Question about Tomtom GPS
It sounds as though the UPS is not receiving power. Check that it's cable is properly plugged into the wall. Also verify that it's internal ground fault interrupter has not tripped, it's usually a little red button on the back of the unit, it should be pressed in and should stay that way, if it pops out then there is a problem with the ground of your electrical outlet. Also check that the breaker for that electrical has not tripped at your fuse box.
Since the UPS is not receiving power the batteries have discharged and that is why your computer cannot start, there is not enough juice from the UPS to boot it. That is also why it is making a noise as most UPS's sound an alarm to indicate that they are not connected to power.
There is a chance that the batteries in your UPS have gone bad or that something has become faulty in your UPS. Try plugging your computer and monitor directly to the wall bypassing the UPS to see if they work fine.

The issue has been resolved. I removed the back of the TV (pretty easy
actually) by laying a blanket over the kitchen table and placing the TV
face down. I started with the power supply as an obvious beginning.
Both fuses on the board tested fine. And touched up every solder joint
with a hot soldering iron in case the problem was a cold solder joint.
After this painstaking venture, I performed another visual inspection
and noticed a capacitor that had a thin black X on the top of the can.
This is a common sign the capacitor has over heated. I located a
replacement for $1.20, installed, and successfully powered up the TV. I
have had no problems since.
Oh, yeah, I also paid $120 for a BN44-00150A replacement power supply, plus overnight shipping. It actually arrived three weeks later. That was two weeks and six days after I fixed the power supply myself.

If you search for "TomTom turns itself on", you will find that there appears to be a problem which TomTom will not acknowledge. Mine always turns itself back on exactly (to the minute) one week after being switched off and runs the battery down. Tomtom have got me to reformat and had it back for repair but the problem remains
