What was installed on your Notebook is a TRIAL version of MS Office. You now need to buy it if you want to continue using it. However, the latest version is MS Office 2010. You can also download the FREE OpenOffice from http://www.openoffice.org. It can open MS Office files and also SAVE AS MS Office files.
Unless you paid extra for Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, . . . ) you have a free trial copy that's good for 25 uses (of all Office programs combined) or 60 days. Until it expires, you can use it by clicking the Continue button in the registration window without entering anything in the Product key boxes. Note: The 25-character product key on the computer case or laptop bottom is NOT the key for MS Office. It’s only for the Windows operating system. But be warned: When the trial expires -- with little or no warning -- you'll be able to read and print your files, but not much more. To continue using Office, you'll have to buy a license (a product key). Here are some of your options for legally paying less than full price for Microsoft Office 2010: First, if you're a student, you may qualify for the Office 2010 Professional Academic edition at a pretty good price ($79.95): http://www.microsoft.com/student/ Second, if you’re interested in buying just Word, check out this URL, especially the second group of listings. http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/buy/of... Also, if you have files that are locked up in the new Word 2010 file format (.docx), here’s a possibility for salvaging them. Microsoft offers a free Compatibility pack that allows earlier versions of Word (and Microsoft Works) to read and write Word 2010 files. If you have access to an earlier version, this can at least give you back your documents. Some new features of Word 2010 will be lost or converted to straight text in the conversion to the earlier version. Good luck.
If your laptop really did come with with Office 2007 on it, then the key will either be on a sticker on the laptop somewhere or it will be on one of the CDs or manuals that came with your computer. However, your laptop probably only came with a TRIAL of Office 2007, which means you don't own it and you don't have a key. To get a key then, you would have to buy Microsoft Office yourself.
Besides downloading OpenOffice – another free option is Office Web Apps. This is an online version of MS Office including Word, Excel, PP and OneNote (2010). You do need to have a Windows Live Account to access.
If you used any of the below features on a document in Office 2007, you wil not be able to edit them in office 2010 (let alone create or use them from scratch) Other than that. EVERYTHING is comapatible. The following features are removed from Microsoft Office 2010. Removed from the entire suite * Microsoft Office Document Imaging application * Microsoft Office Document Scanning application * Office Diagnostics tool * Support for MSXML version 5 * Research and Reference pane for Internet Explorer Features removed from Microsoft Word * Smart Tag auto-recognition * Person Name smart tag * AutoSummary feature * Support for Word Add-in Libraries Features removed from Microsoft Access * Access Calendar ActiveX control * Replication Conflict Viewer * Data access pages Features removed from Microsoft Outlook * ANSI offline Outlook data files (.ost) for Exchange synchronization * Calendar rebasing tool * DAV connectivity for HTTP account types * Exchange 2000 connectivity * Exchange Message Security feature support * Postmarks Features removed from Microsoft PowerPoint * Macro recorder * Save as Web Page feature Features removed from Microsoft Publisher * The ability to create new Web Publications
