    for activation you need to have a valid key..if u believe that u purchased a counterfiet copy then Microsoft may help you otherwise you will have to buy a genuine XP cd...

You need to have valid product key to activate windows, If yyou dont want to install the os again you can also purchase product key from microsoft. 1-800-936-5700
which can be changed on the installed os by using tool call key update tool .

There also ways to activate windows by changing the system time and running a tool but that might cause problems to your Computer and are illegal.

How can i install micro soft word in my lap top without cd installer

Most Windows Operating systems come pre-installed with Microsoft Word. If yours didn't, you should be able to download it from their website.

This is the 60-day trial for it. If you buy it, they will send you a code. If you have already purchased it, you can put it in before you even start the trial.

If this helped, please give me a good rating. It helps a lot!

When you install New Antivirus, after installing, the FIRST thing that it does is search, your entire computer for any traces of Virus, and will deal with them. The BEST AV, is Symantec Corporate, copy Ver 10 & up,, this actually works, is low on system resources, just Google for it, and download,

I have purchased Office Home and Student but i cannot put it on my computer

Unless you are running some non-windows operating system, or some very old computer, or your hard disk drive is full, there is no reason why you cant install office on your pc. What version of the Office are you trying to install, how much disk space is required? Make sure your user account, the one you sign into the computer with has the administrator privileges to add and remove software. These abilities will not be enabled if you are using a guest account or a simple use account. things that might interfere are certain malware and virus infections that prevent the user from installing new applications. You can boot into safemode with network support and download Microsoft Security Essentials from the microsoft website. Make sure when you log on using safemode, you are using an accoun that is equipped with privileges to install software. Install the MSE and run a full scan. Then reboot and log in with an administrator privileged account and try installing your MS Office again. Make sure you have sufficient disk space on your hard drive. If you had a trial version of the software that cam bundled on your computer, you may need to uninstall the trial version first. Also, make sure you CD is not damaged. Try it on another machine to see if it will install, if will not, take the CDROM back place of purchase and ask for an exchange.

Hope this helps FixYa! Please leave me some feedback if any of my solutions were helpful.

What is product key

Your new computer came installed with a free trial. If it is asking for a product key, then the trial is over. I suggest going to eBay and purchasing the software as to purchasing full price. You can get a better dela from there.

Once you get the software in the mail, you can uninstall the trial version that is on you computer and install the new one. It will ask you for the product key, which is located on the Office box that the software come in.

How new is the computer? If you just barely got the PC, then you can run the free trial untill it ends. I think they give you 90 days.

Installing MS Office 97 Pro, if I have trial of 2007.

Hi there.
Providing the disk you had with your old computer has the product key with it you should have no problems at all installing it, just make sure you uninstall the MS office 2007 first before you install MS office 97.

Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Keep the old system . Instal the new one leaving the old intact. Thsi is called a dual boot. When you turn it on it will give you the option of which version to run.  When insstall the new OS Beta  it shoudl give you the options of :"Overwrite windows?" Say no.  Then go ahead and install.    As to the question about your existing windows. Ifyou have not the reinstall cd's or the reinstal someone else on your hard driver, and you loose you present windows. You will usually have to purchase either the reinstal cd's or a new windows version.   I myself,of would make sure to have or make them before instaling anything else.

Installatin problem xp

do you still have the other hard disk? Is xp installed there?
Then you can use the old disk as master and the new disk as slave disk.
Don't you have another hard drive? Then you just need your xp cd and put it in your cd drive. start computer and installation will automatically start. Make sure BIOS is set to boot from cd

if you need more help, just reply
