bios reset jumper setting?

Postby fibbonacci » Thu Sep 27, 2012 7:55 pm

I have done research and hunted through the multitude of chips on my Dell latitude d420's motherboard, apparently the bios is controlled by a Macronix MX25L8005 8M-bit CMOS serial flash chip, when I purchased this computer the seller neglected to give me the bios password. For this chip, which of the pins or jumpers do I need to connect in order to reset the password?
This is an 8 pin chip.
