1- UPS devices have a "PASS-THRU" AC Connector Output that is ALWAYS ON - and is labeled [BYPASS]. It is a PASS from Utility Power with "Voltage Spike Filtering Function" - which means that it is "Surge Protected". This is NOT the outlet that your Computer should be pugged into. Nor do you want to plug in a SURGE PROTECTED POWER STRIP.
2- UPS devices usually have (4) - OUTPUT UPS OUTLETS. This is where you plug your Computer Only in 1st - Display Only in 2nd - LIGHT LOAD TYPE PRINTERS -(like an INKJET) only in 3rd - and the 4th can be used for an Only (1) - EXTERNAL POWERED HARD DRIVE that you use for Backup. - This gives your System FULL Protection against Power Surges - AUTOMATIC BACKUP PROTECTION on a Power Failure - Also filters out Crappy Line Fluctuations.
3- UPS devices only want to have ONLY 1 device connected to each of these [OUTPUT OUTLETS] - NO POWER STRIPS - NO SURGE PROTECTED STRIPS - AND ONLY PROPERLY RATED LOADS - NO LASER PRINTERS & NO PLOTTERS- (They have a HEAVY INRUSH load that these OUTPUTS cannot handle!!!
What is MFG & Model Number of UPS - Did you read the Manual?
Safety Note - Pull the AC Power from back of PC - & from Outlet and then keep it in your pocket!! Then FLAG PC Back Connector: DO NOT USE!! - Also Never Trust CUTOFF Switches -
Then NO ONE will plug in POWER. Your lucky!! If you were working on Power Supply - You would have been FRIED!!

Where did you obtain/purchase it?
Did you do any research on it? You should go ONLINE & look up reviews & specs on Computer Items that you want to purchase.
PC Magazine is a good place to start:
Like I say:
ELECTRONIC DEVICES ARE WONDERFUL. . .
AND SOMETIMES THEY EVEN FUNCTION!!!
