Hello
I've just bought a new Dell Inspiron laptop with windows 7, and i'm having problems installing MS Office.

I've got a copy of MS Office that can be installed on 3 pc's...my new laptop being the third, but when I insert the disc it doesn't read it at all!

Can anyone help?

Thanks

Can it read other disks? Have you checked the disk to make sure its clean, sometimes a small dirty patch can stop it from being installed. Wipe it with a soft lint free cloth wiping from the centre out.
Not being able to read the disk has nothing to do with how many times it's been installed, that's a harware problem, either drive or disk.
