System details: Pentium 4 HT, 4GB RAM, Win XP....meets all requirements listed for Lightroom 3.
Slideshow play / preview displays blank page, sometimes even crashes my system. Tried different templates, still no luck. Here's what I did to create a Slideshow:
Slideshow module - created Slideshow collection set - create new Slideshow - set as target collection - library module - selected photos, around 12 - added to Slideshow collection by using shortcut key B - double click Slideshow collection - now in Slideshow module - click play
No options changed in right panel, why is the Slideshow not working? Slideshow has never worked for me since I bought the software.

My first guess would be an outdated video driver. I'd try updating that. Determine what video card you have and go directly to the manufacturers website (nVidia or ATI/AMD) and download the latest driver.
