Answers :

Unplug the case from the power, open the cover and try to locate on the motherboard a small round battery (a little bigger that the one at the electronic watches) TAKE CARE THAT THE TOWER IS UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS. Very carefully remove the batery and wait 1-2 minutes. After that insert the battery back, close the case, plug the tower and start the pc. It will boot at the default bios settings, without passwords but you have to make the settings again (date, boot order e.t.c.)
In case of a problem post back.

I have quite a few d530-SFF systems. They have the ''standard PCI'' slot ''carrier'' that plugs into 1 of the 3 PCI slots on the M/B and has 2 full-size PCI slots.

Tried a 2nd system, same result. Looks like the system just won't boot with the GeForce 8400GS in the carrier slots. When I remove the 8
