I am trying to install Ubuntu 9.04 on a Dell Inspiron 1520. It is installed and everything seems to be working fine. However, once I login the computer totally freezes and the sound makes a weird sound and then stops. When the sound stops the computer is totally frozen.

Does it have something to do with the sound or graphics drivers?

A simple Google search (http://www.google.com/#hl=en&source=hp&q=ubuntu+9.04+Dell+Inspiron+1520&aq=f&aqi=&oq=&fp=94f5bc3d92523f1a) brings up quite a few results for sound driver problems, but I can't seem to find anything about the computer freezing.

Perhaps you could try installing an older release, such as 8.04 LTS, instead.
