. Note: Ifthe power disturbance is brief, you may only hear one or two beeps.
2. Continuous Beeping (On Battery LED will beilluminated) This alarm indicates that a Low Batterycondition has been reached and that the UPS will soon shutdown. Once the UPStransfers to On Battery operation, it can only stay on battery for a limitedamount of time. The UPS will sound this alarm about two minutes before thebatteries are totally exhausted. Once exhausted, the UPS will shutdown and turnoff its output power to your equipment. If you hear this tone you shouldimmediately shutdown your computer to prevent data loss or corruption.
3. Continuous Beeps for 30 seconds (BackUPS OFFICE 250 and 280 ONLY) This alarm indicates the unit has detected anOverload condition after it has performed a self-test during start-up.
4. Continuous Two-Tone Beep This alarm indicates a severe Overload wasdetected while the unit was on-battery operation. This tone will continue tosound until the unit shuts down.
5. Continuous Tone (On Battery LED will beflashing) This alarm indicates that the battery-poweredoutlets are overloaded.
6. Continuous Tone (On Line and On BatteryLEDs flashing) Back UPS OFFICE 350,400, and 500 ONLY This alarm indicates that an internal UPS faulthas occurred.
Without actual troubleshooting I would either say that it is not wired correctly or is just old and needs to be replaced. If you have an onsite technician I would have him/her make sure that everything is plugged into the UPS correctly and if that doesn't work I would look at getting a replacement. Hope this helps, if you need anything else let me know.
With your UPS turned off, unplug your PC and all other devices from the unit. Then turn the UPS on. If it still beeps and shuts off your UPS internal battery may need to be replaced or you have an internal UPS failure. Look for a red "battery alarm" light on the front of your UPS.
If the UPS does not shut down with all devices disconnected from it, Power off your monitor and look on the back of the monitor for a label which will tell you the amount of power it requires (probably 100 watts or less). Plug the monitor's AC power cord into your UPS and turn on your PC and monitor. With the UPS plugged into the AC line you are not using the internal battery and the UPS should remain on and your monitor should be working. If it shuts down you have an internal problem with the UPS.
Now unplug your UPS from the AC line (simulating a power failure) Your UPS is rated at 350 watts. Accordingly it should easily support the 100 watt load of your monitor. If the UPS continues to provide power to the monitor for 1 or 2 minutes down it's an indication that it's working properly and the COMBINED LOAD of your monitor. PC etc. when plugged into the UPS is exceeding the 350 watt capacity of the UPS. You will have to disconnect 1 or more devices from the UPS.
NOTE: Never plug a laser printer into an UPS.
If the UPS immeadiately shuts down after disconnecting it from the AC line with only the monitor plugged into it you have a bad battery.

You must install the software that came with your UPS on the computer that will be connected to the UPS, either via serial or USB. Within the software you can configure when to shut the computer down in case of a power failure.
Ok, it sounds like the battery could be dead, easiest is to open it up and check using a multimeter. run it parellel with the battery, reading should be 12VDC, connect the power, if it goes to 13+ VDC then we know the charging circuit is ok. also disconnect the battery and check the voltage on it.
