Hi all,

I am using Hardy on my laptop.

I use VLC to watch dvds because it shows menus and thus I am able to turn on the subtitles.

For somereason unknown to me I am suddenly unable to use VLC as the error popup says "unable to open vlc"

I've tried removing and installing it, and it still displays the same error message.

Come to think of it, I also find watching movies a little choppy, misses bits and i find out later watching it on tv, there were bits I missed on the laptop. How do i fix this as well?

Thanks in advance.

ETA: I have an ATI sticker on my laptop if that helps?
