PowerPoint crashes when you use media in your files

Last Updated: November 30, 2018


PowerPoint may crash when you open or use a PowerPoint file that contains media, such as an image or video.

This can occur if you have an older Intel 510, 520, or 620 graphics driver installed on your PC.


Update your Intel graphics card driver to the latest version if you have one of the Intel graphics cards listed and you're experiencing PowerPoint crashes.
