    strange i dont see it anywhere.. might have to do cmos battery short if its soldered while holding power button with no main power or battery for 1 minute
    then unshort and try power cord.

    i did L500D-13P yesterday that had J1 with the T and U copper colored.. but would not reset pwd only time reset.
    so i did the battery short since it was soldered and pressed power button for about 30 secs... bam! no pwd

    try looking under other doors to see if u see cmos battery (i had to take apart L500D)
