    Hello, from my username you can tell I am experienced with Macs. However, I am using a Windows computer for a school project and I am having trouble with Powerpoint.

    I'm using several sound files for my presentation. Most of them are midi files from Clip Art. Everything was working fine, and all the sounds were playing, so I saved the presentation and then I added another file, in wav format.

    This file wouldn't play in previews or in the slideshow, so I deleted it and tried again. Still didn't work. I took it out again, and tested the presentation without it. None of the other sounds would play.

    How can I get the sounds to play, and what do you think caused this? I didn't move any files or anything. This is so confusing!

    Any help would be appreciated.

    What version of PowerPoint are you using?

    Are you sure the sound has NOT been "muted' on this system?

    Yeah the sound isn't muted because I redid some of them and a few of them work, but a lot of them don't play now. And the wav file won't play at all.

    I'm not sure what version it is, but it's an older version I think. I can't check at the moment what version it is but I will check later.
