No Powerpoint in Office 2000 after restoring laptfactory settings

Hi. I have an old Compaq laptop which I now use only for powerpoint presentations. It was slow++ and cluttered so I restored it to factory settings, which includes Office 2000 standard. But now there's no Powerpoint or Excel. I don't recall having this problem when I bought it.
It has all other Office 2000 software.
I put in the Office 2000 CD but it won't recognise the product ID number (which I'd written down before chucking the jewel case out) - there seem to be 5 numbers missing.
I've searched the computer for the correct product ID number but no sign of it.
Can anyone advise?

    Hi bkindle2003
    Thanks for responding. Magical jelly bean  gave me the Windows ME key but not the Office key. I tried opening a Word document and inserting the Office cd but no joy. Any ideas how to find the Office key?

If you still have Office installed, there is a program called "Magic Jelly Bean Key Finder". This should give you both your Windows Product Key and your Office Product Key.

here's the download link for it:

http://magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/

It does not specifically list office 2000, but it may work still since it does work on Office XP -2007.

Let me know if that helps.

Message in Powerpoint: Part of the file is missing. How to fix it?


your powerpoint file seems to be severely corrupted. You may try to open this file in PowerPoint Fix Toolbox http://www.powerpoint.fixtoolbox.com/

If if it useless follow the steps 1) Open a new presentation and use Insert --> Slides --> From existing presentation to pull in the slides from the corrupted file. This works about 50% of the time.
2) Try using the Clone Me add-in from Microsoft. It may work, it may not.

I want to open powerpoint presentation.


then, go to format -> slide design, choose to show all documents, and choose the corrupt powerpoint file. now, go to insert -> slides from file, and select the corrupt powerpoint file. make sure you are set to insert all slides, and then import. if that works, great! i suspect, however, that you might crash at that point. if so, try repeating the process, inserting specific slides one by one until you find the problem one. after that, save the file, making sure that fast saves are off (in preferences / save).
if you are unable to open your powerpoint files then try pptx viewer tool. this utility recovers your corrupt and damaged powerpoint presentations (.ppt, .pot, .pps, pptx and ppsx formats) from ms powerpoint files. http://www.pptx.viewertool.com/

How to make power presentatio?


  • If Office PowerPoint 2007 is already running, save and close any open presentations, and then exit and restart PowerPoint 2007.

Find links to information about saving presentations in the See Also section.

  • If Office PowerPoint 2007 isn't already running, start it now.
In the Slide pane, you can work directly on individual slides. za001093949.gif Dotted borders identify placeholders, where you can type text or insert pictures, charts, and other objects. za001093950.gif The Slides tab shows a thumbnail version of each full size slide shown in the Slide pane. After you add other slides, you can click a thumbnail on the Slides tab to make the slide appear in the Slide pane. Or you can drag thumbnails to rearrange the slides in your presentation. You can also add or delete slides on the Slides tab. za001093951.gif In the Notes pane, you can type notes about the current slide. You can hand out your notes to your audience or refer to your notes in Presenter view when you give your presentation. Note By default, Office PowerPoint 2007 applies the Blank Presentation template, which appears in the preceding illustration, to new presentations. Blank Presentation is the simplest and most generic of the templates in Office PowerPoint 2007. Blank Presentation is a good template to use when you first start working with PowerPoint because it is straightforward and can be adapted to many presentation types. To create a new presentation that is based on the Blank Presentation template, click the Microsoft Office Button za010077102.gif, click New, click Blank and recent under Templates, and then double-click Blank Presentation under Blank and recent.
After you open the Blank Presentation template, only a small portion of the Notes pane is visible. To see a larger portion of the Notes pane so that you have more room to type in it, do the following:
  1. Point to the top border of the Notes pane.
  2. When the pointer becomes a za010205206.gif, drag the border up to make a little more room for your speaker notes, as shown in the following illustration.

Name and save your presentation As with any software program, it is a good idea to name and save your presentation right away and then to save your changes frequently while you work:
  1. Click the Microsoft Office Button za010077102.gif, point to Save As, and then do one of the following:
    • For a presentation that can be opened only in Office PowerPoint 2007, click PowerPoint Presentation.
    • For a presentation that can be opened in either Office PowerPoint 2007 or earlier versions of PowerPoint, click PowerPoint 97-2003 Presentation.

If you choose this option, you cannot use any of the features that are new in Office PowerPoint 2007.

  1. In the Save As dialog box, in the Save in list, select the folder or other location where you want to save your presentation.
  2. In the File name box, type a name for your presentation, or do nothing to accept the default file name, and then click Save.

Add, rearrange, and delete slides The single slide that is provided automatically in your presentation has two placeholders, one formatted for a title and the other formatted for a subtitle. The arrangement of placeholders on a slide is called a layout. Office PowerPoint 2007 also provides other types of placeholders, such as those for pictures and SmartArt graphics.
When you add a slide to your presentation, you can do the following to choose a layout for the new slide at the same time:
  1. On the Slides tab, click just below the single slide that already appears there.
  2. On the Home tab, in the Slides group, click the arrow next to New Slide.

za001093948.gif The name identifies the content that each layout is designed for. za001093949.gif Placeholders that display colored icons can contain text, but you can also click the icons to automatically insert objects, including SmartArt graphics and clip art.
  1. Click the layout that you want for your new slide.

The new slide now appears both on the Slides tab, where it is highlighted as the current slide, and in the Slide pane. Repeat this procedure for each new slide that you want to add.

Tip If you want your new slide to have the same layout that the preceding slide has, you can just click New Slide instead of clicking the arrow next to it.

Not able to work in powerpoint


Maybe your laptop have been installed with a trial version of Microsoft Office, you can use the free trial for 6 months. Now, it is expired.
So you have to buy one to activate your current version.

I need to be able to put lesson plans into powerpoint form at home.


If you don't have PowerPoint at home you can use Google Docs to create a PowerPoint presentation, and then download it for use at school. You can also download and install OpenOffice, a free office program that is very compatible with Microsoft Office apps.

PowerPoint Slide Show View Distortion


Well not knowing what is causing the problem, can i suggest a bit of an extreme but very effective method?

You will want to restart your pc before logging into the other account. That will allow you to rename it without problems.
Login to your laptop using an administrator account. Rename your profile to oldprofile.old or similar.

It sounds like its one of those lovely settings Microsoft likes to save in the \applicaiton data\ area of a profile.
