Where is reset button, or how can I reset a gateway 504GR

If you really do mean the reset button and not something else, it will be located on the front panel somewhere. If you can't find one, then your computer does not have one, there are many retail makers that save a nickle by not installing one anymore. In that case the only thing you can do is press the three keys: Cntrl/Alt/Delete to access Task Manager, then select reboot. OR for a hard reset hold in the power button for a few seconds and the computer will shut down, then reboot. I do not suggest doing this except in case of an extreme situation since it is possible (not probable) to cause corruption in the operating system.
If you are having problems with your computer, I suggest you join which is a free computer help forum. I hang out there as well as other techs who help people with their computer problems. In your case, post in the Hardware and Media section.

Gateway 504gr bios update failed

You maybe using the wrong version, it's already updated, or simply can not be upgraded.
Unless there is a TRUE need to flash, and usually there is not, I would stay away from. So many people try and fail, only to wipe the CMOS, leaving the system useless. Here is some sound advice on the subject.

Gateway 504GR starts running then the monitor read "power saving"

mine does the same thing, the first time it did it, i removed the dial-up modem that it came with, and it booted up just fine with no problems. now, after a year ago of this happening it decides to do it again this morning, so i'm kind of clueless now, considering that there's no modem in it, so i have no idea what could be causing the problem

Gateway will not turn on.

Sounds like the power supply. Here is the part number that you can shop for online.

Hope this helps.

Locks up at destuctive restore

you need to enable the USB controllers in the bios, (this F1 or F2 on boot up), before you can complete the restore, there are no viruses there because you are not booted into windows so a virus won't affect it

good luck and keep us informed with your progress
