There are a few steps that you could try. First try resetting your configs to the default:

vlc --reset-config --reset-plugins-cache

If this does not work try altering the Video Out device used by vlc by going to:

Tools --> Preferences --> Video --> Output

and experimenting a little until you find a successful setting. If this does not work try altering the Audio Out device used by vlc by going to:

Tools --> Preferences --> Audio --> Output module

and experimenting until you find a successful setting.
