Hi, Nicole and welcome to Tom's Hardware Forums. The key you found on the base of the laptop refers to your Operating System and not to Microsoft Office products. You should have a CD or DVD case with that key printed on it or if you're converting a Trial version, perhaps they e-mailed you the key.

Like Saga Lout says, the key for Windows will not work for Office. Did you buy Office or did it come pre-installed with the laptop?

If you dont get it working, just go scoop up OpenOffice instead of spendin a few hundred for MS office
