slide transition timing off

PROBLEM REPORT

Powerpoint version now in use: 2007

Version the file was created in or opened in since, if any: 2007

Windows version: Vista

Other hardware involved (printer, etc):running on HP laptop with AMD Athlon
Dual-Core QL-62 Processor with 3 GB of RAM

Description of problem: I have a large slide show presentation, with
pictures and music and customized timing (to coordinate music and slides).
It was working fine, but recently when I opened it and try to play the
presentation, the slide transitions are slower than the settings, which
throws it them out of sync with the music. For example, most of the slides
are set to transition at 2 second intervals, but when I play it now it is
more like 3 to 4 second intervals. The music plays at proper speed.

How do I get the slideshow to play with the slide transitions at the speed I
have set for each slide?

Here's what I've already tried to solve the problem: I tried to reset each
slide transition setting and re-save the file with a new name. I tried to
"clean-up"
hard-drive from anything that might slow it down (temp files, adware,
spyware, etc.)

By the way there is an article that talks about how to timing your powerpoint presentation automatically. http://www.ppt-to-dvd.com/learningc...g-automatic-powerpoint-presentations.html#149

Start PowerPoint and run through the presentation once.

Then run the show "for real" and see if the timing works out better.

Do understand that PPT doesn't really do accurate timing ... you won't beable
to rely on it switching slides right on the beat of music or anything like
that.  But still it should do a better job than what you've described.

Another thought:  do you have lots of images in the presentation?  How large
are the original images (in pixels, not file size)?
