During move from one location to another,movers pull the power cord from domain controller.When we were doing setup at new location,DC got a blue screen
We attempted to run repair on startup but there was a screen where I had to enter a password for Administrator
Since it is a DC,I don't have Administrator account,neither any local accounts
What password I was asked to enter

You're being asked to enter the directory services restore mode password.  You were prompted to set it when you setup the DC.  It should have been noted and stored in a safe place.

Do you have any other DCs?  Backups?
