powerpoint presentations fail to run

  captain birdseye 11:22 05 Dec 07

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro (new) running XP Pro, which refuses to run powerpoint presentations. The presntations run fine on other machines but the slide show is there but will not run on this one particular machine. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Powerpoint and this has not cured the problem. Any ideas please?

My first thought is to check what version of PowerPoint is installed on your laptop. If your laptop has a version older than the PC on which the prsentation was created, this could cause problems. If this is the case, on a PC where the presentation does run, save it as the version you have on your laptop, and all should be well.

NB, you might try installing a PowerPoint reader
