    When Office is preinstalled it is usually a trial version. When the trial period is up, you either have to purchase a separate program from a retail store, or go through Microsoft online and "upgrade" your trial version to the full version. Either way it will cost you. You might consider the Home and Student version. It contains Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. It is usually around $130, but sometimes it is on sale for around $100.



    Having said all that, if you paid extra for Office when you bought your computer, you need to contact Acer or the store where you purchased the computer. They should provide a product key.



    One final note: Should you buy the software, make sure you uninstall the trial version through the Control Panel before installing the new software. Good luck.

I have purchased an acer aspire 4738g laptop from uae, microsoft office was already loaded, but unable to install. I get a error message product key mismatch. But I am sure i have given the same product...


If you are using the product key on the underside of the laptop, this is almost certainly the code for your installation of Microsoft Windows, which is your Operating System and does not include Microsoft Office. Consequently, this code will not activate your Office installation.

The existing Office installation is likely to have been a trial version that was installed as part of the package when the laptop was new. You need to acquire a valid product key for the version of Microsoft Office you require, in order for it to properly activate.

Alternatively, you can install a non-Microsoft product, such as Open Office (www.openoffice.org), which is completely free of charge (although you can make voluntary donations to support continued development of the software.

Hi, the product key mentioned is not the one on the bottom of the machine. This is your windows key.
Unfortunately, Microsoft love to obtain more money from you, Office 2010 is pre-installed on your machine with Windows by the manufacturer and you need to purchase a new key for Office.
I hope this helps

I have a laptop of ACER which has window 7. Microsoft Office 2007 is already install in this laptop. But i cant run because it demands product key. I already used trial product which had limit of 25 times....


Just because the software is pre installed, doesn't mean you have the full version.

I'd imagine you have a laptop with a trial version of the software installed. You may have been mis-sold this and assumed you have the full version.

You need to buy a product key. The cheapest fix is to uninstall your version of Microsoft Office Standard, and purchase a copy of Microsoft Office Home and Student for about £70.

You could always use OpenOffice which is free, and allows you to use Microsoft Office documents.

HOW TO GET PRODUCT KEY FOR 2007 GENUINE WINDOW 7 IHAVE BOUGHT NEW LAPTOP WITH GENUINE WINDOW 7 AFTER 20 DAYS ALL THE EXCEL WINDOW STOPED WORKING WHEN I OPEN IT ASK FOR PRODUCT


If your Windows 7 is running fine then its okay. You have to determine that the product key is required by which software for example in your case it can be the "Microsoft Office" because "Excel" is a part of Microsoft office that you may have installed by yourself which is not genuine and its asking for the key.
If the message that pops up is not from Microsoft office then:
You do not have a Genuine Windows in your Laptop.

Please Take your laptop back to the outlet where you have purchased it and tell them with the purchase document (Like receipt and whatever the Warranty document) you have a counterfeit Windows 7 and you want a piece of Laptop that has Genuine Windows 7.

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

It is now asking for a product key. The one i have is not working


Hi,

All laptops and desktops come with MS Office preinstalled and are only trial versions. When the trial runs out you are then required to purchase a new product key from Microsoft.

The majority of the MS Office software will be disabled unless you buy the key.

The only other thing that I can suggest is OpenOffice. OpenOffice is completely free to use and recognizes all MS Office files and allows you to modify them.

Get Open Office by clicking on the link below >>>>>>

Prosuct key


First you buy the product, the key comes with the purchase!
If you have a bootleg copy of the software, there is nothing that can be done for you.
You must not have the program installed on other computers.
You must purchase an original Microsoft CD.
No temporary product key is required for the trial period, unless that has changed in Office 2007.
Did you purchase a new computer with Office 2007 installed already?
If so all you need to do is pay Microsoft for the software product key, and install just the product key as normal.
Re-installation of the software is not required.

Cont'd-microsoft 2007.... can this be uninstalled and a fresh one installed??


More than likely unless you paid an additional fee at the time of purchase to have Microsoft Office then it is a trial version which is installed on your laptop. It may ,if it hasn't already, allow to use it 10-20 times before you can no longer use it fully (I say fully because it will allow you to view files but not alter them if you do not input the product key)

And yes you can let the trial expire and later purchase the full version. It would be easiest to purchase the product key direct from microsoft that way all you have to do is input the key when it asks for it...once you enter the product key you will have full access. This is because the full version is already installed on your computer..just waiting for you to input the product key.

P.S. there are other options such as open source software i.e. openoffice.org

Please rate my response..and...Good Luck!!!!
