I updated from 3.5.0 to 184.108.40.206 with no upgrade install problems noted. Edited a presentation - no problems. Tried to run the slide show and got lots of problems - blank screen, distorted text, no images.
Tried uninstall and cleaned out leftover program files, registry, etc. Reinstalled clean and had the same problems.
Uninstalled and cleaned again and reinstalled 3.5.0 - now it works.
Looks like a broke in 3.5.1 (Needs a little better regression testing ???) I saw nothing in the release notes that seems to be in this area.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

This is a bug with hardware acceleration in 3.5.1, if you disable it, the slideshows will work again.

So, how do you disable hardware acceleration in 3.5.1? No options to do so in any of the menus available (options, settings, etc.). Slide show does not show slides!

Was that a pptx file?
Yes, LibreOffice does need more QA people to test for regressions (and bugs in general).
