Turn off the computer.

It should remain off at that point.

If the computer keeps comming back on , you need to do some more configuration

such as ( do not wake up on USP device ) that may be in your computers bios settings.

also check your settings in windows , ( do not allow this device to wake the computer up from suspend )

You'll figure it out !

I have a Gateway Laptop that is 6860fx, and I wish to do a factory reset on it. The reason is that the laptop is infected with many pop-ups.

factory reset removes everything
why not go to settings and just remove pop up setting --turn it off and delete pop-ups

When connected to power the green light is not showing and the battery light is is always on

This indicates the battery is worn out and will not provide power in the event of a mains power failure.
To test the battery, connect a computer or some other device to the output on the UPS, and connect the UPS to the mains supply. Turn on the mains power to the UPS and power up the computer, then turn off the main power to the UPS and if the computer switch off in a short time.
This proves the battery is old and needs to be replaced.

Computer restarts as soon as power goes off, its not an ups . When i manually turn off the power to the UPS, it switches / relay works fine, but if actually if there is a power outage the relay does not...

Your question is slightly confusing. Do you mean that the computer is not powered by a UPS? If the computer is not connected to the UPS, then why have a UPS? If the computer is not connected to the UPS and restarts when you turn the UPS On, your circuit feeding the UPS is overloaded and the voltage dips. If the computer is connected to the UPS, and restarts when there is a power outage, the fault may lie in the reaction of the HP 800. This unit looks to be a line interactive unit and it is not a true on-line UPS. The line interactive and battery backup (no voltage regulation) units both should have a switch to battery power time of 4 msecs, or less. If this unit is faulty and the switchover time is longer, it will not continue to hold up the computer internal power supply. If you are trying to run a laser printer on the HP unit, it won't have enough output capacity.

Power turned computer off. Now all connected again

All ups' have a reset button. Press it and it will get back to normal.
If it doesn;t, your UPS went bad.
Replacement is needed.

My monitor ,keyboard,and mouse dosen't work . my computer is a gateway GT 5058

The fact that the monitor, keyboard and mouse don't work points towards a bad motherboard. If you can hear fan's running, see lights on the front of your PC then you are getting power to the motherboard.
