  • Question

  • I just got a new Toshiba L455D-S5976 laptop.   It came with Windows 7 Home/Student Office installed on it.  However, everytime I use it it asks for the 25 character Product Key to register it.  When I input the MS 7 Home Product Key listed on the back of the laptop it says it invalid.  What do I do now?

    There is no such thing as Windows 7 Home Office

    There is Windows - in a number of flavours.
    There is Office - in a number of flavours.
    Unless you paid extra for your Office install (check your invoice), the chances are that it is a Trial version that has been installed.
    The Product Key on the COA sticker on your laptop's case is for Windows - NOT Office (read it!)
     
    If you want to continue to use Office of any type after the expiry of the trial, you will need to purchase a license for it.

  • Purchase a  Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 perpetual license and type in the 25-character Microsoft Office Home and Student 2010 product key that comes with it.
