For starters you're looking at the back side of the motherboard, you won't find it there. Second, it's most likely opposite that large piece of foil shielding. Third, why do you want to know? If you are looking to replace it with something else forget it, it's soldered to the board.

Probably on the other side. Why are you trying to find it?

Thanks for replying. I think it's there too.

I'm trying to do the overflow soldering, I saw many people say it fixed the black screen problem.

Only fixes it temporarily, if at all, and could render the entire motherboard a brick.
