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 ) 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.

Thank Mauro,

I rebooted again and I can get to the bios/grub display just fine now. Must
have been a transient issue..

NUT shuts the box down when the UPS hits 15% remaining (CyberPower CP1000AVRLCD
... I really like these UPS's). The box shut down just fine, I think the boot
limit was reached which caused fsck to run. I have no explanation for the
missing 8800gt after the power outage. I guess there was some stray voltage that
went somewhere when it happened. Looks like it is all back to normal now.
