Did you order your Sony with MS Office, & pay for the option.

Microsoft Office was preinstalled but it just needs the product key to activate,,,,which is neither in the laptop,nor with discs since windows 8 does not include them.....heard the key is inside BIOS but have no idea on how to extract it

The Windows 8 Product key is coded in the UEFI/BIOS firmware, not the MS office Product key.


Did you pay for one of MS Office the options?

Office is usually not activated ever- If it were an actual part of the package, yo would have been given documentation for it with a serial number/Key - AND it would probably have been activated from the start - But I've worked on hundreds of brand new PCs and they never just GIVE you Office.

it also has an option for ONE year of trial...if i go for the trial,and LATER I figure out the key,does the trial nullify the activated version even though you might later find the key?

I would imagine the student versions give you about 180 days of use. Even the pro version of Office 2010 works in clumps of 180 days, and needs to be reactivated after that. Usually you can just re-arm it.

Sony price for Office Home & Student 2013 is £89, no Student trial.
