    I presume that leaving the fields blank did not work?

    When you are at the login screen there should be a power icon at the lower right of the screen. Click on this and then hold down the shift key and click Restart. This should get you to a screen where you can select troubleshoot and Advanced Options to reset or repair your laptop.
