How do I clear a BIOS password on a Toshiba Satellite L455D-S5976?

If I have to remove the CMOS battery then where is it located on this particular laptop? Ive looked for service manuals onliine but can't seem to find any.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Everything else I found was kind of 'iffy' so I didn't want to point you to that.  Figured pressing a key couldn't hurt much if it didn't work.  But the suggestions about shorting things on the motherboard were different everytime so I don't know what to tell you.

You have to take it to an authorized service provider. I havent seen any document showing how to reset the bios password without the bios password on this model...

On Toshiba laptops this can be done only by a hard BIOS reset, and this can be done only by the dealer or authorised dealer, by rewriting the BIOS with a special device

You can't remove the password, without knowing it !
modern laptops keep it in a security chip - for anti-theft reasons
resetting the bios does not help;  nor does removing the battery, since the password is not in there
you would need to know in what chip it is, and how to reset that
you have to turn it in to the manufacturer, and show proof of ownership - then they can help
or replace the mobo !

for toshiba, i found this :  http://askiris.toshiba.com/ToshibaTCL/search.do;jsessionid=038C409E335EBD93E6F50BD518AB23A5?cmd=displayKC&docType=kc&externalId=http--web1toshibaca-support-TechSupport-TSBs-ALL--TSB000593htm&sliceId=&dialogID=114474125&stateId=1%200%20114472796
