Customer Question

Yesterday I had to reset my pc to factory settings and am trying to reinstall all the programme I previously had. One being Office 2013. I have the product key but it won't allow me to reinstall as it says it is already used(by me of course)! I really do not want to have to buy another copy when I have already one registered to you. How do I go about reinstalling it please without the product key being rejected?

Hi Jenny,

You will need to have a replacement key issued for your software since you are only allowed to install it once. Even though it is the same computer, once the key is used, it cannot be used again but Microsoft can deactivate that code and issue you a free replacement key.

What is your phone number? I will have a Microsoft tech call you within the next 60 minutes
