They would be either printed on a sticker of authenticity on the CD case , the side of your computer or in the operating manual . If you did not get any of these and purchased it from the store you have most likley bought pirated software.

How do you reboot a mini laptop to a factory default in whats the right cd do you need to download something if it ask u to download stuff.


To reboot your mini laptop to factory default you need to re-install your OS (Operating System).
To do this you need your Windows xp, vista, or Windows 7 disc, and make sure you have your product key. Ie. Product Key: xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx (Most product keys are on the bottom of the laptop, and are 25 Characters).
Put the disc in your laptop and restart your computer. Boot from CD, and follow the prompts. It will ask you if you want to format your partition (Erase all your data including virus's) and format it. Then it will install your OS, and you will have factory default setting's and programs.

Hope this helps and if you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask me! Please don't forget to rate :), Thanks!

I'm having trouble with microsoft office '07. It's asking for a 25 character product key but when I type it in it doesn't work. Now it's not letting me type at all


Hi,

It sounds like you have bought the machine with Office 07 pre-installed on it. This means that it is only a 60 day trial version of the software.
As soon as it reaches that end date it will freeze up and ask you for the 25 character product key.

This means that Microsoft requires you to purchase a key from them.

Alternatively, you can download OpenOffice which is totally free and works with MS Office files.

Download OpenOffice from here >>>>>>>

I am trying to setup my microsoft program onto the computer and it is asking for a product number, i put in the product number and it it coming up wrong?


MS installer invariably asks for a product KEY 25 (approx) alphanumeric characters in groups of 5, on a sticker on the cd/dvd case, not the product number
If you are using the product number it will fail, if you have thrown away the sticker for your valid product contact MS, and verify the purchase and they will assist you to register your product.
If you cannot verify proof of purchase, it might be harder.
If the MS program you are installing is a demo version its time limited period may be expired
MS are pretty good about it actually,

Mircosoft is asking for a 25 character Product key for microsoft office home & student 2007. My computor was a floor model with this program already installed. Where do I get this information from?...


Then I suggest Office Depot be your source for the Key. We can not give those keys as we are not authorized to carry them and if we did, Microsoft would put us out of business.
