    I am looking for the EEPROM location of the Dell Inspiron 5160. If someone would assist me, I would be a very happy person!

    in the full dellpass documentation it says:

    Inspiron 5100

    Chip = 24C164N
    Location = on the back side of the motherboard, close to the DRAM slots.
    Short circuit the 24c164 chip during booting

    not sure if 5160 or 5105 = 5100... but have a look yourself I think.
