I have a vista laptop with microsoft office 2007 and it keeps asking me for the product key. I typed in the one written on the bottom of the laptop but it didn't work. How do I get the correct product key?

The product key as described is for Vista not Office. You have to purchase Office key now you are used to using it.
Download OpenOffice, it is 100% compatible and free! It is available on

Hope that saves you loads of money.

I have a brand new laptop with windows vista, and it keeps asking me for the prod. key for microsoft home and student 2007.

You need to go back to your place of purchase and explain to them that you need your Windows Vista Certification Key. Also, look on the bottom of the unit. I have seen product keys placed on there.

Telling me I have enter in valid product key and I have used it

Hi there!

This is probably happening because your copy of Office 2003 was activated when you first installed it. Once that key is used, it expires and can't be used to activate again unless you call Microsoft and have them validate your copy of Office 2003.

The number for "Activation by Telephone" should be displayed during the first few steps of the installation of Office 2003.

You will be prompted to enter the product key on the phone, which of course will still not be valid. You will be transfered to a Microsoft representative who will help you. They might ask you for the key again just to double-check. You can tell them that you had to reinstall Windows and Office 2003 because of your computer problems. They will ask you a few more clarifying questions and will either reactivate your key or provide a new one to you.

I hope this helps! Feel free to reply if you have any questions.

My system is not accepting the microsoft product

It definitely could be invalid, first, I would try making sure obviously that you are entering it correctly, check for I's instead of ones, O's and zeroes, etc. Try different combination of each and see if that gives you any luck.
If you have no success with that, contact microsoft and ask for a new serial key and after they check that you actually own the software they should gladly give you a new one.

Invalid product key Windows Vista Home Premium with Toshiba

this could be because someone took the license key that was origionally installed on your computer, did you lent it out? The same product key can not be activated on 2 computers unless it has multiple licenses. I had this problem, but i simply called microsoft and they shut down the other product key and gave me a new one for free.

I need a product key to activate my hp 530 laptop please

Usually Mfg's place a Microsoft sticker on the notebook. Try looking on the bottom side of the notebook. It will say product key & or Vista. Other companies place the product key on a CD sleve's. If the sticker is missing than write down the serial number & model number of the notebook & call HP. The number is on the main web site.

Don't take any **** from HP. (If your's is out of warranty). Ask them where the darn sticker was placed from factory.
Web site for the HP Pavilion dv6000z CTO Notebook.
If HP does not help than check friends or family. Any Vista key will work. Even if it means you have to call toll free to Microsoft.
Tell them you replaced the hard drive. They'll issue you a new key by phone free. You may need to re-install windows to get at the toll free number. (Sorry I do not have it listed).
If you have a valid MS WinXP CD install that. You're notebook will run faster & HP does have a web site for drivers to work with XP. At this next link:
Personnally if I had a key for Vista I'd ask for an email address but I do not. Vista is a bad thing.

Good luck!

First : NEVER post your key online !!!! then anyone can use it and activate it!!!!

Did you get the install CD's for Office? if not the Office you have is a trial and you have to buy it and get a key.

For windows change the key to the one on the bottom of the machine .

If you have Windows XP you can change it with this software:

If you have vista try this page:
