Reinstalling MS Office with just a product key

Q: Reinstalling MS Office with just a product key

I'm shopping for an HP desktop. I like the p6610f that I can find on the shelf at Staples. It has all I need. It seems to come with a crippled version of MS Office 2010 preloaded. It appears I can pay about $119 more and get a product key I'd enter and convert my preloaded crippled version to a preloaded full featured version of the same set of components (Excel, Word, PPT, etc.). That's fine. I know how to do that.

My concern is: SEVERAL times in the past, my MS Office 2003 has crashed when my wife has tried to use it (she has a "limited user" acct on our current machine while I'm the administrator and I've never had a problem). I have always been able to reinstall it from the original CD which I have. That has not completely solved the problem but that's a subject for a different thread!

So if all I get now is a product key and something goes wrong, how do I start over again? Do I have to pay Gates et al more $$$ to get going again from scratch?!

Preferred Solution: Reinstalling MS Office with just a product key

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

The trials of Office 2010 are available for download here: http://www.microsoft.com/office/try/?WT.mc_id=ODC_ENUS_OATProdHome_MonTry.

Also, you could go into control panel > add/remove programs and choose the repair option to repair the installation.

I hope that information helps you. Let me know if I can help you further.

Microsoft office home and student 2007 came with my computer.  I need the key because I reinstalled windows and then upgraded to windows 10.  Can I give you my service tag # and you could look it up for me?  Thank you.

Hello Guys ,
So I have founded this site in Microsoft :

which i think it may help me to reinstall windows ,
So I have windows 8 and i used some programs to get my product Key
then , i thought if i downloaded windows 8 again from the site and used the same product key i have now it will work .
So , what do you think guys ?

A:Windows 8 reinstalling with the same product key

This will not work if you use an OEM or system builders product key.



Have you tried this? -> Refresh or Reset your PC from the manufacturer recovery partition. You don't need Windows 8/8.1 DVD/USB/ISO.






Computer Type Laptop
System Manufacturer/Model Number Hewlett-Packard Pavilion G6 2321ee
OS Windows 8 Single Language



If you have Windows 8 Single Language version (see screenshot below), then you must download Windows 8/8.1 Single Language version (see this link for help).

So I got a laptop around a year ago or so, maybe a bit longer, and replaced Windows 7 with Ubuntu fairly quickly. Well now the lack of video game support for Ubuntu has made me regret it, so I plan on reinstalling Windows 7 and simply giving it a tiny partition of the HDD. My question is how to use the product key I found on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop. I don't have any sort of recovery CD or anything for Windows 7 that I could use, and obviously every trace of it has been wiped from the drive. I considered grabbing one of the cracked versions off of a torrent site and using my recovery key, as it would still be fully legal then seeing as I merely need the install, but I figured it would be better to ask around here and see if there were a way to get a clean install of it simply less the product key. I really haven't found any way to get an install disc unless I buy a new copy outright.

A:Reinstalling Windows 7 with product key sticker

hi Neoncamouflage, and welcome to sevenforums,

you can download a legitimate iso from here.

as a side point, you say you're interested in playing games, and are going to give win 7 a 'tiny portion of the HDD'.

be aware that many modern video games contain a lot of multimedia data, and install sizes of 10 gigs or more per game are not uncommon.

Hello All,
 
I always come to this forum when having computer problems so I figured I would look for some help on my current problem as well. My friend bought a laptop from best buy about 2 years ago, runs fine great laptop. Another friend of ours must have at one point for whatever reason re installed windows 7 on it with some random key. Now it runs horrible, I decided to look at it for him and reinstall the operating system again to make it run properly. I have no disc from Lenovo so I saved the .iso to a usb drive.
 
I used Jelly Bean Finder to located the product key but at the time I had no idea of the previous reinstall so it pulled the wrong key, not the original! Of course the Microsoft sticker on the bottom is half worn off so I can only see 15 of the 25 characters of the correct key that I need. I called both Microsoft and Lenovo and none of them have keep records of the keys on there computers which I can't believe. I even went to Best Buy where the computer was purchased and they also do not keep records of the keys on the computer. No one has a record of the key, just the sticker on the bottom! So now I am stuck at the part of the install where you enter the product key, which I don't have. I could understand if I stole the key or something but it was purchased legit. I have no idea how to fix this and look forward to some input.
 
Thank you.

Hi
I was cleaning my laptop by reinstalling Windows XP Pro.

I reformated first as it was FAT32 and I wanted NTSC next time.

When I tried to reinstall Windows XP Pro from the CD it went into set up mode and was all OK until I got to the product key - for some reason it no longer works. So I can't reinstall XP Pro and it is stuck in the set up loop. No idea why the key won't work.

I do also have a Vista Home CD and key but the system is stuck in the setup loop so I don't seem to be able to install that either. I've put the CD and tried to boot it but no joy.

Can anyone help?

It's hard to say, probably not unless there were hardware changes that cause activation to see a different hardware signature assigned to that key. But reimaging can cause activation loss.

