  • The product key affixed to your Acer laptop is for Microsoft Windows (the operating system preinstalled by Acer) and not for Microsoft Office 2010.  In order to activate Microsoft Office 2010, you'll need to purchase a product key for it.  Visit the   Microsoft Store for a selection of available Microsoft Office 2010 suites.

  • Note: Unless you specifically ordered (and payed extra for) a full version of Office 2010 then the copy of Office that came pre-installed on the PC is most likely a Trial Version. Please see Carey's post to convert the Trial to a Full version.
