What actual operating system do you have? Windows XP does not use the Boot Manager as this was introduced with Windows Vista or Windows 7 and higher versions.
If you are missing the Boot Mgr for Windows Vista or 7, then you will need to do a Startup Repair which you can do using either a Recovery CD if you have one, or else using the Vista or 7 installation disc.
Go into the Control Panel and open the Sounds and Audio Devices applet. Make sure the box marked Mute is not checked. If it is, uncheck it and click OK.
If it's not checked, open the Device Manager and make sure there are no conflicts between any of your audio devices (speakers, headphones, etc.). If a device has a conflict you will see an exclamation point on a yellow triangle next to its name. If an audio device has a red X next to its name, that device has been disabled -- open its properties and re-enable it.
If you still don't have any sound, you may need to reinstall your audio drivers. Go to your PC manufacturer's web page and download the correct drivers for your machine.
The yellow question mark shows a device that windows does not recognize what it is. You may need to install an upgraded driver for whatever you are using to access the internet and then recheck Device Manager. Good luck!
I would first try to boot into safe mode, by pressing the F8 key while booting. A menu will come up, select "safe mode" after booting into windows from the control panel use the device manager to see if there is an exclamation mark next to a device. If so you can temporarily "disable" this device then try booting normally into XP.
Try going into device manager click start then control panel then system they hardware then device manager if there is a yellow !mark next to sound then use the properties tab to reinstall the the driver
even if there is no yellow !mark follow the steps and update or re-install the driver Hope this helps
Please try to check on the device manager if your internal camera device is disabled there or probably the driver is corrupted.
