This computer use to have windowsxp it was upgrade to windows vista but do not have a product key can i install the windowxp the key no#for windows xp is in the back of the computer or how to buy a key no.


You have to enter a new Vista product id to upgrade from Windows XP to Windows Vista. The Windows XP product id will not work for Windows Vista. If you bought the Vista from an authorized retailer of Microsoft products then the serial number would be on the back of the software pack.
If you want to you can buy an activation code from Microsoft. Having an activation code means you don't need a product id and that your right to use the software is recognized by Microsoft.
I am not sure if you also have a problem with Microsoft Office because your question says "problem with Microsoft Office Professional 2007...". If you do then the same thing applies. an activation code is even stronger than a product id for both Windows and Office because a product id only gives you permission to install and use the software offline for a short time and it still needs to be activated by Microsoft before you can use it fully or longer. An activation code allows you to use the software without any limitations online or offline and also to get updates and upgrades for them from Microsoft.
If you cannot afford genuine Office software or a Microsoft Office activation code then you can download free software called Open Office which is almost as good as Microsoft Office and can even be used to open and edit Microsoft Office documents.
It is always better to have the genuine activated version.

Here are the sites you need:

Where is my product key???


Hi there!
Microsoft product keys contain 25 characters that are typically divided into groups of 5. The product key is typically located on an orange or yellow sticker on the back of the CD case or the DVD case. If the Windows operating system that you are using was preinstalled by your computer manufacturer, you may find the Windows product key sticker on the computer. If the software came preinstalled on your computer, please contact the manufacturer of your computer to obtain a replacement product key.

Product key of windows 98


Asking for a "product-key" is SOFTWARE PIRACY.

Note that Microsoft stopped issuing security-updates for Windows 98 several years ago, and will stop issuing security-updates for Windows 2000 after July 2010.

So, install Windows XP, or buy a new computer, and a newer version of Microsoft Windows (Vista or 7) will be preinstalled.

I have the product key of windows vista & it was expired. i need for the activation key.


The product-key is on the plastic case that holds the DVD, if you have the OEM version.

Or, if you purchased a computer with Vista preinstalled, look on the casing for your computer for a blue or green decal that has the 25-character product-key.

My product Key on the bottom of my Gateway laptop doesn't work


The key on the bottom probably is labelled "Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition" or "Microsoft Vista Home Premium", not "Microsoft Office Professional 2007". Look elsewhere for the key for Office.

Or, take "everything" back to the store that sold you the computer,
and get them to show you which key is which -- they took your money, and they "owe" you at least some "post-sales-support".

Wheredo iget my product key...because my computer


Well if vista was preinstalled on your system than you can find the product key on a sticker from manufacturer which would be on your machine

IT would be 25 digits alpha numeric key

Other wise, if you have cd than you can find it on the cover of our CD case

and if it is pirated version than call Microsoft to get a new key.

or if you have the cd but can't find the product key than check the part no. which u can see on the cd, than call microsoft they will be giving you the product key for free.

Windows07 won't accept product code on bottom of laptop. bought computer at circuit city. has win. vista


Hi there.
MS Office 2007 comes preinstalled with the laptop and is only a trial version, the key underneath the laptop is the product key for the operating system (Vista, XP etc) and will not activate office.
If the trial period has run out then you have to buy a product key from Microsoft.
If you don't want to pay for an office based program then i suggest you download Openoffice for free, you can read any MS Office document with that.

Get Openoffice here >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Unable to check for updates


If your copy of Vista is on a DVD (rather than preinstalled) some people have had success installing the DVD disc and choosing Upgrade (NOT Install...that will WIPE your existing system!) Somehow the Upgrade process corrects the corruption that creates your problem BUT plan on a long siege...it's NOT an immediate process. See:http://www.vistaheads.com/forums/microsoft-public-windowsupdate/180888-re-error-code-80070490-a.html and good luck!

If your copy is pre-installed, my best suggestion is to call the manufacturer of your PC, HP or Dell or Gateway Support and drive THEM nuts with it...Microsoft isn't too great at fixing it either, from reports I've read.

I accidentally damaged window vista home premium preinstalled on 0768A78(model) L3nh216(SN)note book. It asks me the window product key to bring the window up. Could you provide me the key code for this...


There could well be a sticker on the back of your laptop with the product code on for windows vista. After you have this Vista will need to be activated within 30 days of installing it.

I can't find my microsoft 2007 window vista product key


It should be on the case of your computer if it came preinstalled. If you purchased a retail copy, it should be inside the box on the sleeve but if you've lost it there's nothing you can do.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.
