No - The product key is the "proof of purchase"

I have a laptop asus, windows 7, microsoft 20007 needs product key


You will have to buy Microsoft Office 2007. Which they no longer sell so it has to be Office 2010 or try free OpenOffice.

An Operating System was installed in this laptop but it is not genuine microsoft. This laptop has a genuine OS / proof of licence / certificate of authority. How do I install the said OS?


Your OS is genuine Microsoft Windows, but it has one of those product keys that Microsoft.com
has decided is invalid, usually since it has already been installed (and activated over the internet)
too many times already. The home versions can only be activated 10 times before any future activations are disallowed.
Microsoft solution: buy a Windows 7 install CD for your laptop, and install.
Your solution: hunt around for an install CD from your friends/relatives/etc. with a product key that's
been activated fewer than 10 times, and ask the owner if you can use up one of their 10.

I have Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 pre installed on a new laptop. The product key doesn't work and tried the ones given on the Fix'ya website, they didn't work either. Any help? What can I do,...


The product-key on the key is for Microsoft Windows, not for Microsoft Office.
So, you're correct in stating that the key won't work.

What probably was pre-installed was a "trial" version, and you clicked "I agree" (to use the trial version) the first time that you started Microsoft Office. After 30 days, the "trial" period has ended, and it's time to purchase a license-key.

Or, take a closer-look at the license-key: OH-versus-ZERO, ONE-versus-ELL, FIVE-versus-ESS, EIGHT-versus-B, OH-versus-QUEUE.

I'm a volunteer worker with refugee-education. My office 2007 was installed (access-excell-outlook-word-powerpoint-publisher-oneNote) when I bought my laptop ACER 7720G in Belgium two years ago. I am now...


If you have bought your laptop with "Genuine Windows Operating sytem" and "Genuine microsoft office 2007" software the Vendor should have given you the Recovery CD for ACER (or the Recovery CD embedded on the Hard drive),and the CD for Microsoft Office 2007 including the "Licence stickers" with the products attached to your Laptop. If you don't have them, the vendor have short-changed you!

Your options, either you buy a key from microsoft, buy a new copy online.
OR
Google "Office 2007 torrent" and take your chances.

Alternatively,
Read the threads from Fixya,

Hope it helps.

My product key is invalid.......... pls help . the product key given at the bottom is invalid when i typed it to the microsoft office


If you are using the key on the bottom of your laptop that is the problem. You need to find the key that was on the box or the packaging for the software.

If you did use the key off the packaging then you need to contact Microsoft and get a new key!

Toshiba laptop model PSL40L-032003. THIS Is the model of the laptop i bought it from EMCOR maramag branch, Bukidnon, Philippines. I wonder why the store incharge doesnt give me the cd of windows vista...


Hi!

Thats beacuse the Vista on your laptop is an OEM. That means that the store buys keys from Microsoft and install the OS with one of the keys they bough. So you wont get a cd, and if you crash your laptop you have to buy a new licens. Therefore be sure that you make a GOOD BACKUP of your system if you one day may need it.

Its very usual that you dont get a OS on a cd when you buy a computer today. Well, i have got any for the last 4-5 years on my buys.

On your laptop there is a OS key, if you ever need support from Microsoft, register your OS and that key will get you all the help you need. But fist of all..MAKE A BACKUP!

Good luck M8

Actually I have a HP my product key doesnt work


when you have a trial version and buy a key for the full version it gives you the key using your data from the computer you purchased it on. If you are trying to put the key in again on a different computer it will not work. Unless you have the cd version of the software. You may need to purchase a new key from the computer you are using now
