Hello, and welcome to Justanswer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be happy to assist you.
Please let me know when you are ready.
Are you trying to activate Microsoft Office 2007?
From where did you get the product key?
on the base of the laptop
Please be informed that the product key that you see on the bottom of the laptop is for your Windows and not Microsoft Office.
it's a microsoft sticker
Microsoft Office came preinstalled with your computer is a trial version.
It will expire after 60 days or a number of use.
Yes. The sticker for Microsoft Windows 7.
so what does that mean, that i have to buy another copy?
You have to purchase a full version.
Manufactures do not provide full version of Office with their computers.
but surely if it's got a 25 digit product key and haven't i already bought it? if not, how do i do that without a cd drive?
The product key is for the Windows 7 that came installed with your computer.
ok, fine. but can i buy a copy online from somewhere and download it? the laptop doesn't have a cd drive
You have to purchase a product key for Microsoft Office, download and install the trial version for the appropriate version, and activate it using the product key that you have purchased.
You can buy it from Microsoft website.

ah ha, you answered before i even asked :-)
ok, i'll do that. thank you very much.
You can purchase the download version or CD version.
