I would recommend taking it to your local GeekSquad and telling them what specifically to replace, and why you cannot do it yourself. If you have a part for them to replace, give them the replacement if possible.
It is most likely that your UPS is not faulty. It probably doesn’t provide enough power to power all of your devices plugged into it at once. While it might be fine only powering your PC, after you have a monitor plugged into it, it probably won’t be able to handle the power draw from a PC under load and a monitor plugged into it. My suggestion would be to plug your monitor into a wall outlet, and only plug your PC into the UPS. Start playing an intensive game and then see if the UPS is still powering off. You may need to buy a higher rated UPS if the problem persists. 850 watts should be of an applicable amount, but you can never go wrong with more power. Also, you should factor in about a 100 watt headroom, as you never want a UPS that is rated for the same amount of power draw as your power supply.

Hello Sven Alleblas! Microfiber cloths come in many different sizes, and some are intended for different use cases. For a standard microfiber cloth you can buy on Amazon, these are a great choice: https://www.amazon.co.uk/MR-SIGA-Microfiber-Cleaning-Cloth-Pack/dp/B07HRCDDL1?ref_=ast_sto_dp I personally use these cloths when I clean all of my electronics, and they do wonders for cleaning up dirty screens, cases, and keyboards. Dust clings to them well, and you can use them with isopropyl alcohol without worrying about ruining the cloths. If you are looking for something a bit more heavy duty, these might be a great alternative: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Microfibre-Exel-Cleaning-Polishing-Accessories/dp/B004SH3SDM/ref=sr_1_5?dch...-5 These microfiber cloths are a tad larger, and are much thicker than the previous cloths. If you are looking for a microfiber cloth that is intended for use when cleaning screens, these would be a great option:...
Hello Debbie Long! To remove the bottom cover of your MacBook Air, you will need a P5 Pentalobe screwdriver.

Also, what kind of repair or upgrade are you trying to perform? I can provide extra guidance if you let me know.

Hello Anuphrash Subedi! Did you calibrate your new battery yet? With every new battery replacement, you need to calibrate the battery. To calibrate your phone’s battery, charge it to 100% and keep charging it for at least 2 more hours. Unplug and use your device until it shuts off due to low battery. Charge it uninterrupted to 100%. I hope this has answered your question! Happy fixing!
Hello Paul Georges! I do not think it would have done anything to damage the operation of your device. You may want to clean the effected areas and leftover glue off by applying a small amount of some isopropyl alcohol and scraping off the residue with a microfiber cloth or spudger. Thank you for using iFixit! Happy fixing!
Hello Liam Kalerantes! I have a couple of solutions that might work for you. I would recommend trying them in the order that they are listed in. After each step, check to see if your laptop’s speakers are working again. (1) Check to see if your laptop’s volume is turned up. If you have volume keys on your keyboard, try using them. (2) Perform a system restart. Click the Windows icon, click the power icon, and chose restart. Give your computer one to two minutes before logging back into Windows. (3) Check for Windows updates. Click the Windows icon, click the settings cog, scroll down and chose “Windows Update and Security”. Let the system check for all available updates. Repeat this process until all available Windows updates are installed completely. (4) Check your device’s recognized hardware components. Type “device manager” into the search bar of your Windows operating system. Check and expand all of the categories of the list and look for anything resembling speakers or a sound device. They are...
Based off of the information that you have provided above, it would appear that either your headphone plug is now damaged, or the headphone port on your phone is now damaged. It is most likely only the headphone cable or plug that is damaged. There is no way to “reset” the 3.5mm audio jack port on your phone.
