Toshiba Satellite L755-S5366 BIOS reset procedure

I need to clear the BIOS password from a Toshiba Satellite. Apparently it's something to do with the G2 or G3 solder points (highlighted). Where can I find more information on this? Does anyone know the procedure to reset the BIOS?

I followed the procedure to the best of my ability using a piece of wire. The wire got quite hot and.. Bricked it! Oh well... As an afterthought, how hard is it to replace the CMOS/BIOS chip(s)? Do you experts think that it might an easy fix?

Wait a second.. Was I supposed to bridge G2 *to* G3? Or is the procedure to jump both of the pads individually but simultaneously?

Just G2-G3 - the two triangles pointing at each other - without touching any of those little circles.

how hard is it to replace the CMOS/BIOS chip(s)? Do you experts think that it might an easy fix? - depends how good you are with a soldering iron and what you've actually cooked
- no, not an easy fix.
