UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME problem, not sure wha

Specs: Windows XP
So, I was on my computer yesterday. Everything was functioning perfectly fine. I was on Youtube and Facebook, and I had my volume muted, when I closed my laptop, and it sat idle for around 5-6 or so hours. When I opened it back up, my volume would not work when I tried to listen to a song on Youtube, so I restarted. When I restarted, my computer blue screened and said "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME", and went on about how to fix the errors, but none of the ways it explained worked.

I really am stumped about how to fix it. I'm not sure what I should do, if I should insert a disk, or what. I do not own a Windows XP disk. Would I need one to fix this problem, or is there a method to fix it?

You can borrow a Microsoft XP CD to repair your existing installation, as long as the borrowed CD is the same version of Windows as your installed version.

There's a tutorial here:
