I assume if you can't get past "This screen" you can't get to device manager. Have your tried using your XP disc to Repair

cannot get into windows to reach device manager? Is there some other way?

As I said use your XP disc either to boot or repair

when i use the boot disk it does not give me the option to repair only reformat. i have reformatted twice since fitting new hard drive. Could it be a problem with the hardware?

You should have a repair option. Have you got a full Windows XP disc?
