when I click on Lightroom Slideshow, it crashes. My driver is ATI Radeon 4250. Is this driver supported by Lightroom? All the other modules work great.

Is the driver up to date? It may help if we could see your Lightroom System Info. Launch Lightroom, and select Help > System Info... and copy/paste the text in a reply.

Yes, my driver is up to date.
When I went to Help, System info, it also crashed. I can see the System info in the background for about 5 seconds and then the popup goes on top of it that says "load library failed error 126". Then the whole message disappears in about 10 more seconds, and Lightroom closes. All the other modules work correctly.

A long shot perhaps, but try installing Apple Quicktime. LR seems to use parts of this program to run Slideshow.

I tried that. I already have Quicktime on my PC. I still get the "Loadlibrary failed error 126. The module cannot be found."

"Loadlibrary failed error 126. The module cannot be found." means that it tries to load some dynamic link library (DLL), probably some driver, and the Windows could not find it. 

Try uninstall the display driver that you have and try to reinstall the latest again. See https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-performance/error-loadlibrary-failed....  It might be possible to try the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dependency_Walker to figure out what DLL is missing.
