So Confused about Microsoft Office 2010

by Syrinx77 / November 25, 2012 10:36 AM PST

Just got a new hp laptop that I *think* came with MO 2010 installed. (there was def' no CD rom that came with it)
Only after several failed attempts & some Googling did I realize the long code at the bottom of my laptop was *Not* the registration key.

So what do I do now?

Ask HP. You paid for post-sales support, may as well use it.

Many folk get confused because it might work for some number of days and then you read posts like this as it no longer works.

I'm sure HP will tell you something similar.
