    Question PowerPoint music stops in playback after 15-20 seconds

    My partner makes PowerPoint Presentations with music. They play fine on everybody elses machines. On hers for several months the music stops after a few seconds (15-20). She is using Office 2003 (she tried 2010 and did not like it). She runs Windows 7 and this has continued even after a hard disc failure which required a new instalation, on a new hard disc ,of both Windows 7 and Office 2003 a month ago. This seems to be a setting on her machine or perhaps the instalation disc has a problem. Any suggestions would be greatly welcomed. Arava

    If you log in on her machine do they work okay? If so it would indicate something in her user profile. You may want to recreate it.

    You could also check the file associations for her music player. Ensure you've got the correct player for the type of file, and possibly re-install that. Would likely be a good idea to uninstall the player, run a registry cleaner to remove any left over association info, then re-install the player.
