Carlos,if the number on the back of the laptop is not registering,look for the original disc & see if that number works.

The microsoft label on the bottom will be for your Operating System (XP or Vista) This will not work for MS Office. You will need to get the 25 digit product key from the original certificate which would have come with the Office product. The certificate (A5 sized - no not Audi A5 but paper A5) looks a bit like a bank note with a silver strip embedded in the paper.

If you know which version of Office it is, I can probably 'liberate' a product key for you.

Remember Carlos, when you are turning the laptop over to look at it you are actually reading it backward. Try typing it in backwards as if you were looking down on it through the laptop

Carlos,

I'm sure that open office or even Word 95 is just as good.

If you are asking about basic licensing questions then i'm sure you are not going to be doing anything advanced.

Here's what versions of office exist (or existed)

Office 95
Office 97
Office 2000
Office 2003
Office 2007

I would put my money on 2003 or 2007.

Go to

Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs

Then scroll down to Microsoft Office ... it'll show you what version you have.
Something like Microsoft Office Standard 2003.
There are lots of variants of office.

If you threw out your box with the hologram then you are screwed.
Normally the hologram should be on the CD packet for office.

The cost for a new bit of paper is anywhere in the region of 170+ depending upon variant of Office 2007 you want!
