  1. I had Office with a new laptop and uninstalled it. Can I get it back?


    My new laptop just came in from the mail today and I've been tinkering with it some. I didn't know that it would come with Microsoft Office pre-installed and I don't know if it's a trial version or the full version that I can keep. What I know is that happen to uninstall Microsoft Office from the program settings in the control panel thinking it was something else and now I don't know how to get it back. My guess that it was a trial version since it said Office 365 on it or something. I looked on the page where I ordered it from and I don't see anything saying that it comes with office: Acer Laptop Aspire E5-575-33BM Intel Core i3 7th Gen 7100U Windows 10 Home Grade A-Newegg.com

    I don't know what to do here so any help is appreciated.

    :)

  2. I got a new laptop and it already had Windows 10 in its system. "Activate Windows; Go to Settings to activate Windows" was on my screen in the bottom right hand corner.

    Windows 10 came preinstalled on my computer, how do I find the product key?

    Press Windows key + X

    Click Command Prompt (admin)

    Enter the following command:

    wmic path SoftwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey

    Hit Enter

    The product key will be revealed, copy the product key then enter it

    Click Start > Settings > Update & security
    > Activation > Change the product key then enter the new product key then click
    Next to Activate

    If you are unable to activate Windows 10 after all the above and you are certain you have the correct edition installed, then please attempt phone activation:

  3. I got a new laptop and it already had Windows 10 in its system. "Activate Windows; Go to Settings to activate Windows" was on my screen in the bottom right hand corner.

    Original title: Windows 10 Activation

    I got a new laptop and it already had Windows 10 in its system. "Activate Windows; Go to Settings to activate Windows" was on my screen in the bottom right hand corner. I went to settings and pressed activate, but the laptop keeps telling me " Windows is
    unable to reach your company's activation service. Please connect to your corporate network. If you are connected and continue to see this error, contact your system administrator. You can also click on error detail to find the exact error. Error code: 0xC004F074."
    Does buying the laptop online and having it shipped to me have anything to do with this problem? The product key was already put in when I turned on the laptop... I've tried everything to get the activate button to work but nothing has worked out so far. I'm
    really confused and frustrated. Please help.

    Office 365 that comes with Win10 on the new computers I've dealt with is the subscription version as an advertisement feature, only way I know to get it back is to do a System Restore that puts the computer back to the day it shipped or just before you got it.

    I deal with a few acer laptops. Yours should have a recovery partition with the original factory configuration that you can roll back to. This will cause you to lose all data, programs and settings but since it's only a day or two old, that should not be a big deal to start over and do it right this time. If you're lucky, you can just extract the Office trial and reinstall it. Access the Recovery Manager by restarting, then hit F9 repeatedly as soon as you see the ASUS logo until it appears and look over the options. Good Luck

  9. Well, I have an option to reset the PC. Not sure if that will bring back everything that it had on it when I started it up for the first time. It also has the option to keep my files or remove everything.

  10. It's a simple answer. Did you pay for Office? If not, then there's no point in keeping it. Either buy a license or use one of the free alternatives. If you did buy it, you should have the license documented, including ways of reinstalling.
