I am running Kubuntu Natty on an Acer Aspire 5610. Both my audio and video freeze on me. If I'm listening to an audio file, the sound will suddenly begin playing the most recent sound byte again and again and again. As soon as I move my mouse, it continues playing normally, sometimes for only a few seconds, sometimes for a minute or more.

A similar problem with my video. With or without an audio track, my video will freeze until I move my mouse, then it will continue again.

I have had this problem from the time I first installed Jaunty on my Toshiba laptop all the way through Natty now on my Aspire. In all that time I have never watched a movie or listened to music without video or audio freeze except when I continuously moved my cursor in small circles. It's been a long, long time. I would like very much to solve this problem. Any ideas?
