1. The center of the road method is to call Microsoft since you bought, paid for and registered your Office 2000. They get you a new number.
2. The off center method. Run BELARC ADVISOR from google.com, print the results for backup. The COA number is likely in that printout unless you wiped the drive.
Best of luck,
I have Office 2000, had to do a reinstall of my OS. Now I need to reinstall Office. Problem is I have my discs, I was in the hospital for 2 months,someone moved the COA. I do have the OEM numbers from my old computer, what I do not have is the COA code to put in when they want it. Any suggestions as to where to find this code? I am adequate when it comes to computers, a long way from technically inclined so I need the answers in very simple terms. Thanks for any help.
