EPROM location in a ThinkPad X100e

Does anyone out there know the EPROM location in a X100e ThinkPad. (E.G. Chip number U30 or U33 maybe) I am trying to reset my BIOS password and need to short 2 pins on the EPROM. I want to make sure I get the right chip. The wrong chip could be a disaster.

Shorting pins doesn't clear anything.  The options are to remember the password or replace the motherboard
