Sory mate, but I tried repairing and as soon as I press R for repair, the system is asking me for password for which I haven't got a clue. I bought this from the local Computer shop, I think I gotta ask them...

Just hit Enter, unless someone has dedicated a password, default is no password.

If the recovery console prompts you for a password when there is none, then you need to edit the registry

Look for the bit about removing prompting of a password

Mr Gates makes nothing simple. I'd trawled round years of passwords before I twigged
