You probably don't have an SA account with a blank password, as you don't get one by default. So, the last connection strings are probably not going to work.

But are you sure Northwind is connected to your SQL Express installation? By default it's not installed anymore. If it's not, you need a different connection string that attaches your database automatically

Do you have a copy of "sql server management studio express"? That makes managing SQL Server a lot easier.

Cheers,
