MS installer invariably asks for a product KEY 25 (approx) alphanumeric characters in groups of 5, on a sticker on the cd/dvd case, not the product number
If you are using the product number it will fail, if you have thrown away the sticker for your valid product contact MS, and verify the purchase and they will assist you to register your product.
If you cannot verify proof of purchase, it might be harder.
If the MS program you are installing is a demo version its time limited period may be expired
MS are pretty good about it actually,

I just bought this brand spankin' new laptop and it has Vista on it... then the MS Office Home/Student 2007 and that kept asking me for a Prod Key... I tried the one on the laptop.


Hi there!
You should ask your laptop retailer if the Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 that is installed in your computer is a full version or just a trial version. Normally, if that is a full version, it should come with an installation disc and the product key should be on the package where the disc is inserted.
Hope this helps.

HOW TO ACTIVATE MY PRODUCT KEY


Hi Sumanth

Try these methods are as follows:
  • Start an Office program that has not been activated.
  • Click Activate Product on the Help menu in any Office program.
  • Run the Office Activation Wizard outside an Office program.

    To do this, click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Office Tools, and then click Activate Product.

    Note This method is not available in Microsoft Office 2003 and the 2007 Microsoft Office system.
For Access 2007, for Excel 2007, for PowerPoint 2007, and for Word 2007, there are two methods to access the Office Activation Wizard. These methods are as follows:
  • Start an Office program that has not been activated.
  • Click Activate on the Resources tab. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click the Microsoft Office Button, and then click Program Name Options.
    2. Click the Resources tab, and then click Activate.

Hi, I've been logging onto microsoft office word and now it's telling me to put a product key number in. I put the product key number in from the bottom of the laptop but it's telling me it's incorrect....


Dear Kisoccergirl, the number on the bottom of your laptop isn't a valid Word product key. If your software is Microsoft genuine you can get the serial key from the software cd case or from the product manual.
Please ask if you need more help. Regards, Peter

I have installed ms office onto vista but want a product key


If what you are saying is that you are installing the same copy of MS Office 2007 onto your new system that you installed on your old system the problem is most likely Microsoft's product key verification process. This is especially true if the source of the software was OEM [purchased with the computer, as opposed to off the shelf separately].

When you install MS Office on your system it takes a 'snapshot' of your system, creating a profile in the process. This profile is sent over the internet to the MS verification servers when authenticating your product key.

When you installed it onto your new system it sent the profile for the new system with the product key for verification. Microsoft reads this as the ONE paid for copy being installed on two machines simultaneously. This is a violation of their EULA.

If this is the situation you have to contact Microsoft [use the telephone activation option], tell them the source of the software, and explain you are moving the software to a different computer and NOT using it on any other system beside the one you are moving it to.

Good luck with this and I hope this helped.

I lost my product key . i have microsoft office 2007 profesnal.what can i do for activetion ?


Here is, how you can get your key back.

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/help/HA011508341033.aspx

To obtain a new product key for your Office program in the United States, call 1-800-936-5700 and speak to a Microsoft customer service representative. Outside of the United States, call the number that appears in the activation wizard.
When you call Microsoft for a new Office product key, have the following items available for the customer service representative:
  • The product CD-ROM
  • The computer on which you want to install Office
  • The readable parts of your original product key (if available)
  • The ProductID information in the registry

Did you try installing older version of office by mistake, if so that would be the reasoning that is asking you for the serial no. Try to uninstall the ofice program.

I have a gateway computer with microsoft excel. To setup, I need a product key number. The number on the back of my computer does not work. It shows invalid number when typed in. How can I fix this...


All original buys come with the installation CD's of Microsoft Office as well as the OS, check the cover of that CD. If you are unable to find it you can contact gateway and let them know the S/N of your computer and they might help you.
You are trying to put in the OS numbers into the office installation this will not work. You need Microsoft Office keys, please refer to the place you bought it.
Thanks
