It should give you a number to call when that message comes up. Call it. They don't bite and should be able to give you a number that will fix the problem. I call them all the time. It is easy.

So for a year you've used it for free and are surprised that MS have now found out.

Google a fix, they do exist.

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:

www.openoffice.org

How to get Vista ricovery cd's?


If you have a valid license with your laptop, and it sounds as if you do, all you need to do is contact Microsoft and activate your installation. Since the internet activation apparently has failed, here are two additional methods:

Activate Windows Vista by using the automated telephone system loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); To activate Windows Vista by telephone, you must use an automated telephone system. To activate Windows Vista by using the automated telephone system, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, and then click Computer.
  2. On the toolbar, click System properties, and then click Click here to activate Windows now in the Windows activation section.

    If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
  3. Click Show me other ways to Activate.
  4. Click Use the automated phone system, and then follow the instructions.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 3: Contact Microsoft loadTOCNode(2, 'resolution'); If Windows detects that the hardware on your computer has changed significantly, and the previous method does not solve your problem, you may have to contact Microsoft for help. To view the Microsoft Activation Centers Worldwide Telephone Numbers list, visit the following Microsoft Web site: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=71142

It may be best to go directly to Method 3, find the phone number and call MS. Once you explain your situation they should activate without any issue.

Good luck, and please let me know how this works out for you.

Cant install software


Yes, Office Home and Student 2007 is compatible with your laptop. One question: are you trying to enter your activation product key into the installed version of Office 2007 trial that is on the laptop? It will not work, if you are.

You need to contact Microsoft, and they will help you with your problem. If I were you, I would start HERE.
