Hello duck,
there are a few ways to open your document.

1) Purchase Windows Office from a local retailer or online at

2) You can download and use It is very user friendly, completely FREE and opens all of the Windows, and open source formats out there. I personally prefer this over Word anyways. You can find it at

3) If you want a quick way to open it and if the document is in .docx format you can use this website: This website should allow you to convert your document into any format you wish. You will likely want to convert it to .doc.

Good Luck

Microsoft Word is a paid for product, if you don't want to buy it there are free alternatives on the net like OpenOffice
it's free and it supports all the files that Microsoft Office supports, if you want a quick way of printing a Word document, this is how you'd do it!

Please check if the chart was done with Microsoft 2007 or 2011 and then transferred to a computer that does not have the same version. If this is the case, install the same Microsoft office version and try opening the same file / even try printing it.

Cant get the product for Microsoft office and student to work.

The product key on the bottom of the computer is for the OS only, it does not work with Microsoft Office. You would need a seperate key for that. I would suggest purchasing one at the store or online. I cannot recommend downloading anything as that would be illegal. Cheers.

I have text documents saved, when i open it says microsoft program not responding, i can open it on note pad

Hi gvenkatmd

After typing the document, save it as a word document NOT as a text document. If you save it as a text document Microsoft Word will not open it automatically.
Hope this will work for you.

Can't print Word Perfect documents on my Lexmark 1300

Make sure you have all the recent microsoft updates.

If it still won't print you can use OpenOffice (Free to use and download) to open your documents with and maybe they will print from there. Using Open Office may change some formatting, but you can usually fix that pretty easily.

Download Open Office

Cannot scan via 5610 because the screen message refers to microsoft word


If you are trying to scan a document, and the settings that you have on the HP SOlution Center Installed in your computer uses the Microsoft Word as SCAN TO, you cant use it since your Microsoft Word Office is not yet setup. You may try using the WOrd Pad instead. Or, you can use the .pdf to scan a document. Just open the SOlution Center on your computer, and try to go to click on Scan Documents- the window will pop-up and change some settings there.

Thank you so much.
