Hello. Can someone tell me how to check if my laptop came with Microsoft Office? When i received my laptop just a couple of weeks back, i was told it came with Microsoft Office. However if i open it, it tells me to either Buy, Activate or Try Is it possible to try and check to see if it really came with the laptop or not? I would like to try and sort this out. Thanks in advance.
You would know if you paid for it, because Microsoft Office is an option and usually costs an extra $100.
What happens when you click Activate?
Look at your packing slip.
This laptop was given to me by a relative from the States. I checked in the System configuration for the laptop.
When i click activate it tells me to "Enter your product key"
"Your product key is 25 characters and is typically found in your product packaging."

Your sentence is too vague.. I need more to start with. This is my first laptop in a long time (last one came with XP). I need at least a picture of what to get and maybe some information about what it is, how it looks like. So i can explain it to them over the phone....
A new system would have come with Office 365 or Office 2016. If you purchased a license for it with the system, see here to activate:
If you didn't purchase a license, the system came with only a trial version of Office and you'll need to purchase either a license or a subscription.
The original owner has the product key on a cardboard paper.
It came with the laptop all the paperwork.
Maybe they threw it away because they didn't know what it was.
Then you are out of luck.
