Office XP PPT will not Show Slideshows

By stepmonster ·
The only software installed on this pc are Windows xp and Office Xp, with all updates and service packs as of today - except for xpsp2. Everything works beautifully - except powerpoint slide shows don't "show"...
Any ideas?

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by "don't show". If you mean they do not play then that is an easy fix.

From Power Point on the toolbar up top just go to Slide Show > View Show and the .ppt file will play.

I KNOW how to start a show. They just don't start showing. Nothing happens.

Try looking to see if the presentation is being displayed on a monitor that you do not currently have connected. If you dont use multipul displays regularly this may sound strange but PowerPoint has a feature that will allow the controls to be on one display while the presentation is on another. I beleive that the setting was under tools but I am not sitting at a machine with powerpoint loaded to track down the specifics.
