Question KDE freezes after installing ALSA

right after i power on and log in as root, lsmod doesn't say much but after opening up kde, (with sound working normally), and closing kde, lsmod returns lots of snd-XXX stuff, which i assumed is the alsa related stuff. when i try starting kde up agiain, it freezes, causing me to have to manually turn off my computer, which is of course not good for my partitions
i do not understand why lsmod is diffrent after opening kde. why arent' all those modules already loaded? obviously, im sorta new to linux, so an explanation would be greatly appreciated!!
