my product key doesn't work. what do I do?

[ Edited ]

I went to input my product key today to use msoffice (much delayed, we've had this laptop since early last fall), and the product key doesn't work. the numbers are on the bottom of my laptop, I transcribed them carefully onto my paper notepad, then transcribed them carefully into the window which asked for them, have checked, rechecked, re-rechecked, everything matches, but it rejects it and says it's incorrect. help! I can't afford new programs. and the product key is for all of my msworks programs, works, write, office, etc.

I just noticed an icon for hp solution center, I'll try it too. oh, that's for my printer. nothing to do at all with my laptop.

thanks for any help with this.

Mine does the exact same thing!!! I am very technologically behind and I wouldn't even know where to begin to fix it, or anything. What did you do?????

The license key on bottom of laptop is for Windows_not Office. The version of Office that comes preinstalled is a 60 day trial:

If you need free software_consider the popular Open Office:

What about the work I have in progress? Can I transfer that or do I need to pay to continue office? I do still have five more times on office.

Open Office can be used with most files created in Office. Or you can use the link within Office to purchase license to continue using your Office 2007.
