lost word

  PATRICIA-238915 16:25 21 Apr 2003

We had to reboot our computer after a problem and now i cannot access "word". Everytime i try to open it it comes up with a request for a product key or a number off a CD. The computer came with Word already installed and now i can't access it.

I need 'Word' to be able to do my college work.

Vendors have to, by law, provide a separate and unique serial for every copy of word they sell, if its in a bundle, doesnt make a lick of difference. I worked at PC World for a year or so and any PC with Word preinstalled came with a little card amongst all the other bumpf with the serial... Alternatively, pray your PC wasnt made my Tiny and contact the supplier for assistance.

Operating system??. You could use system restore. Do you have a reload disk? If word came pre-installed and you don't have it on disk check to see if its on the reload.

System restore won't affect your settings but a reload most certainly will.
