Bypass BIOS password set by faulty Toshiba firmware on Satellite A55-S1065 laptop?

I am helping my cousin, with getting her laptop backup and running and it appears her daughter for some reason or another set the bios password but has forgotten it. I have read online about shorting out certain jumpers but nothing that pertains to this particular model (Toshiba Satellite C655-s5225). Any information or help would be greatly appreciated.

you can either short the pins or remove the CMOS battery. You have to be really careful when performing a laptop disassembly, especially with the tape like cables. The following is a step by step tutorial for the Toshiba Satellite C655:
