I just recently bought a HP 2000 Notebook PC and I am trying to use microsoft office but it keeps asking me for a product key number. I clicked on the help button which said that I the product key number should have came with the laptop which I checked everything that came with the laptop and there is no product key number. and before I purchased the laptop it said that microsoft office is already on it. Is there any way I can get a new product key number? or do I have to purchase one?

Most HP machines come with a preinstalled 60 day trial of MS Office.Unless you ordered and paid extra for fully licensed Office, you will have to purchase a license key.

I would like to access my mircosoft office, But unable to do so because i was prompt for the product key in which obviously did not come with or in my purchase from a local retail store of purchase. My question is:-
1) Do i have to pay for the product key?
2) Or will it be emailed to me?
3) Is it located in the bios as i previously read, and if so where?

If you have not purchased a product key for Microsoft office then you will have to do so in order to use it.
There will be a product key for Microsoft Office in your BIOS
