System Repair Password?

I want to use the system repair option that's available when I press F8 at start up. I have an Inspiron 531 running Vista 32. When I select that option a prompt appears with "Administrator" as the user name and a blank password field. I never set a password, so I can't use this feature. Is there a default password or a way to get around having to enter a password.

Hi Jerrywarriner,

This forum is for hardware questions. Let me suggest you post in the Microsoft OS forum for help with your password problem.

By the way, what happens if you just hit enter?

Thanks for gently guiding me to the correct forum instead of stating the oft-used, "Hey, idiot, watch where you're posting your stupid messages!" BTW, hitting Enter doesn't work.
