Q: microsoft office product key

I bought the special edition HP 15-ay070wm 15.6" Realtree Xtra Camo Laptop from Wal-Mart, and it has a trial of Microsoft Office on there, but its asking for the product key. The other laptops I bought from HP always had the key on the bottom, or in the manual, but its not there. Any ideas where I can find it or contact somebody to get me one without having to pay?

Preferred Solution: microsoft office 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.)


i have lost my product key for microsoft office 10 and need assistance getting it. my note book came with it pre-installed so i was wondering if hp has tabs on their product keys. if so plz give me contacts and if not thank you for your time.

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

I have Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007. The product key is NOT asked for when I open Word, or Powerpoint, but it asks for the other programs (Outlook, Publisher, Access..). I already purchased the product key and put it in months ago. Thankfully, it does not count the '25 trial uses,' but dealing with exiting the registration is annoying. Could it be some confusion with the trial product I had running before?

Thanks for any help

kdavis12508,When you say you lost the product key, does that means you lost the physical product case and disk? The actual product key label is attached to a paper card,  inside the plastic case. Open the case, remove the MS Quick Start guide to see the label. If you have MS Office installed, the key can be found with Belarc Advisor: http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

I bought an HP Compaq Presario CQ62 6 weeks ago and it's got Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit pre installed.
Also preinstalled is the Microsoft Office 60 day trial - online, with Office 2007 on it. Not having had any problems with Word on my previous pc (also must have been preinstalled) I was unaware that they now put trial versions of microsoft office on these pc's.

What I'm getting at is that I now find that the product key won't unlock Office 2007 and if I want to use Word I'll have to pay for a new download or disk. The retailer said nothing about this.

I just checked out Microsoft's prices for the full 2010 suite and it's about $150. No way.

I checked a site (kattrax.net) and they're offering the Office Standard 2007 Full version for $70.
1) How can I tell if it's really genuine?
2) If it is, do I just go ahead and download it, and what do I need to uninstall before doing that, if anything?
3) Product Key. It says on their page "After purchasing Office 2007 you can download software or use only Microsoft licence key for activation Office 2007 and pass Microsoft Genuine Advantage".

What does that mean after "......use only Microsoft licence key for..............."

Would really appreciate some info/advice about this.

A:Satellite L300 - Microsoft Office keeps asking me for product key


> home office thing
Nice description ;)

Anyway, I think you mean the Microsoft Office version that is preinstalled on your notebook. As far as I know that?s only a trial version of it and that means you have to buy a Office version if you still want to use it.

If you don?t buy an Office version, you can?t use it anymore.

Last but not least if you have several problems you have to contact an authorized service provider instead Toshiba directly.

I have an old computer (and when I say old, I mean dinosaur) that was given to me by a friend. It has Windows XP with no service packs (imagine how much fun it is to use that ), but it also has Microsoft Office 2000 on it, and I wanted to find the product key for it. I found WinKeyFinder, but that only supports Office 2000 SP2, and I don't have the time to install SP2 (it currently has no service packs). Microsoft said they wouldn't be able to do it, so does anyone have any ideas on how I can find it? Or will I have to just install Office 2000 SP2?

This "MS office package that I bought with the computer" is in what forum?  If it is a disk, then there should be a sleeve with a key printed on it.  If you cannot find that sleeve, then now you are most likely going to have to purchase it.  The SUPPORT PAGE for that model says it could have come with one of the Microsoft Office 2007 choices.  If that is what you wish to continue to use, it might be available from an "old software dealer" at a discount.Had you used a keyfinder before wiping out the virus infected software, you would have been able to reinstall.  Or use a backup to return all the purchased software to service.

Ok so I'm planning on re-installing Windows, which means I need to download Office 2010 again. However, I simply can't find the correct email that Office is tied to. I've tried the only 4 emails of mine it could possibly be tied to to no avail. The computer/Office were a gift from my parents for graduation, but their work/home emails don't have an account tied to them. So I'm at a loss.

I ran into this problem before, trying to switch from click to run to MSI. However, I was able to work around it by, I think, downloading the 30 day trial or whatever, and activating from there. However, I can't seem to find a 2010 trial anymore. A Google search for it takes me to where it would be, but then I click on "try it now" (as seen here Try Office 2010 - Microsoft Office) (Home and Student version, if it matters), and it redirects me to the new 2013 version, which obviously isn't what I want.

Any thoughts on how to work around this? I could always try customer service, I guess, but if there's some alternate source to get the trial from that would be great. Thanks.

Edit: Also, I really want it to be the MSI version, not click to run, so I think that would affect what to download. Thanks again.

I just got a new laptop that came with a sampler version of microsoft office (microsoft office tools, I believe). This only provided a 60-day trial version of all the applications (Excel, Outlook, Word, etc.).
Anyway, I had a version of MO from college that I tried to install over it and the computer said the product key was invalid. I tried many times, same result.
So I asked a buddy for his 97 version of office (I know, I know, I'm a horrible person). His installation also failed, once again with an invalid product key.
So my girlfriend buys an academic version of MO from her university and brings it home tonight. Same result. Invalid product key.
Anyone have any idea what's going on? Is it my installed version that's preventing me from installing a standard issue of MO?
Please advise. Thanks everyone.

A:Trying to install Microsoft Office, product keys don't work!

Has your 60-day trial period expired? If so I would attempt to uninstall it, and then install your own version.
There is a viable alternative to Windows Office, which is free and open-source, found at OpenOffice.Org, if all else fails.

After much messing around I have discovered that if you use Windows 7 'Associate a file type or protocol with a program' to set default programs for file types, it breaks the File Types selection within a given program (in my case Microsoft Office Picture Manager) and you are no longer able to use the program itself to set file types only the Windows 7 function. You can tick/untick file associations all day long within Microsoft Office Picture Manager and nothing gets associated/unassociated. The File Types option is basically broken. I have also noticed this occur with 7-zip which actually causes a more serious issue. By default .zip is not listed in the Windows 7 list of 'Associate a file type or protocol with a program' window but is listed if you associate .zip with 7-zip's own file association option. BUT if you then subsequently use windows 7 to re-associate .zip with Windows Explorer, the .zip vanishes (because by default is is not listed), breaks 7-zips file association options and you can no longer associate .zip files with 7-zip, EVER. Basically I am curious as to why Windows 7 own file association options would break software's own internal file association options so badly to the point they are essentially useless and if there is a fix. I even tried completely reinstalling Microsoft Office and removing all references of it within the registry, no luck. Its not a big deal but I just found it odd that a fundamental piece of Windows 7 would harm the integrit... Read more

and browse to where other icons are, (you can assign any icon to any file type that you want, it is a matter of personal preference).
Icons are found in .exe files (executables), some (not all) .dll (dynamic link library) files, and .ico files.
