That's because the UPS service doesn't know which UPS to use. Open the control panel, double-click "Power Options", choose the UPS tab, and pick the manufacturer that you wish to configure.
If your model isn't listed (that is: if it isn't an APC, as they added the UPS support to Windows ...) and not fully compatible with a listed one, and you want to use a manually configured one, make sure you have the settings right. Test this on a W2k desktop or other test machine first.

I have an XP Pro OS, I thought that's what I selected. XP does not have the UPS tab.
