Is my windows 8 working correctly?

I recently upgraded to windows 8 pro but it does these few things.

- when it starts up, it boots very fast but the startup sound does not play-

- when restarted, it takes alot longer to boot, it stays on a blank screen for a while, but the startup sound plays

- when shutting down, there is a blank screen and the backlight on the screen goes on and off a few times.

Is this correct? Why does the startup sound not play when I boot it up?

    To enable the startup sound, right-click the speaker icon on your taskbar and select "Sounds" and then check the box next to "Play Windows Startup sound".
