    Whenever I try to access Recovery mode or Option at boot time all I get is a padlock and when I enter the password nothing happens. There is no Disk utility menu on the top left part of the screen. Works fine otherwise. I am using 10.12.

    Yes it is but when I enter it nothing happens. No disk utility menu just a padlock.

    There shouldn't be an option for disk utility, you need to be able to start into recovery or off a bootable disk first. If nothing happens, maybe it's a different password?
