Reset bios password on Gateway NV55c

I need to know where the bios reset jumper is on the Gateway NV55C.  Removing the CMOS batter was not enough to remove the password.

There is no password jumper on a laptop. To reset the password you have to contact gateway, and pay to have it reset at their repair facility, or you can replace the motherboard.

to support  the post above :
You can't remove the password, without knowing it !   -->  ( what good is a password that can be "repaired" ?)
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 !
