Activation code for dell PC that has been reloaded from disk repair copy RRS feed

  • Question

  • A virus caused me to have to recreate the OS from the system recovry disk on a Dell PC, which has a copy of Office on it. The Pc has re-created itself (Vista), but I have hunted everywher for the activation code for Office, but it is 5 years ago, and we have moved house once - so no idea. The PC has an activation code stuck on it, but it doesnt work - says its is invalid (might be for Vista - but never needed). 23PB8-XY7GB-JP2CV-H7HFJ-YXXF2

    I then went a bought a copy  of Office 2010 (original is 2007). That wont load due to not having Vista SP1 it says. So I am stuck - no key for teh old version, no way to load a new copy.

    Any ideas?
