Toshiba A135 Bios problem

Specs: None right now

Hi all, I have a problem, which I know is not only mine. Recently I was working on a friends Toshiba laptop, I was having problems getting an operating system to install completely. Running on Ubuntu live, I Looked up possible problems and realized the bios was out of date. So naturally I burned a bootable update disc and flashed the bios. Upon booting up again I'm now prompted with a bios password screen no matter if I choose f2 for setup or f12 for bootup options. Ive looked this problem up and it is very common, most say to short jopen1 or send to Toshiba. Ive tried shorting jopen1 and all it does is reset the cmos, not the password itself. I'm just wondering if anyone knows what they are doing at the Toshiba tech centers when you send it in, why cant we do it as well? Any response appreciated, thanks in advance.

I never set a password, so there is no way of knowing what it could possibly be, plus if you try three times and fail it restarts. Any other suggestions?
