This seems different, since it's easy to un-mute the sound. But it still shouldn't start muted. I have this problem too, albeit only sporadically (and generally only after a full restart), even when I log off/shut down and the sound is at some other level. – Aibara Iduas Nov 29 '11 at 23:23

This has already been much discussed in:

No sound after boot

How can I automatically mute the volume at every boot?

(Which are really the same subject.)
