My barely 12 months old laptop had to go problems.

This answer was rated:

My barely 12 months old laptop had to go for in for some problems. When it was returned to me the hard drive had been completely wiped including Microsoft Office. As you can imagine I was furious as I had purchased the laptop which had Microsoft installed including Excel and Power point. Luckly had I saved all my documents and photos on a separate desk top hard drive.
I have finally been given the money to purchase Microsoft office Home and Student 2013 but I am having difficulty getting it activated. Can someone help me please as I am becoming very stressed. Thank you

From the card that was in the pack that I purchased.

Can you tell me please exactly what is written on the card Maggie?
Not the code, but everything else.

Maggie, I dont want the code, I want everything else written on the card please.
I can also do these steps for you directly on the computer, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
