    Hope someone here can help with this!

    I have a Windows 2000 Professional install that has had no problems since installation. However in the last few weeks, powerpoint slide shows have been causing it to blue screen.
    It does'nt happen everytime propably 4 out of every 5 times you try to display the presentation.
    Im using Powerpoint 2000 as part of MS office 2000. I have tried reapplying Win 2k service pack 2 and the office 2k service pack 2.
    I have also tried removing and re-installing office and applying all the latest updates from microsoft.com.
    I tried opening the running the slide show logged in to the same pc as another user, this also failed. The only way I can run the slide shows reliably is on another PC.
    Any ideas before I format the PC and start again?

    My first suggestion would be to remove all programs from the start up and clean the hard drive.

    Instructions can be found at


    Follow all the instructions followed by the 3 red *'s in the table of contents. The resources are probaby low and Power Point Presentatin will use a lot of resources causing it to blue screen.

    Second thing I would try if this doesn't work is try the detect and repair in PP, listed under Help.
