    Hello, I have to reset EEPROM on motherboard, for that I have to sort pin 5&6. I am new to soldering and with limited resources like pwn style soldering iron, solder wire, flux, wire etc. The problem is the EEPROM chip is very small (see attached image), though in the image it looks big due to zoom click, actual size is around half of a rice grain. I want to solder two wires on the 5&6 legs and then power on board to sort it. Its so small I cant even see it properly, if I try to solder 2-3 legs get combined, my poor soldering skills. Can any one guide me any idea how to go about it.

    Just use a small metal screwdriver to "sort" the pins. Hold the screwdriver in place and then power on the MB.
