    I recently bought a HP laptop in which Vista Home Premium was pre-installed. And now when i want to use my Microsoft office programs on this laptop, it insists that the key fixed upon the computer is invalid. No matter how many times i try the number is there any chance as that as this is a display model that someone could have written the affixed key down and used it on their own computer?

    Thank you in advance

  • Computer manufacturers often install a trial version of Microsoft Office.  If you are getting a prompt to type in a Product Key when opening a Microsoft Office program, it s likely the trial period is over and you'll need to purchase a license (product key) for Microsoft Office.


    The product key affixed to your computer is for Windows Vista (the operating system) and not for Microsoft Office.  Please review the following:
