    Background: I am running MS Office 2003 on WinXP 2002 SP 2. I tend to have all of the MS Office Applications open at once plus AutoCad and Lotus notes. I have 2GB of ram.

    I have a PPT file open when the screen starts flashing, I cannot page forward or backward, or edit the slide. I CAN go to slide show or quit, but if I restart power point or end the slide show the flashing starts again. I CAN go to other application and they seem to work normal.

    ANyone have any idea what's going on? I seems to me it may be some type of power point memory problem.

    Thanks:confused:

    Do you get this problem if you just open Power Point? It sounds like a memory problem to me, but....

    The problem does not seem to happen when I am only running power point but I really do not know since I do not work that way. I do know that once the problem starts I can close out all applications and the problem continues. The only way I have been able to stop the problem is to re-start. Thank

    I tend to be a heavy use also, so I understand not having just one application open at a time. 2 GB should be enough - you might get it tested to see if it is working correctly or if you have a bad stick.
