Unplug your power source open the case and remove the battery, wait 60s put the battery back and turn on the computer. I think than you will not be waken up and you will be able to access BIOS as well.

    For removing Windows Passwords in safety, I highly recommend windows password reset tools. Last week, and then I downloaded it and used it to remove the lost password successfully. You can download one from:http://www.reset-windows-password.com

Using dual monitors on a Dell Optiplex GX260


You cant.. Unless the nvidia card you added has two video OUTs. Plugging in a aftermarket card causes the motherboard to disable the onboard video..
If your nvidia card has two "outs" then you can use two monitors... most newer nvidia cards support this. sometimes it requires an adaptor, but usually it was included in the box

Installing a sound card into my Optiplex GX260


Hi

OptiPlex GX260 can be Small Form-Factor, Small Desktop or Small Mini-Tower. Compatibility with PCline 5.1 PCI depends on the profile of the PCI Card and the Profile of your OptiPlex.

GX260 Small Form-Factor is compatible with Low-Profile PCI Cards only. GX260 Small Desktop and Small Mini-Tower are compatible with standard PCI Cards. (Small Mini-Tower however uses a PCI Cage).

Check OptiPlex GX260 Systems User's Guide - http://support.euro.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx260/en/ug/index.htm
From here you visualize the 3 form factors. Also there is info and steps to install PCI cards.

NB:
1. Generally, upmarket PCI cards are standard height. Some manufactures supply a metal piece to allow it to be used in Low-Profile or Standard Profile.
2. Driver software needs to be installed after the hardware is installed.
