well... here is the situation:
1) my UPS failed -- I think because the battery in it was getting weak in less than a year!!!
(side note: I will not be buying a CyberPower UPS *ever* again --
get this--- I called them with my issue --if you have a problem with their product you can send it in (you pay for shipping), they might fix it.. BUT they don't send you a replacement (temporary product) and it could take a couple weeks. Unexceptable!!!
That's like taking your car to the dealership for repairs AND they don't give you a loaner car. )
2) the first months it was fine... two days ago... I got a power surge and it the UPS failed.. my PC turned off right in the middle of things... as I was working on it.
3) Yesterday and Today... when I turned on my pc in the morning... about 1 minute into it... (doing some work)...
IT FREEZES in mid stream... control - alt - delete did not work!!!
I had to use reset button.
4) 2 days in a row it happend.... SO the surge /pc turning off cause it to be unstable == imagine that?!?!!?
SO.... anyone have any great ideas on how to trouble shoot this issue?
-- I was trying to repeat it.. on purpose.. but have not
-- one time I was in MS Word went it froze, onetime was just on browser.
-- once PC is off for the night and turn on in morning it happens.
then you reset it... is fine.
-- have not turned PC off and tried it then... except for night... BUT will try it shortly
THANKS --- i really don't want to reformat/start over again!!
