Exclamation No sound & Internet connection @ startup

I wonder if anyone can help me out?!!
Everytime I switch on my computer for the first time, XP loads up fine but I dont get any sound at all. I am supposed to get my Gamesurround Fortissimo III logo next to the clock, but it doesn't show. When I then click on Start, it freezes. The same also if I try to load up Control Panel or press CTR & ALT & DEL. Internet Explorer does'nt work at this point either.
Sometimes, if I leave the computer running, after about 10 minutes all of a sudden, the startup sound plays, logo shows near clock and everything works fine. And if I tried to load up control panel or anything else when it had frozen, they all pop up too. If I run out of patience, I'll reset the computer and in most cases, it'll work fine the second time.

The HD light isn't on when it freezes. I have up to date drivers on my sound card, video card etc. I have plenty of RAM and processing power etc. Any ideas at all?

I once thought that it could have been my USB connection from the modem. By pulling it out and back in again, it seemed to have given it life and everything would kick in, but I think it was just luck as that doesn't seem to work anymore.

If anyone can help me, that would be great!
