If the product / computer is in Warranty and nothing else works, try contacting HP Support
Will that work? Maybe.. In general, HP Support does not keep track of license information for software products.

Installation and License Key Options
Some of the ways to “get” Office Software:
- Trial Software that comes with the computer.
An "offer" to try the software, in other words. The license is NOT included in Trial offers.
- Purchase Microsoft Office when you purchase your computer
Look for your license key with your purchase paperwork.
- Receive a “free one year subscription to Office 365 when you purchase the computer (quite rare).
If you have trouble with this exact type of “installed” Office before it has expired,
Contact HP Support for recovery options.
- Purchase Office separately from Microsoft or other merchant.
