Now, when I enter the BIOS, it prompts for a supervisor password, weirdly enough. If I enter the old password, it rejects it and displays an x. If I hit enter without entering the password, it accepts the password, but then the configuration menu acts as if I hadn't entered the supervisor password, and lets me change all of the settings except for the security related ones, which prevents me from cleaning up this mess.
I've updated the BIOS to the latest version (3.23), and I've tried changing settings and saving them, with the hope that that might trigger a code path that happens to fix this discrepancy, but neither of those actions has fixed the problem. Has anyone hit this problem before? If so, how did you end up fixing it?
But here is a long shot (hope it works):