I'm not sure why you are concerned about this. If you have the Win7 and Office Product Keys then you can reactivate them as often as you want. MS does not steal your software back from you when it thinks you've reinstalled it enough. At most you'll have to do phone activation and once they are convinced you do not have it installed on more than one machine it will be activated.

I've never heard of anyone permanently losing expensive software activation if they have a readable Product Key and go through the activation process completely.

I bought Windows 2000 and Office Suite six years ago. I now have installed it on my new computer. The Customer Registration window came up and I typed in my original Product Key (25 characters) but this was rejected as invalid. I've checked it carefully and there are no mistakes. I think maybe the following has occurred but I need some help.

1. There is another number called 'CD key' on a yellow seal which is not 'product key' and I cannot find it.

2. The Windows 2000 licence is for only one computer (My booklet states "For Distribution with a New PC Only" although I bought it independently through a dealer.

3. This edition of Word 2000 is out of date and I have to buy a complete new one.

As far as I can guess CD key = product key/certificate ot authenticity and there is no other number so why is it rejected as invalid. My other theory is that Windows 7 64 bit does not support this software.

Can anyone who's been involved in this kind of scenario advise or throw light on the matter? I'd like to use my Word 2000 because it is a familar working environment and I have lots of files I need for my work at school.

Hi, I recently purchased a Dell Xps 1340 laptop that came with windows 7 32 bit professional. After a few months, I needed to wipe the hard disk, and so I did. Before I did, I extracted my product key with a program that I downloaded off the internet. I got the following information:

I have turned on my computer, inserted the disk and waited for it do the wizard installer. It has asked for my serial #'s which I have inserted but it gets stuck like half way through. The installation progress bar gets stuck at the exact same location every time I try to load it. I have tried using the Add/Remove program as well but it seems to get stuck too.

I thought maybe it was my cd/dvd player and put it in the burner slot, but on that one it asks for my #'s and gets to the same place, but then says that it is corrupted or something like that.

Hi,

I am about to reformat my HD, ditching Vista for XP (hooray!) and then will try to reinstall all my copy of MS Office 2007. This is a genuine version, and I have the product key, etc.

However, the product has been activated online, and I am wondering if I am going to have any trouble reactivating it. I have searched online and haven't found any definitive responses. Interestingly but not surprisingly, very little on the subject from Microsoft itself.

Is there a procedure I need to do, to make this whole thing easier? Should I copy any files from the Office folder before I delete everything?

I'm sure a proper procedure for doing this would benefit more people than just me, as this must be a common issue.

I've spent HOURS this morning trying to find solutions to some error messages I'm receiving when trying to install Office 97 back onto my computer so that I can reinstall the Office 2003 UPGRADE that I bought for it in 2003.

I called Microsoft and they would not help me because they no longer support 97.

I think I'm using Windows XP. I don't know how to tell. Sorry.

The problems all started yesterday when I needed to create a calendar in Publisher. In doing so, it gave me the message that the wizard was not installed and to use the set-up disk and reinstall it. OK, so I got my 2003 disk and put it in the computer.

We began to get these messages about some LIS tool that holds the updates or changes to the system? All still confusing.

At any rate, my husband and I just figured the best thing to do is to uninstall 2003 and then reinstall it and get the wizard then since there was no option to add the wizard any other way. But we found it could not be uninstalled! We tried everything and finally found a post that told us how to uninstall it and Office 97 since we couldn't find out how to get the wizard from there also.

Now, I cannot reinstall Office 97 so that I can reinstall 2003 and am getting these errors once the 97 installation gets to the end:

A while back my Dell laptop decided to brick itself, so I am planning to reinstall Windows 7 (first time attempting this). I've backed up all my files, but I'm concerned about about reinstalling Office 2010 Suite that I had. I don't have a backup disk, only the product key. I'm worried that the key won't work again (on the same computer), and I'm not excited to purchase a new one. I've read that the product key can be used for up to 3 PCs, but my particular key cannot, probably since I got it from my school, rather than purchasing from Windows. If it is indeed not possible to use the product key again, is there a way to "back up" the installation to another computer, then move to my laptop?

Thanks.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,

When requesting assistance, please provide the complete model name and/or product number of the HP computer in question. HP/Compaq makes thousands of models of computers that are all different. Without this information it may be difficult or impossible to assist you in resolving your issue. The above requested information can be found on the bottom of your laptop computer or inside the battery case.  Most HP consumer class computers come with a trial or "Starter" version of Office and not the full Office suite. If you purchased a CTO (configured-to-order) computer and paid extra money for Office, you should have received a disc and COA with Microsoft Office product key. Please refer to your invoice to see if you purchased Office with your computer.  Please click the white KUDOS star to show your appreciation

So I had my co-worker reformat a computer for me, and he downloaded ProduKey to get the keys for Windows and Office. Turns out he didn't copy the key right and he reformatted so now I am without an Office product key. Is there anyway to get it back at this point? I'm stumped.

A:Recovery Office Product Key

Windows 7 Forums will not assist you in trying to recover or crack an activation code. Please refer to Item 6 under Forum Rules.

Don't you still have the original Office installation discs & a copy of the Activation code somewhere, otherwise you may have to buy a new one.
