Question about Acer Aspire One PC Notebook

1 Answer

Microsoft Word Suite

I purchased an Acer Aspire One for my daughter for Christmas. I have a Microsoft Word Suite 2003 disc that I purchased a few years ago. Before purchasing the notebook for Christmas, I purchased an update version of Microsoft Office 2007 for my own computer (which was expensive). Since the Aspire One doesn't have a CD-ROM, is there any way to get the Word suite on the notebook without having to spend any more money?

One solution is USB memory stick.

You can copy contents of a CD to USB drive, and then run the installation from there.

You will need memory stick large enough to support this data (512 MB or 1 GB, it depends).

Create a folder named Word on USB disk, then copy all the files and folders from a CD to this folder.

Insert USB disk in Aspire One and run setup.exe from this folder you created.

I need a product key to use Microsoft Word 2007.


If you purchased a physical copy of the Microsoft Office Suite, the key should be printed on the outside of the case that the office CDs came in.

If you purchased a digital copy of the Microsoft Office Suite, the key should be on your receipt or in your email.

If you did not purchase the software, you can purchase the newest version here: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/word/ or from your local office supply store, electronics store, or wal-mart/Target/K-mart type store.

If you are looking to get Office functionality WITHOUT purchasing the software (read: free), please try a free, legal, open source software from openoffice.org. This software is completely free, is meant to be distributed to the public for free, is regularly updated, and is supported very well. It will allow you to read and edit microsoft word (and excel, powerpoint, and publisher) files.

Product key for microsoft office on Acer Aspire computer


Hi There,

Because of the tough economic climate, Microsoft is finally installing fully activated MS Office products on some computers cooperating with some brands of laptops to entice buyers. This has only happened in the last 2 months.

For your situation you really only have 2 viable choices. 1. Purchase the key from Microsoft or, 2.You can download OpenOffice.org's free Office Suite. It is fully compatible with all MS Office documents and has programs equivalent to MS Word and Excel. Documents in OpenOffice can also be read by people with fully acitvated versions of MS Office.

There is one other option that I've seen but might not fit your "comfort" level. In my area, people who cannot afford to purchase an MS Office key at full price often post a request ad on the local Craigslist asking for someone to sell them a key from a retail purchase MS Office where 3 computers can be activated but the original purchaser only used one of the activations. Be sure that if you do this, it is the exact version as your trial version, or use the other persons disc to do an upgrade as their key will be tied to their disc in many cases.

Best Wishes
