Event ID Error

by Poopsi / November 11, 2006 12:52 AM PST

When checking my Event Viewer, I noticed the following Error " Event ID 1033, Load warning, The UPS is heavily loaded" . I also noticed that my Search Protector showed the following Error message " The UPS is heavily loaded" . I have tried to find some info on the net but have not been able to find it. Does anyone know what i am dealing with. Could it be my Search Protector or even my Outlet? I would be greatful for any help. Thank you

Uninterruptible Power Supplies...

In reply to: UPS

A UPS is a surge protector with a backup battery in it. If you ever lose power a UPS can keep your computer running for a short time while you finish what you are doing, save your work, and then shut down normally.

Basically that error means that you have too much plugged into your UPS and that being pushed to or past its limits. It can lead to a number of problems, including a sudden loss of power and damage to the UPS. The solution is to unplug some of the items from the UPS and balance the load with another one. (Plug half into one and half into the other.)

That said, do you indeed have a UPS, what make/model is it (that tells us how much it can handle), and what all do you have plugged into it?

Let us know.

Thank you so much for taking the time to explain this to me. Yes, I have a Search Protector with a batterie Backup. My Search Protector is made by Belkin and to my Knowledge, I don't have to much attached to it. My All-in-one Printer is attached to the Search Protector as per their Instructions and not to the batterie backup. I have my Computer, Monitor and Speakers attached to the batterie backup. I should also mention that the Load Warning does not remain. It comes and then is replaced by "No longer Load Warning". It does not happen every day either. My Printer is turned off unless I wish to use it and then I don't receive a warning. The Model No for the Belkin is 550VA. Thnak you again for your help.
