Help EEPROM chip information

  1. Hi all I have a dell latitude D800 with a bios password enabled. I'm not asking for the code based on my service tag number. All I want is to know if someone has successfully cleared the bios password using the paper clip method. I've spent a lot of time looking for a solution to this problem and it seems that dell is hiding these chips by hiding the under the hardware and by putting stickers on top of these chips. Although, I think I've found it. This is the only pic I’ve been able to find of the location that I think it’s the eeprom chip labeled 24c04. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
