Question about Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 for PC

1 Answer

PowerPoint 2007 causes PC lockup after being used for several hours. We're seeing this on multiple PCs, so it's not the hardware's fault, it must be a problem in PowerPoint itself. Files are in .pptx format.

Ahhh, thats powerpoints tendancy to hog the memory and not release it leading to the machine crashing or locking up as you observed. Microsoft have a fix for this you can download, I used it last year in 250 machines. So far so good. Best of luck.

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 have a malata notebook pc which i bought from china. Now it kept hanging after i work on it for 10 minute.i change the memory, format the hard drive and do sort of thing. what can i do.


Once it freezes up, have you tried pressing the CTRL + ALT + DEL? If the CTRL + ALT + DEL did not work, then its a hardware lockup. Hardware lockups are usually problems with hardware, failing memory being the common cause.

Though you change the memory, that does not mean that the memory is working correctly. Try testing the memory, use a bootable CD to start and run your computer. let it run for several hours and see if it reports any memory problems.

If everthing checks out ok, there are some more Operating system idenpendent ways to isolate the problem. Contact a technician to see if the problem is the hardware or the software.

Have a good day!

Has the powerpoint document been saved as an office 2007 document or as a prior version? in office 2007 in order to open it in 2003 it must be saved as a prior version of office. You can download a patch to read newer versions, but that is not always the most reliable process.

Freezing up


A few things to try. Check the event logs on your PC for Hard drive errors. If the lockups are random they could be caused by bad blocks on your drive in a paging or system file. If you see disk errors, replace the drive immediately and make sure to keep proper backups. Next, update all drivers, especially the video driver. Often lockups will be caused by Video driver corruption. Dont be scared to install beta versions of drivers for your laptop in an attempt to resolve the problem. Next, search out a utility boot CD from the internet. There are several, usually running linux but most contain a memory test utility that you want to run for a long period of time (several hours) to see if after a stress period you start getting memory errors. Next, search for speedfan on google and install it to monitor the temperature on your processor, this problem could be caused by dust buildup on the processor heat sync or cooling fan. Generally it would take some time to have this problem lock up the system, however, after the first lock up and reboot subsequent lockups would happen more quickly. Many laptop repair depots will do a service for under $100 where they will dissassemble the machine, clean the heat sink and fan (or replace it) and apply new thermal grease.
