I don't think that's practically possible until you have to do it through the hardware inside..
However you may do some manipulation to the power plan of the computer system..

Power blue light flashing when i turn the computer on


It depends on where the blue light is. Is the blue light on the monitor or on the computer tower? If it is on the monitor the monitor is having problems and needs to be serviced. If it is on the tower it could be an issue with the power supply.

No video, shows orange light on front which gateway says video


it sounds like your hardware is not compatable with the update. if you can restart the computer and press f12 to boot to safe mode you should be able to open the device manager from Run: by typing devmgmt.msc, find the video adapter under 'display adapters', double click your adapter to bring up the properties window, click the 'driver' tab and click roll back driver
hope this helps. please rate me and thanks for choosing enterprise computing solutions...

No light on on computer, and monitor screen just says power saving mode, but I can;t get the computer to even come on, what do I do?


Unplug the device. Wait 30 seconds, and re-plug it in. Press the power button.

Sounds like you've got a problem recovering from Hibernate or Sleep mode. This is not uncommon. Suggest disabling one or the other, or searching for known issues and possible solutions.

GT5220 won't turn on


My motherboard was replaced twice by the gateway people. Luckily I bought it at costco and it has a two year warranty through them because gateway didn't want to deal with me until costco techies made them. I have the same model and had the same problem
