Corrupt Pptx files. Need to repair them. Please help!


1st. Try to find the temporary file when you creating it
When you edit a presentation, PowerPoint creates a temporary copy of the file. This temporary file is named PPT####.tmp.
Note #### represents a random four-digit number.
This temporary file may reside in the same folder as the presentation. Alternatively, it may reside in the temporary file folder.
Step 1: Look for temporary file in the documents folder
Windows Vista
Click Start, and then click Documents.
Look for a file that is named PPT####.tmp.
Windows XP
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type %userprofile%\My Documents.
Click OK.
Look for a file that is named PPT####.tmp.
If you do not find the file, you must search for it. To do this, go to step 2.
If you do find the file, go to step 3.
Step 2: Search for the temporary file
Windows Vista
Click Start, and then type PPT*.tmp in the Start Search box.
Press ENTER.
Microsoft Windows XP
Click Start, and then click Search.
In the Named box or in the Search for files or folders named box, type PPT*.tmp.
In the Look in box, click My Computer, and then click Find Now or Search Now.
Step 3: Rename the file, and then try to open the file in PowerPoint
Right-click the file, and then click Rename.
Change the old file name extension from .tmp to .pptx so that the file name resembles the following file name:
PPT####.pptx
Start PowerPoint.
In PowerPoint 2007 click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Open. In PowerPoint 2010 click the File menu, and then click Open.
Browse to the folder that contains the renamed file.
Try to open the file in PowerPoint.
Note More than one file may correspond to the temporary file that was created the last time that you saved the presentation. In this case, you may have to open each file to see whether one is the temporary copy of the presentation.

How to make power point presentation


The PowerPoint software program allows you to create slide presentations that can be viewed on any computer.


While some graphic artists specialize in developing compelling presentations, anyone can develop a PowerPoint slide presentation that is attractive and readable.

Follow these steps to develop your own slide show.


Open your PowerPoint program. When the dialog box opens, click on the "Blank Presentation" option.


Choose an "AutoLayout" format.

Begin with the title slide layout, which is the first one on the left. Click "OK," and you will have a title slide to work with.


Add text to your slide by clicking in the title text box and typing a title.

Do the same thing in the subtitle box.


Create another slide by clicking the "New Slide" button on the Common Tasks toolbar.

When the AutoLayout dialog box appears, choose a layout for this slide.


Keep adding new slides until your presentation is complete.

Move from slide to slide by clicking the button on the lower-right corner of the PowerPoint window.


Clicking the button with the upward-pointing arrows will take you to the previous slide, and clicking the button with the downward-pointing arrows will take you to the next slide.


Save your presentation. Click the "File" menu and then click "Save As."


A dialog box will appear, and you'll be able to type in a name for your presentation.

The presentation will be saved to your hard drive.

How to insert video in the PowerPoint 2003?


Insert a movie and play it automatically
In PowerPoint 2003, you can run your movies full screen. This is a very excellent feature.
  • On the Insert menu, point to Movies and Sounds, and then click Movie from File.
  • Click the video you want to use and then click OK.
  • Tips: Always put the movie in the same folder as your PowerPoint presentation. If you later move the PowerPoint presentation to another computer, copy the movie too. Keeping your movie in the same folder as your presentation ensures the link will still work. However, you should always test the movie on a new machine just to be certain. Re-insert the movie, if necessary.
  • After you click OK, you' are promoted with a message asking how you want the movie to start in the slide show.

  • 44fc8c6.gif

    I recommend choosing Automatically even if you want the movie to play when clicked- I will talk about how to set this part too. (If you choose when clicked you have to click the black box to start the movie. Because I don't like to show the black box on the slide, I do this a little differently.)

  • You should now have a small rectangle sitting on your slide.
    d62d46e.gif

  • Insert a movie using a file on your computer or in another location, such as a server.
  • The movie appears as a still frame on your slide.
  • The trick I use is to move that rectangle off the slide, so it is sitting next to it, but not on it. You can size it down if you like. Click the movie (that is, the rectangle) and then drag it off the slide.
    b2702b0.gif

    Play the movie full screen
  • Right-click the movie object (the small rectangle) and on the shortcut menu, click Edit Movie Object.
  • The Movie Options dialog box appears. Under Display Options, select the Zoom to full screen check box, and then click OK.
    4ceb182.gif
  • If you want your movie to play automatically when you advance to this slide, you can stop here.
Test this now to see how it workd by starting the slide show. (On the Slide Show menu, click View Show.) Advance to the slide with the movie, (best if you have the title of the movie on it). Within a couple of seconds, the movie starts to play full screen. When the movie finishes, you return to the same slide (but no unsightly box appears). Click to advance to your next slide.

