I just clicked f2 to get into my setup screen and change my password. I changed it from an actual word to just blank (hit the enter key). For some reason the option to change the other password (either user or admin, whichever). When I saved changes and exited, then tried to continue booting, the computer asked my for my password, but when I clicked "enter," it didn't take. It let me try once or twice more, and shut down. I then tried my old pasword, but it will not take that one either, and shuts down.
I tried inserting the OE disc that came with my computer, thinking I'd just reformat, but I'm still asked for the password, and still shut down.

Can anyone tell me what to do?
