Soooo yeah, just like the title says...

After I press power the lights of HDD and Power light up, but the screen is pitch black, and I get an 8 beeps code, which probably means the main ATI 5430m GPU got fried...

However, I have an Intel i3-380m CPU which has an integrated graphics, but I have absolutely no idea how to switch with no bios even getting to display....

Would Appreciate anyone helping me, and I don't even think the bios has an option in it to switch the GPUs, yes it is that old if no one noticed yet...

Laptop: Dell Inspiron n4030

The 'switching' in that laptop is automated and, as the 5430m is 'baked in', if it's having a hardware issue, you're having an overall hardware issue.

I'm not aware of any way to force the 380M under the circumstances you're describing, and suspect you're going to have to replace that laptop.
