    This is realy odd. I am trying to print a power point presentation and my printer prints one blank page and then just craps out. I can print any other document I want. So I did a print preview and ... this is realy strange... the pages are blank but the thumb nail images of the pages to the right are correct.

    I know it is a MicorScoff product but any ideas of what I have done wrong?

    It's been awhile since I have worked with Powerpoint, but it sounds like you may have inadvertantly selected to print the notes with the thumbnails or something like that. Go to File>Print and there's options on what to print. Select Slides and you should be ready to go...

    Powerpoint rocks, and is still one of the few areas that M$ beats apple hands down.

    When you open your print dialog box and just click print it should print one large slide per page. If you click copies and pages you will be presented with the standard print options, but also one called "Microsoft Powerpoint". This is where all of the print options for the slides are.

    Hope this helps!

    I (we) assume you are able to print everything else ok?! From other programs, etc.?
