  • Hi, I've had my netbook for almost a year now and the product key never worked. i have an acer aspire 1410 netbook, and the product key is located on the bottom of the netbook. Everytime that I typed it in it would say that it is incorrect. After that I just started pressing cancel, but then I could not access any of my windows features. I couldn't view anything on websites. I am a unviersity student and i need windows word, powerpoint and excell to work in order for me to do my work.

    The product key on the sticker is for Windows - not Office.
    You almost certainly have a TRIAL of Office installed - if you want to activate it you have to purchase the full license.
    Since MS no longer sells Office 2007, you would be better to download the Office 2010 trial, and then purchase a key to activate whichever version you want.
