Recovering from a Recovery

I did a Recovery. The computer works fine - BUT - I can not access my MS Office Suite. I do not have the CD (lost not stolen), and therefore do not have the key. MS will help me if I pay $50 to tell em my problem - OR - buy an upgrade. All of this was installed at Best Buy when I bought this ****** in 2005 by the Geek Squad. Is there a backdoor to the administrator (i already got it going from safe mode) but the software is not allowing me access.

    It is evident you can not read. Assuming you are a tech - your answer is useless. Assuming you are a salesperson - your note makes perfect sense. Without the CD's there is nothing to do or can be done - your answer should have been - I do not know...Thanks for tryin anyway

Hey JLS95,

If you do not have a valid product key, there unfortunately is no way to access the Office software. In such cases it is recommended that you contact the manufacturer of your computer directly, assuming that the software was preinstalled on your computer at the time of sale. Not all manufacturers will provide recovery CD's or product key information with newer computers, and in such cases you must speak with the computer manufacturer to obtain them.

In the event that you purchased a full version of the MS Office suite from your local Best Buy™ store and had it installed by us instead, you should have been given the installation CD and all associated documentation once the work was complete. You may wish to double-check your store receipt to determine what the case may be, and if you did purchase a full version of the software you'll need to speak with a manager at the store where you had the software installed for more information.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

MikI did a F10 syatem recovery recently and now I have Wordpad instead of Word. How can I recover


Hello,

The recovery on your computer reinstalls the operating system and drivers for your computer hardware. Notepad is a part of the operating system, Word is a seprately installed software from Microsoft. Suppliers, such as HP or Dell, etc may include a trail version of Word with the computer recovery, but would require purchasing or cd key activation of the program within 30 days.

If you would like an alternative that operates very much like MS Word, then please go the "Open Office.Org" website to reveiw their software. The other option would be MS Works suite that has a version of Word, cost about $50.00, compared to double that for the least expensive Office suite.

Good Luck
