plugged in a UPS to my PC and the power supply smoked. also fried the CD drive, HDD, Floppy, MB, and possibly the network port on my switch. Any clues as to what might have caused this?

My recollection is that UPS's come with a warranty on stuff like this. I'd hit 'em up for it.

I don't know where u live, so my guess for it would be ur outlet for 220V and power supply set for 120V. But I'm also guessing u're from US or near, so don't know of anything else but jumping power in ur outlet (have no idea how to say it in english, didn't study phisics in english), happens sometimes during lightening. I had this before.

good point. I will take it up w/ APC. I havd unplugged the UPS to use it on another computer. Iwent to plug it back into to the orignal system and that system fried. Seems to me that APC should cover it regardless.
