  1. Evening all.

    I bought a copy of Microsoft Office Home and Student last year and have been using it fine, however after buying a new laptop and trying to install it i realise i have lost the activation key.

    I have tried to phone Microsost and the numpty on the other end said i need to go back to PC World (where i bought it from) to get another Key.

    Is he right or is there another way of getting a key?

    Thanks in advance.

    Have you still got your old device? If so, you can interrogate you MS Office apps for the product key in the properties function.

    If not, dunno mucker.
  3. If you have your old laptop, google magical jellybean keyfinder ;)
  4. I had to bin my old laptop, it was f*ucked.

    How did you lose the key? It is on the back of the pull out bit which holds the disk.

  6. To be honest, i can't remember. I have only the disk left now.
  7. I lost the key......that old chestnut ;)
  8. Seriously i have lost the key, or more to the point the disk box that had the key in it.
