Constant beep from APC, now computer won't power up - Page 2

post #11 of 17
is the green light on the mobo on? its under the pci slots.

did you try jumping the mobo?

Which APC do you have? AFAIK a constant beeping means it is running on battery power and the battery is about drained, but a constant tone means the UPS is overloaded and the computer is drawing more then the UPS can supply. If it is a constant tone I have a feeling your PSU may be FUBAR'd.

edit: Also, have you tried jumping the psu to see if it will turn on without a load on it? Use the link Syrillian provided or you can use a paper clip as seen here; http://jonnyguru.com/modules.php?nam...ory&ndar_id=25

No. I didn't try jumping because the light isn't on.

It's a DirectUPS not APC brand, sorry about that.

I've tried plugging my computer into my power strip and into the wall also my modem which is plugged into the UPS is working fine, after I turned the UPS off for a few minutes.

I found a manual for a DirectUPS and it says that constant beeping/buzzing means the UPS is overloaded, so something is wrong with the PSU.

what is all plugged in to the ups?
ceartian printers and fax machines should not be plugged into them due to the fact they will overload them

No, I have another PSU I was gonna replace it with last week, but it doesn't have any 6-pin plugs and my GPU needs 2... I'll go buy a new one this afternoon, then.

My computer, modem, and a desk fan

Edit: I just tested my unused PSU again, and I realized I was hitting the wrong pins. My PSU is definately dead.
