Apparently,programs for letter writing,composing certain forms etc.,are already installed.However,I don't know how to access this info.. I did read,somewhere,that I had to "enter the 24 digit/letter code to access the program(s,)but have yet to find anything remotely fitting the description(s) of what I need. I consider(ed) myself-relatively-intelligent--BUT--- Thanks for,at least.trying to help me. Sincerely, Ellie Taylor Ellskin@aol.com

Hmm, I tried to answer this, but nothing posted, will try again...

If you are talking about the Microsoft Office suite, then the key you are looking for is the license key required to use the software, if you purchased the software the sticker should be on your computer, or in the box the computer came in. But do not confuse the Windows 2000 key with the Office key, these will be different.

However, you may not have a key at all as larger computer makers, HP, Dell, etc, will install a trial version of the software to try and get you to buy the full thing when the trial runs out.

If you don't find the key and need to purchase a new one, which can be found at your local retailer, you should ask them first if the latest version of Microsoft office will run on Windows 2000 as I think there is a compatability issue and it may not run.

PS (I must admit it is strange for a PC bought in 2006 to come with Windows 2000 on it, Windows XP was brought out in 2002 and thought it would have been hard to buy 2000 at this point)

The 25 digit # is the license for the MS Office suite that came with the software. Instead of paying Microsoft a fee for Office, download the FREE OpenOffice. It is an Word Processor, Excel like program and everything else that is included in MS Office.
Read the info and download OpenOffice from this link:

The letter code you are refering to sounds like a registration code... either there is a sticker on the machine that has that code or you need to purchase the program... which program is it anyways ?

i suspect you are trying to use microsoft word

Hi
I assume your talking about Microsoft Office, the software needs such code in installation.
Look into start -> all programs are you able to find Office from there?
You should see Microsoft word, excel, powerpoint and access. If you don't see these the software is most likley not installed.
Do you have a CD to install it from? or what is the name of the software?

it does appear that even create 4 didn't have windows 7 support.

NO OS OF HP COMPAQ


If your computer does not have an operating system then you will need to purchase one. You can still buy Windows XP but with Windows 7 coming out very soon it would be wiser to pick up a copy of Vista with a free upgrade coupon to Windows 7. Or you can run a linux o/s if you a famaliar with linux. Ubuntu I believe is a free linux o/s that you can download to a flashdrive and install to your pc. Hope these tips help.

I need driver for hp 6l pro printer


You can find it here, if the desired operating system doesn't have drivers to download then it's because the operating system already includes the drivers... for example Windows XP already comes with 6L pro drivers included. If your having trouble in XP you might want to try downloading the drivers for windows 2000.
