Hello jlhouchin,

I don't know if anyone can be of much help in just giving you a key for your office disc. You can try checking with Microsoft for a replacement key, but I don't know how far you'll get.

Until then, perhaps give Openoffice a try. It's free, and fully compatible with Microsoft office files:

The computer need product key

If you have purchase a genuine copy that information is on the case or inside the case or on the disc. If it is an old disc and you have lost the code ring Microsoft and explain the situation and they will have it on record from when you first installed the program onto your computer.

I lost my product key. I had to repartition my computer and when I put office on it asked for the product key but i don't have it anymore

If you have the disc look at the back of the disc cover you will have a long alpha numeric code that will be your activation code. if you don't have it call Microsoft and they will be able to help you in this.

My spellchecker doesn't work in microsoft works, word. it says i need to re install works but my computer came without a cd. help

The only thing that you can do is see if you anyone has a copy or you will have to buy one. There are always deals going going on I got the student edition for 29.99 from best buy all i had to do is show my student id that sale is over. Companies are always putting out different promos. Install is easy put disc in and it will uninstall old and then install new. Make sure that if you get a copy from someone you have the key code.

When i put a 360 disk in the screen says that this disc must be used in a 360

This can mean a couple things.
1) Incorrect DVD-key-
EVERYSINGLE Xbox360 motherboard is "married" to it's dvd drive with a unique dvd-key. If an idiot attempted to mod the console, or "repaired" it by putting in a new dvd drive. The key is lost forever, and nobody other than Microsoft can fix it. (It'll cost you like $30 more, just to buy a new 360 Vs paying them to repair it)

2) The laser is dead/dying
The optical laser in the dvd drive needs to be replaced, (or tweaked for a temporary fix) A brand new laser costs $8-$13 off of eBay with free shipping included. Email me at for more detailed instructions or part numbers.

I have bought Microsoft FSX recently but i dont find the product

Hi nsm_591,

I'm sorry to hear that you lost your key. I found this page on Microsoft's site talking about problems with keys. I know that the header says it's about invalid keys, but if you read it, you'll find the info about lost keys.

According to Microsoft, you need to have your CD in front of you, then go here to contact their technical support. Enter your region, then your product, and follow the directions. The first page I linked to says that you may have to give them the number that is located on the inner circle on the disc. They also state that a fee may apply to obtain a product key.

I know that when I have lost product keys in the past, they also required me to send them a scan of my CD, to prove I have a valid copy. But that may be a thing of the past.

Best of luck and thanks for using FixYa!

Lost '25 character code' for install of cd to hp 6515.

The code you are referring to is probably the license key for Microsoft Outlook. If you have lost the key you can buy Microsoft Outlook from any good computer stores. The other application you will need for Outlook to sync with the ipaq is Microsoft Activesync which is free and does not need a license key. You can download activesync from Microsoft website or from the cd.
