There are two thing you will need to check.

1) Is blank is the password for sa.

To assign a new password do this:
How to assign the sa password on a newly installed server (Enterprise Manager)
To assign the sa password
Expand a server group, and then expand a server.
Expand Security, and then click Logins.
In the details pane, right-click sa, and then click Properties.
In the Password box, type the new password.

2) Rightmouse click on your server name and select properties from Enterprise Manager.
Then select "Security Tab". Make sure "Sql Server and windows" option is selected.

what are you selecting for the Server? depemding on your network set up you may need to try one of the following methods of connection to your SQL Server instance:

IP - xxx.xxx.x.xxx
FQDN - SQLSERVER1.DOMAIN.COM
Server Name - SQLSERVER1
Default - (Local)

Of all these, IP is probably the best bet and Local is probably the least likely.

Have you done this?

2) Rightmouse click on your server name and select properties from Enterprise Manager.
Then select "Security Tab". Make sure "Sql Server and windows" option is selected.

I tried the same with sa user it works without problem.
