Victus by HP 16.1 inch Gaming Laptop PC 16-e0000 (457S2AV)
Microsoft Windows 11

My device was supposed to come with free office 2019,yyet i am unable to redeem it.

When i try to activate it,this message appears:Screenshot 2022-03-28 105930.png


I followed with the get help option, installed  microsoft support and recovery assistant which promptly told me that  no office subscription was linked to my account.

I only have one microsoft account and that's what I used to activate this laptop with.

Kindly advice on how to solve this issue

Your solution pretty much lies with Microsoft...


Things that are Microsoft / Office


Microsoft 365 / Microsoft Office are licensed products owned and controlled by Microsoft.

We can help to the extent of providing information to help you understand your options.



Microsoft Office - Product and License Information 


Open and Read

 Microsoft - Activate Office


Activate Office using the Activation wizard

Includes “Activate after reinstalling or moving Office”


Installation and License Key Options


Some of the ways to “get” Office Software:


  1. Trial Software that comes with the computer. 


An "offer" to try the software, in other words.  The license is NOT included in Trial offers.


  1. Purchase Microsoft Office when you purchase your computer

Look for your license key with your purchase paperwork.


  1. 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.


  1. Purchase Office separately from Microsoft or other merchant.
