Can't open a word document

Thanks for your prompt response. I've had my computer 4 years so guess the 60 days trial run for the windows 2003 is obsolete. What do I do now? My computer system is a Compaq Presario (SR1103WM), the Product # is
PC182A-ABA, Serial # is CNC4250LLB (all this info was on the CPU tower)
Since everything seems to be obsolete could this be why I have a software and application problem with opening a word document? How can I fix this problem?

Another thing you can try is a complete re-installation of your office,if you have a disc with you.

Extend the Windows 7 Trial from 30 to 120 Days

On the last day of your trial, log into the command prompt as administrator and type, "slmgr -rearm". This should reset the 30 day counter 4 times before it stops working. Pleanty of time to decide if you really want to give up the stable and reliable XP box sitting in your den.

A possible solution is to run CHKDSK. As you have tried system restore I presume you can start in safe mode. (press F8 on boot until the selection screen appears).

Open a command prompt window and type CHKDSK /r (note the space between K&/) press enter. You will be told the disc is locked and asked if you want to run on next boot. Type y and press enter. Type exit press enter. Reboot. It can take a long time depending on HDD size so be patient. Go make yourself something to eat, watch some TV or whatever.

To open a command prompt window in XP - click start/run type cmd on the run window.

Vista & win7 click the orb and type cmd in the search box.

I rebooted and now microsoft office word keeps asking for produch key . i got it used and do not have it .what # can i put in

Hmnnn, probably you had a free edition of office suite application installed on your computer which will be valid for only 60 days. If you wish to continue using all the application of office suite, you will have to purchase the full version of office suite.
-See the following link for the price comparison: If you wish to continue using the free trial version again, you will have to install different version of office trial suite again. -For example, If you had Office 2010 Home and Student trial edition installed on the computer before and it is expired, you can uninstall it and install the Office 2010 Professional trial edition on the computer which will be valid for another 60 days.
However, you also have the option of using the open office suite which is absolutely free. The open office suite provides all the features and functionality of the Microsoft application.
You can download the open office suite for free from the following link:

Hi, Boot into Safe Mode by pressing F8 at bootup and choose
'Safe mode with command prompt'

At the command prompt type

Hopefully System Restore will open so choose a Restore Point a few days ago.

What website can I access to get a free download of either Microsoft 2000 or 2003 Powerpoint? Not a 60 day free trial, but a free software download for my computer? Thanks.

Good luck with that!

You may want to consider Open Office from Sun. Open Office suite had all the things that Microsoft has and will do all the things that Microsoft does but Open Office is free to download and free to use and in fact, free for you to add to or take from or make recommendations to.

get it here ... they may ask you for a contribution and they may ask you to open an account. Both are optional. PLUS, when something goes awire with Open Office, you will get reasonable support.

With a pirated MS Office, you will never get sanctioned support or fixes. If you dont want to pay, get the Public Domain Open Office.

I hope this helps you

Please dont pirate software

Thanks for using

Positive comments appreciated
