Try to get into the bios, if you see no image try to plug the display on
both outputs (not at the same time of course :p ) and see if you can get
any image.

If it works then for some reason the display priority may have changed
in the bios, and I guess you can correct it there. No other ideas here
except that the hardware might have disliked that outage, you really
should look into getting the system to power off properly when the UPS
in low on battery.
