    Are you trying to reinstall Windows? If so, are you trying to reinstall with the original restore CD that came with the laptop?

The version of windows you are installing does not match the Key on the laptop ... you cannot use the key on the laptop with a retail version of the OS ... only the origional OEM version ... obtain the OEM recovery disk from the manufacturer of the laptop

My product key is invalid.......... pls help . the product key given at the bottom is invalid when i typed it to the microsoft office


If you are using the key on the bottom of your laptop that is the problem. You need to find the key that was on the box or the packaging for the software.

If you did use the key off the packaging then you need to contact Microsoft and get a new key!

Telling me I have enter in valid product key and I have used it


Hi there!

This is probably happening because your copy of Office 2003 was activated when you first installed it. Once that key is used, it expires and can't be used to activate again unless you call Microsoft and have them validate your copy of Office 2003.

The number for "Activation by Telephone" should be displayed during the first few steps of the installation of Office 2003.

You will be prompted to enter the product key on the phone, which of course will still not be valid. You will be transfered to a Microsoft representative who will help you. They might ask you for the key again just to double-check. You can tell them that you had to reinstall Windows and Office 2003 because of your computer problems. They will ask you a few more clarifying questions and will either reactivate your key or provide a new one to you.

I hope this helps! Feel free to reply if you have any questions.

Request for product key keeps popping up on my laptop. I looked on the bottom of my laptop and found the product key, however, the message keeps popping up that the key is invalid. Where else could I look,...


Click on "Telephone Support" in that window. You must call Microsoft to validate this copy of Windows! No other way - short of purchasing another valid product key - they're usually arount $150.00+

First : NEVER post your key online !!!! then anyone can use it and activate it!!!!

Did you get the install CD's for Office? if not the Office you have is a trial and you have to buy it and get a key.

For windows change the key to the one on the bottom of the machine .

If you have Windows XP you can change it with this software:
