I searched but did not find this particular problem listed or solved.
Running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, up to date, on P50, also up to date, with factory installed 2x encrypted SSD's and 1x HDD. All three set up with passwords in older BIOS two years ago at purchase and work fine. Present BIOS is 1.56 from February 2019. Also have power on password.
I can access the BIOS pages as always after entering power on password and 3x SSD/HDD passwords. I can step through the various top level categories. However, I am unable to modify any settings in the Password or Boot Sequence (at least these two, the only ones of interest) pages. I have new 1TB HDD coming from Amazon and want to replace the existing 500GB factory installed drive. Also want to check out boot order operation and to modify disc passwords for increased security.
What could possibly be denying me access to making changes desired? Thank you.

You have a supervisor/BIOS password that is different from your power-on password.

Thank you richk. I see you are nearing 10K responses to help others and appreciate your time. I did indeed have different user and supervisor passwords but forgot that the supervisor pw was required in this instance. No prompt for it appeared.
