Contact the place where you bought the computers.

Perhaps, but since you failed to mention in your original post that you had already tried that it seemed like a logical starting point.

Have you tried Microsoft Support?

I was simply replying to your sarcastic response. “what comes around goes around.”

If your looking for some type of magical incantation and will suddenly makes your invalid activation key a valid activation key, then I’m sorry we can’t help, but Microsoft Support may be able to.

If you want a hack, them simply doing a Google search on “office 2007 activation key”
Will give you a plethora of hits that you can pursue at your own risk.

My best advice is to contact Microsoft, if you choose not to, so be it.

I hope you solve your problem.

Hi,

You say The product key written on it does not work

What is 'it' - is it a DVD or are you referring to a label on the laptops
.
As Office was pre-loaded it should be an OEM version with the product key on a Microsoft label attached to each laptop. Is that what you have.

When you cannot get on-line activation, what happens when you call Microsoft product activation. Have they told you that the key is not valid.

I also note that there does not appear to be a Microsoft product called Office 2007 Premium Home Edition

Look at this Wikipedia article

Also look at Microsoft's page about Certificates of Authenticity, to see if the product you have appears to be authentic.

If you have doubts about the product authenticity, Microsoft has a reporting system here.

I see that you refer to the Academic version in your title. As far as I know, there are no academic 'versions'. Academic 'pricing' is available from "Authorized Education Resellers" (AER).

If you got an Academic price from someone who is not an AER, then it is likely not a genuine product.

Regards

Hi,

Perhaps you should have taken the time to see that Jennifer SUMN has provided many, many useful responses to people who post here as has Mike.

No one knows the level of aptitude of those who post, and sometimes, individuals miss a relatively simple option, but as you didn't say what you had done already, you can't expect others to be mind readers.

As a general point, if you appear to be obnoxious in your responses, then don't go expecting a whole load of help.

Regards
