Preferred Solution: Have preinstalled ms office but need 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.)

A: Have preinstalled ms office but need product key

@Mohammadali1 Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!First of all, you need to know that HP keeps no records of individual MS Office product keys associated with individual PCs. That means there is no way to obtain this information from HP.Second, ever since Office 2013, MS Office has been distributed in two different forms: (1) installed locally, (2) installed using Click-to-Run (CTR). The local versions used a product key received with the purchase (or via email, from a download), the CTR versions used a product key received via email from MS, but it was NOT stored on the PC. If you have the Local version, you should be able to retrieve that key using these utilities: https://www.lifewire.com/free-product-key-finder-programs-2625119 If you have the CTR version, the key is not stored locally, and you can only get it by contacting Microsoft.Good Luck

Hi, I bought my computer in April 2012 and never activated my preinstalled MS Office ; I guess I didn't need to at the time.  I now need to activate it, and can't find my product code; I'm not even sure it came with the computer, because I don't have it anywhere, and I saved EVERYTHING from when I bought it except the packaging.

Ive used pirated bootables with preinstalled product keys in the past but am now on the straight and narrow, wanting to add my product key to my legitimate copy of windows 8. This way I wont have to worry about having it written down, losing it or entering it incorrectly, since it will be automagically entered for me.

Does anyone know how I can add the product key to my bootable image?

No need to add product key to a Windows 8 image, as the installer will see the key in the BIOS.






Where is the Windows 8 Product Key?


Factory-installed Windows 8 computers differ from previous versions of Windows. Previously, the Product Key for Windows was attached as a label on the computer so that, in the event that the computer required reinstallation, the key could be referenced for activation.

For Windows 8, the Product Key is "injected" onto the computer motherboard at the factory, and the installation and activation processes refer to the BIOS of the computer to verify authenticity and activate Windows. No Windows Product Key is otherwise provided or needed by the customer.

When I buy my product the Windows 10 Original was preinstalled on my Notebook PC and backup files were given in a locked drive. Recently my hard disk has been crashed and backup files are gone. Can I get my windows product key back?

A:Preinstalled Windows product key

Mahbubur_Rifat Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! Your product key is still on the PC.  On Win8 machines and newer, the product key is embedded into the UEFI firmware of the motherboard.  You can retrieve is using this tool:  http://www.tenforums.com/software-apps/2577-showkey.html Howver, what you SHOULD use to restore your PC is HP Recover Media and that will automatically find and reuse the product key. HP Recovery Media is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities.

So I have this Lenovo laptop with a preinstalled Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit, and somehow I managed to mess with it to the point that I can't boot to normal or safe mode, and refresh or reset the system. I have tried different methods to fix this (renaming software to software.001, trying to boot to safe mode, etc) yet no success. One of my friends told me that the OS is corrupted, so I want to do a clean reinstallation of Windows 8.1 but given a preinstalled machine, I don't have the CD with me. I haven't downloaded an installation media from microsoft website yet because I realized I don't know the product key. I have searched through my laptop's box and case with no result. With that done said, can I know my windows product key while I cannot even boot? (I'm stuck in windows recovery environment)

P.S. I dont really know much about computer so please forgive me if I sometimes sound dumb

I have a new computer that came with "Microsoft Office" pre-installed with a trial version. Since I do not have a use for it, I uninstalled it. However, I keep getting notices that there are important security updates for 2007 Microsoft Office System available.
The question is: Are these upgrades for the same trial program I unistalled or have I made an error and they are something important to the operating system?

A:Microsoft office preinstalled trail

Updates for the OS are always labelled as such.

It sounds like the trial system left some bits and pieces lying around that are getting picked up by the update system. Check in your Add or Remove Programs to see if there's anything else pertaining to Office.

The answer would be yes, it will get activated automatically when you'll install Windows 10.

Microsoft Office XP Professional, purchased legally, was re-installed on a new CPU. The Produck Key was re-registered with Microsoft at that time and accepted. When I use Excel, Word or Powerpoint on my computer there is no problem but when I open a Powerpoint file attached to an e-mail I am getting a pop up that wants me to enter the product key. When I do it says that the product key in wrong. If I click on cancel the screen goes away and I can still view the Powerpoint slide but it is irritating to have to cancel that every time.

I had Microsoft Office 2010 installed in my home desktop. It had a recurring problem of connecting to the internet to verify my installation of which all attempts failed. It was getting very annoying to me that resulted to uninstalling it and to install another version.
 
I initiated the uninstall procedure just fine then it displayed that it had "a problem removing" it. I resorted to force-uninstalling it by using IOBit's Uninstaller program. It said it completely removed the program then I began installing the other version.
 
I ran the installer and then nothing happened. I thought it was a corrupted download so I went and re-downloaded the whole thing. It came up with the same failure. Nothing happens after running the installer. I downloaded another version of the same provider and it still gave the same results. No error message, at all.
 
I then downloaded an OpenOffice suite thinking that the problem might be Microsoft product related. Same results. No error message.
 
Now, I am worried that I broke something internally (registry perhaps) that prevented me to install any office suite. I tried Microsoft's FixIt troubleshooter to aid me in finding out what might have went wrong. Nothing, still.
 
I need help in figuring out if I need to reinstall my operating system or if this can still be remedied.

Looks like you are installing just SP1 update, rather than full version of Office.

In the same email with the product key there should be full links to download your full version of Office or at least customer service number.

Every Office key has a specific version for it, you can not download just any version of Office (example: keys for PRO PLUS are not going to work with Home edition etc).

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?!
