I don't hear anything wrong.

If it is, could be where the sound is initialized and where the startup sound is the Windows startup.
One thing to try and it may move the sound to a different point and fix it. Go to the Device Manager and uninstall the PC sound (e.g. Realtek or whatever you have) but DO NOT uninstall the driver. Then restart the PC and when Windows starts it will detect and reinstall the sound. Then restart it again and see if this fixes it.
