Rejection of product code on work suite.

  charlton200 18:13 14 Feb 2007

I have just got my computer back from repair with a new hard drive.
I am tring to install my copy of work suite 2005.
When i enter the product code it keeps rejecting it.
I had no trouble with it before.
I need to use word on it , so its a big nuisance.

Have you got any ideas why my product code keeps being rejected.

If the work suite is OEM it is not recognising the HDD the prog was intended for.

I bought the work suite when I bought the computer.

The work suite is in a proper box with a word product code, so it should be able to go on any computer. Also this is the second hard drive i have had and it was OK on the last change.

many thanks.

I don't really see how it can be rejected then unless it is being typed wrong or something silly like Capslock is on..

Some letters and numbers can look like another l and 1, for example, and 0 and O ...

Try re-typing the Product Key again and double Check as you go along.

The only time I have ever had bother with this is when I mistyped. I appreciate you say you've checked and double checked but I can't think of another explanation.
