Restoring lost passwords and activation codes

by bababear / September 9, 2007 8:59 AM PDT

I have a COMPAQ v6110 that lost its hard drive. This occured during a backup phase and when I received the new drive from HP I used my restore disks to bring it back. The problem comes in with several of the activation codes for MS Office 2003 were lost along with all the emails that contained these. I did order a CD back up and when I received it the 25 key code was not part of the package. I assumed that was because I had already received it via email. Now, I can not get into office as the 60 day trial has expried and without the new activation codes makes it costly.
Is there anyway to 1) correct the 60 trail to bring it back online or 2) obtain a new activation code with out having to buy a complete new licence?
