Maybe the audio file is not one of the supported formats? See Compatible multimedia file formats - PowerPoint - Microsoft Office

Perhaps try another converter? Since it was in a non-supported format before, perhaps it wasn't properly converted.

Are the versions of powerpoint different? Does your laptop have updated audio drivers and your pc doesn't? (Bit of guess work here)

Embedded music files in PP have to be .wav format. There is a tweak to use .mp3 by fooling PP with a .wav header: PowerPoint – Embed MP3 files
