Re: PRODUCT KEY CODE

Without knowing a little bit more about your environment it will be hard to answer this question.

 

Where did you get the product key from and what media was used to install the computer as you have to use the correct media and keys together.

 

What error message are you getting?

Re: PRODUCT KEY CODE

What version of Office is on the laptop and what key do you have?

It clearly states on the CoA label beneath your notebook that it is meant for Microsoft Windows and not Microsoft Office.

You'll need to purchase Microsoft Office and then use the key from the full version, or you'll need to activate the 60-day/25-use free trial that comes with the notebook.

If he is trying to activate Office please refer to Kalt's post above.  There should be no need to activate an OEM version of Windows.
