Reactivate Office 2010 after hard drive replacement

  Hangus 21:49 PM 24 Feb 13

I have a HP laptop, and the hard drive failed. It was replaced under warranty, but it came with Office 2010 preinstalled originally, and I bought an activation key card for it. Anyone know how I reinstall/reactivate office 2010 on my new hard drive as the key card only allowed for one activation. I still have the original key card, but cannot figure out how to activate it again on the new hard drive. There must be a way without buying a new key card?

If you know the version of Office 2010 that you had installed then you can download an iso version of it from here burn that to a disc and install it on your new hard drive. Use your existing keycode for the installation. If activation is refused you should be given a phone number to call where you can explain the reason for the new install.
