    Is there any software which will enable me to show how much time is left over for the backup current of my ups to my computer...It should immediately notify me that power now is coming through my UPS and tell me the amount of time to shutdown my pc???

    You can also monitor the battery status through PowerDVD software!! Mine is APC.
    Actually the APC comes with battery monitoring software. I didn't install it though!!

    Always mention your UPS model & brand so that others can help you.
    So what brand you are using? I'm sure they have a website, from which you can download
    the drivers. If yours is a local-made one. Then I'm sorry, there won't be any software
    available to monitor it!!

    Buddy, what u r asking is for an iups (intelligent ups). They come with cables and hence can be monitored. As u r saying u dont have any s\w cd with ur ups, monitoring is not possible.

    If you are monitoring battery status using PowerDVD, then I hope you are using your APC battery monitoring software for watching DVD movies.

    Just connect your UPS to PC through usb cable or serial cable,Windows will detect your usb and shows its status while discharging & charging,Using softwares bundled with product having options to view charging status, set low voltage & high voltage cutoff values,view input & output voltages,power status extra.

    but connect extra usb cables from ups only when u hav no fluctuation in power coz sometimes a reverse current can flow thro it & destroy cpu & mobo.
    DON't SAY I DIDN't WARN!!
