Specs: Windows XP, 1GB ddr ram
Hi, I am geeta and I was using Proview ups frm the past 5 months, two days back there was heavy rain and power cut, i did turn off the entire system, but later after every thing was fine, when i started turning ON my ups, it turns on properly only, but the thing is whenever i turn on my pc, [i.e. my cpu] my ups made flickering sound as if there was severe power fluctuation and though i ON my pc it immediates turns off, what i had to do is just close the entire system. Now due to this i recently bought a Microtek ups. I connect only my monitor and cpu to the ups. what should i do in order for the ups to work properly and not only that how should i take care in such a way that my computer is not affected by my ups? please suggest me. I did already charge my ups[Microtek] for about ten hours before using.

Your English is pretty good, however, I'm not really sure what your question is.

Does the new UPS and computer run fine and you are asking how to prevent the same thing that happened to the old UPS?

Or, does the computer still shut down when connected to the new UPS?

Also, "Please suggest me." would be better as "Please advise me."

Consumer UPS's are made for occasional use. It is intended
for saving data while the power is going off. It needs to be
recharged fully before another power failure cycle. The normal
UPS has a power con time of less than 20 minutes. The
battery capacity and cooling capacity is inadequate. What
you need is a full time capable UPS. Most power centers
only depend on batteries for a short time. A generator usually
starts in about 5 minutes. Also switch over equipment is
needed to prevent surges. Or you can get a room full of
batteries and properly rated inverters.

By "earthing" you are refering to what is also known as "grounding". Here is one example of a device that will test for proper grounding."

I also am not sure I understand the question. But to protect your equipment, they should be 'unplugged' during an electrical storm.
