What good is updated software if no one can read it???

Hi. I am helping a friend who just bought a new Sony Vaio notebook with Vista and Office 2007 Home & Student Edition. She is sending out a Word document as an attachment to the email and no one can open it. I even sent it to myself and it opens as a bunch of junk. I noticed the file extension in this new version is .docx instead of just .doc... Is this the problem and how do I fix it for her? Thanks!

    All the solutions everyone suggested are things I had already tried. In "Save As" it already saves as Word 97-2003 documents but adds that stupid "x" after "doc" and I don't seem to be able to get rid of it. The one thing I have not tried is changing the extension when I open a link to the attachment. I will try that. I am hoping we don't have to resort to pasting the entire document into the email. That just isn't what we're supposed to have to do! Thanks for your responses and everyone keep trying! I appreciate the efforts!

You need to save the file as word 2003 compantible.
so while saving use the SAVE AS by clicking on office logo on the left top coner of Ms word.
choose MS Word 2003 compatible or the version u are using

SOFTWARE MICROSOFT 2007 DOWNLOAD


MS Office 2007 is available here:
http://www.nextag.com/MS-office/shop-html?nxtg=3a570a1c0591-970B8697213DFCAC

Why not just get Office 2010? Office 2010 has the same great basic layout as 2007, just more features, and you can try it for free:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/try/

If you don't like the price of Office 2010, try Open Office: http://www.openoffice.org/
Open office will open and save documents as .doc (Microsoft documents) so they can be read by Microsoft Office products. Open Office really is a good product, and it is FREE.

Microsoft also has a free online Office (Skydrive):

Sorry, but if you are looking for a free download of Microsoft Office 2007, we are not allowed to provide that info on this site because it is illegal.

I have upgraded my Sony Vaio VGC-RA830G to windows vista home premium, however, am having trouble with the tv tuner card drivers. I cannot find them at all for vista


Hi,

Windows Vista is still behind providing drivers for tv tunners....unless you buy new ones designed for vista. If you had your tv tuner for xp and it worked fine on that operating system than I am afraid that you are going to have to buy a new one for vista.

How ever you may find that microsoft or the third part supplier may be on the process of supplying software for your tv tunner.

Please let me know what happens woth you... I would be grateful to if you could let me have the serial number and the model number so that I can do research for you and try and help you out.

Regards,

Philip

Go to Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs and look for the Office Trial. Click on "Remove", then try to install the new software.

Adam,

The sony VAIO Pcv-j200 only runs with Windows 2000, windows Me and windows xp. The current operating system Vista on your computer right now will work but some of the features of it may not. The link below shows all the drivers for your unit for diffent operating systems (not vista). What you can try to do is to download the audio driver for windows xp
