Firelite is formatted for mac only, how do i reformat it to windows or back to the original?

If you are reformatting the disk on a Mac, then open the Disk Utility, then click reformat, and choose the format FAT32. If you have it connected to your PC, go to my computer, right click and select reformat, then choose FAT32.


Hope this helps!

I purchased microsoft office 2007 back on April 7th, 2007. I lost my key code as it was purchased via email through the college I am now attending. I need it to download it on my new PC since the...

Option #1. Depending on who your e-mail provider (Yahoo/Hotmail/AOL) the e-mail you are referring to may still be available UNLESS you deleted.

Option #2. When software is loaded on PC/Laptops and the license key is entered to register the product, the key code is written to the hard drive. There is software that can read ALL licenses on a hard drive. Maybe a technician can retrieve the key for you after looking @ your old hard drive?

Option #3. Customer Service @ Microsoft may help? They may have your name on file IF you provided that info?

Option #4. OpenOffice is the FREE office productivity suite. It will read many Microsoft Office files.

When I brought my laptop to the computer shop where it was bought for reformat because it was infected by a virus, and after it was reformatted, the Microsoft office was gone. Now, I can't type or edit any...

Hi Gabriel

If a PC is reformatted uoy must reinstall your Microsoft package to be able to edit or write existing files. You need to reinstall everything.
The guy who did this must tell you the consequences of a reformatting, but he or she did this probably not.

You are in deep trouble now if you dont have the original disk - Microsoft Office installation disk/CD.

If you dont have this you could use the program Open Office.
It is free to use and is compatible with Microsoft Office.
It can be found here
Download the program - install it and you are up and running again.

The person who have reformattet your PC is amateur. Virus can be removed by using different scanners etc.
I recomend you to install virus protection on your mashine as fast as possible.
You can find virus protection programs which are free to use. Some of the brest programs are AVG or Avast.
Just serach for these programs on the internet and you will find what you need.

I'm a volunteer worker with refugee-education. My office 2007 was installed (access-excell-outlook-word-powerpoint-publisher-oneNote) when I bought my laptop ACER 7720G in Belgium two years ago. I am now...

If you have bought your laptop with "Genuine Windows Operating sytem" and "Genuine microsoft office 2007" software the Vendor should have given you the Recovery CD for ACER (or the Recovery CD embedded on the Hard drive),and the CD for Microsoft Office 2007 including the "Licence stickers" with the products attached to your Laptop. If you don't have them, the vendor have short-changed you!

Your options, either you buy a key from microsoft, buy a new copy online.
Google "Office 2007 torrent" and take your chances.

Read the threads from Fixya,


Hope it helps.

What is the different of microsoft 1997 to 2007

The main difference between MIcrosoft Office 1997 and 2007 is the addition of features that you may or may not need. If you are using 97 ok, great. If you are wondering if you should spend money on 2007, you should go to and read up on it. The other key difference is that 2007 needs a more powerful computer with a bigger hard drive. How old is your current computer?

My microsoft office student 2007 didnt come with a product key at all

Do you have the Original copy Office 2007 CD? If yes, the Product Key is the 25 digit label at the back of the CD Case. If you just bought the Office 2007 and it does not have the product key, demand for your product key and if they will not give an original Office Key report to Microsoft.

Sorry you Cant change back SP2 is now in charge. You would have to reformat the hard drive and reinstall the original OEM (original Equipment Manufacture) program. Sp 2 is fine . Until you get updated by Microsoft to SP3. Bios=Basic Information Operating System.

Hp Pavilion 6701 desktop with ME. Installed Xubuntu OS and removed ME. Want to reinstall ME but recovery disc won't work.

Hard disk needs to be reformatted--start machine and press correct key when "setup" appears in first dialog. Remove hard drive in first screen, then reinstall. Restart computer, should now say: "operating system not found". You need original Microsoft OS disk to reformat drive and reinstall ME. All previous information on hard disk will be lost with this procedure. Recovery disk is used with original OS before Ubuntu. If you don't have original MS disk, suggest going to XP.

Microsoft office

If your version of Microsoft Office 2003 came from a legitimate CD, then re-run the CD. If it is not taking your product registration key, then call Microsoft and have them override the blockage. I had to do the same when I wiped my hard drive clean - I found their tech support in this area to be most helpful.