Add an On Click effect to start the movie
If you prefer, you can click to start the movie. This requires one more step, setting an On Click animation effect.
1. On the Slide Show menu, click Custom Animation. The Custom Animation task pane appears on the right side of the PowerPoint window.

2. Click the movie object (the rectangle) to select it.

3. In the Custom Animation task pane, click Add Effect, point to Entrance and then click Appear.
74b0140.gif
You have added an On Click effect. The animation effect you added is the one with the Green star next to it and a gray rectangle around it. If it doesn't have a gray rectangle, click it to select it. Your Custom Animation task pane should look like the picture below (except with the name of your movie in the list).

c6baa5b.gif
4. The last step is to move that animation up to the top of the effects list.
To do this, make sure the animation effect is selected, and then click the Up Re-order arrow at the bottom of the Custom Animation task pane. Or simply click and drag the animation effect to the top of the effects list.

5. Your effects list should now look like this:
b128f39.gif

6. You are done. Test this to make sure it works by starting the slide show.
(On the Slide Show menu, click View Show.) When you advance to the slide with the movie, you should not see the movie. When you click the slide, the movie zooms to full screen and plays. When it finishes playing, you are returned to the same slide. Click to advance to the next slide.

My hp compaq nx9010 notebook is no longer displaying the color black on the Windows xp start up page or on some of my powerpoints and videos. The color black is replaced by a redish color.


It seems that someone changed the desktop background color. point the mouse somewhere in the middle of the desktop, (away from any icons) and right click the mouse, a menu will appear with several options. The bottom one says properties. Click that. Once done another (more advanced) menu will appear with several tabs at the top. Click on the second to last tab, labled, "Appearance". Once in this tab. Toward the bottom right side of this screen you will see 2 buttons one atop another labled, "Effects", (on top), and, "Advanced", (below). Click the advanced button. A new window will pop up with the first option being desktop in a drop-down menu. To it's immediate right you will see "color 1" with a drop-down menu directly below it. That is where you will select the new background, (desktop) color. Once you have selected the new color, click OK, then apply on the remaining screen, then OK once the color is set.

Itunes


Hey 0836,

If the error message you are seeing reads as "QuickTime failed to initialize. Error # - 2096" you may wish to turn off Compatibility Mode for QuickTime, as doing so may resolve this problem.

You should be able to disable Compatibility Mode by doing the following:

1) Right-click on the QuickTime Player program and choose the "Properties" option from the menu that appears. Normally the application is kept in the C:\Program Files\QuickTime directory, but may differ if you chose to have the program installed onto another hard drive or in another directory.

2) Once in the "Properties" menu, click on the "Compatibility" tab.

3) Uncheck the box that says "Run this program in compatibility mode" if it is currently selected.

4) Click on the "Apply" button.


If QuickTime was not initially in Compatibility Mode, and you still receive an error message prompting you that iTunes requires Windows 2000 or later (or prompts you to make sure that compatibility mode is disabled in iTunes.exe), you may wish to try the following instead:

1) Shut down iTunes.

2) Click on the "Start" menu, then on "My Computer." You can generally also double-click on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop as an alternative.

3) Once in "My Computer," open the drive where Windows XP is installed. Typically this is the C:\ drive, but please remember that your configuration may slightly differ if you have multiple hard drives.

4) Open the "Program Files" folder.

5) Open the "iTunes" program folder.

6) Next, right-click on the iTunes program - this may be listed as either iTunes or iTunes.exe. Once you have done so, choose "Properties" from the menu that appears.

7) Click on the "Compatibility" tab, and uncheck the option to run in Compatibility Mode if it is selected.

8) Click "OK" to accept the new settings.


One of these two solutions should hopefully resolve the problem, but I would strongly suggest visting Apple's support homepage for more information if you are unsure of how to proceed.

http://www.apple.com/support/

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

How to download microsoft powerpoint on windows vista


sounds like soemthing has broken the file association with the files you are trying to open in explorer. 
First of all, make sure it IS a powerpoint file you are trying to open. 
second of all, there is a method in which you can try to recreate the file association: 
1.) right click on the file you are trying to open and choose Open With -> Choose program
2.) if PowerPoint Viewer is in the list, click on it, make sure "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" is enabled, then press OK. the program will open and read the file. exit out of it and open the file again to test to see if this works. 
If it isn;t on the "programs" list of the Open With Menu, you will have to find it. Click on "Browse", search for the program, select "open", make sure "always use the seelcted program" is checked off, and press OK. close the application thats starts and run again to test. 
Hope this helps, alsthough this was posted a far ways back.
