For password try - admin or Admin.

The administrator password is normally blank (so, if it asks for it, just press Enter), as the administrator account in XP is not normally your own working account and is hidden, this is the account it refers to.

If u really don't know it, then go into START > RUN: Type "Control Userpasswords2".
Press OK.

Find the "Administrator" account in the list, select it, and then click reset password, put in a new password or leave them blank, when u have done, try recovery console again.
