    It only affects the PC during an outage, but it will probably beep incessantly until you get it repaired. UPS units usually have to have the battery replaced about every 3 or 4 years. Unfortunately, that's not a cheap thing to replace... where I used to work, I was the one that took them to the shop to be replaced... and the battery usually ran between $60 and $80 USD.

    And for that price, you might as well just replace the whole unit. That way you get a new warranty too.
