Latitude c640 Bios password reset, chip jumper

By hankbates

  1. I have a c640 which needs a primary bios password, and it appears to me that with a properly designed jumper wire assembly terminals 3 and 6 of the 24c04 chip can be accessed from the ram cover opening without further disassembly. They appear to be the third pair in. the picture I have from the "dellpass manual" is confusing, as the orientation of the enlarged view of the chip appears to be upside down as compared to the view which locates it. Can anyone who has done it confirm this?
    Thanks for any input...

    This is not rocket science. If it looks upside down treat it as such
