Default Power Supply Beeping

Ive gota Powercom UPS and whenever i start up a game and start to play it, the power supply WILL NOT STOP BEEPING!! (its fine when i'm not in a game)

Ive got just my computer and my monitor hooked up to it.

How do i stop it?

550 watts seems like enough, but it does sound to me like you're pulling too much power when playing games, thus causing the UPS to kick in. Do you have any extra fans or things like that which could be consuming power?

So....
The PSU does not beep it is your battery backup that is beeping? Eliminate the problem device.

If you look carfully, i wrote UPS, not PSU.

UPS stand for Uninterruptable Power Supply.
