No Powerpoint in Office 2000 after restoring laptfactory settings

Hi. I have an old Compaq laptop which I now use only for powerpoint presentations. It was slow++ and cluttered so I restored it to factory settings, which includes Office 2000 standard. But now there's no Powerpoint or Excel. I don't recall having this problem when I bought it.
It has all other Office 2000 software.
I put in the Office 2000 CD but it won't recognise the product ID number (which I'd written down before chucking the jewel case out) - there seem to be 5 numbers missing.
I've searched the computer for the correct product ID number but no sign of it.
Can anyone advise?

    Hi bkindle2003
    Thanks for responding. Magical jelly bean  gave me the Windows ME key but not the Office key. I tried opening a Word document and inserting the Office cd but no joy. Any ideas how to find the Office key?

If you still have Office installed, there is a program called "Magic Jelly Bean Key Finder". This should give you both your Windows Product Key and your Office Product Key.

here's the download link for it:

http://magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/

It does not specifically list office 2000, but it may work still since it does work on Office XP -2007.

Let me know if that helps.

I want to open powerpoint presentation.


then, go to format -> slide design, choose to show all documents, and choose the corrupt powerpoint file. now, go to insert -> slides from file, and select the corrupt powerpoint file. make sure you are set to insert all slides, and then import. if that works, great! i suspect, however, that you might crash at that point. if so, try repeating the process, inserting specific slides one by one until you find the problem one. after that, save the file, making sure that fast saves are off (in preferences / save).
if you are unable to open your powerpoint files then try pptx viewer tool. this utility recovers your corrupt and damaged powerpoint presentations (.ppt, .pot, .pps, pptx and ppsx formats) from ms powerpoint files. http://www.pptx.viewertool.com/

Depending on the version of Office that came with your computer you may not have power point. If it's not included then you will need to purchase it before it can be installed. A free alternative to the entire Office line is openoffice.org simply type in www.openoffice.org and download their latest edition. It has a powerpoint type program that is compatible (and should be able to output as PP file types) with PowerPoint. I hope this helps and thank you.

Maybe your laptop have been installed with a trial version of Microsoft Office, you can use the free trial for 6 months. Now, it is expired.

Microsoft powerpoint


Hi there,

Microsoft PowerPoint is a presentation program developed by Microsoft. It is part of the Microsoft Office system, and runs on Microsoft Windows and the Mac OS computer operating systems. The Windows version can run on the Linux operating system, under the Wine compatibility layer.

PowerPoint is widely used by business people, educators, students, and trainers and is among the most prevalent forms of persuasive technology. Beginning with Microsoft Office 2003, Microsoft revised the branding to emphasize PowerPoint's place within the office suite, calling it Microsoft Office PowerPoint instead of just Microsoft PowerPoint. The current versions are Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2007 for Windows and 2008 for Mac.
