Synaptic Package Manager keeps crashing

My problem is that whenever I start synaptic package manager from either the terminal or the desktop it starts up and then instantly crashes back to the desktop. I have uninstalled and re-installed but there is no change. I don't know how to fix the broken packages since it is gone from the recovery mode.

If it helps I am running a dell dimension 2350 2.4 GHz CPU, ATI radion x1300 graphics card, 2 GB of ram, and a 13.9 GB hard drive with Ubuntu 11.10

When you run it from the terminal, does it give any output or errors on the terminal? If so, include that here. That might help in diagnosing the problem. –  Prateek Nov 7 '11 at 12:10
