The answer I posted involved installing Ubuntu Tweak, but have you tried just clicking the mute button on the login screen? It should mute the login sound but once logged in your user's sound should not be muted.

Does your setting Alert Volume = Mute actually mute some of your sounds? On that same menu, try clicking on the word "Default" under alert sounds. Does it make a beep when Mute is not selected and is silent when mute is selected?

Have you tried clicking on the speaker icon and then selecting mute?

Use Ctrl-Alt-T to open the terminal and run the commands DK Bose posted. Then edit your question above to paste their output into it.

Try right clicking desktop and selecting "Change Desktop Backgroud". From the window that pops up, go to "Theme" and select a new one until you get the look you want.

comment My USB Keyboard isn't working
lsusb does not show my usb keyboard and mouse either and both work, so that may not be definitive. Have you tried using a different usb port? It's possible something in linux may be conflicting on that port.
