Cannot delete row due to: out-of-range smalldatetime value

I'm having a problem with mssql. I accidentally inserted a value into a smalldatetime field using getdate(). When I try to delete the row using queries like

delete from tborders where nOrderID=1


delete from tborders where Convert(Varchar,dteOrderDate,103) = '22/03/2006'

It gives me the error;

The conversion of char data type to smalldatetime data type resulted in an out-of-range smalldatetime value.

Is there another delete statement I could use to get rid of this row?

Thanks in advance for your help.

delete from tborders where Convert(Varchar(10),dteOrderDate,103) = '22/03/2006'
