I recently bought this UPS (Uninterruptable Power Supply) to protect my main workstation from power outages. However the way to set this up was not very apparent. I wanted to connect the USB cable so that when the power fails, the computer would shut itself off…
First of all when I pluged in the USB port, Vista (this was the same in XP too) auto detected a
Human Interface Device (HID) device, which was strange, since this is usually for MICE AND KEYBOARDS. So originally I thought there was some mistake in the drivers.. but this was NOT the case.. after googling a bit I found out that all UPS devices (usb) are detected as HID devices!
I then installed the software but it kept saying that the UPS was not detected. The final solution was simple.. but i stumbled upon it later. I had to select MEGA USB from the drop down selection as seen in the following screenshot:
Thats it, comments are welcome:
