Part VIII: Appendixes > Resolving Problems

Resolving Problems

Some problems you can solve yourself, by determining the cause of the problem and eliminating any contributing factors. Most problems you encounter in PowerPoint will probably be memory-related, even if you have a great deal of memory (RAM) on your computer. In addition, because PowerPoint is a graphical application and most of your slides contain several graphical elements (pictures, textures, and colors), printing and display can also be problem areas, if your printer doesn't have enough memory or your video card isn't powerful enough.

When you consider solving a problem yourself, be honest with yourself—do you feel confident changing your computer's configuration? Are you fluent with the Control Panel? If you begin tinkering in one dialog box or another, do you completely understand the nature and ramifications of all the changes and settings with which you're working? If the answers to these questions are not Yes on all counts, don't try to solve the problem on your own—call for help.
