I have a DL 380 G2 that at boot up will not display anything through the VGA port. Is there a way of resetting the CMOS to default settings (which will allow default output through the VGA). I have tried to pull the battery and power supplys for 5 minutes. i am going to leave them unplugged over night to see if it needs more than 5 minutes of disconnection.

If one is looking to perform a hard reset, then a NMI reset is required, see the following link to a DL380-G2 doc from HP, see page 4-19:

It's possible.

Aside
Older iLo or RIB cards had a video out put on them.
