Product key invalid!

I have installed fresh W7 Pro x64, and Office 2007 Small Business Edition SBE.
Every time I try to type my Product key (which I have checked several times and it is correct) I got message saying that my key is invalid.
To be honest I am not entierly sure whether I should call Microsoft and explain the whole palava or there is something better.

What kind of license is this? Is it a retail package with a product key inside? Also make sure you dont mix up the B with Eight and O with zero.

I would suggest the quickest & easiest way would be to contact Microsoft yourself.

Yeah I have checked eight against B and zero against O but unfortunately is still the same.
This laptop is from the company where I work. We have plastic card where you can find unique product key. At the back of the card you have ritten this :
"Because you are buying a Microsoft Office Ready PC, your new PC has Microsoft Office Small Business 2007 preinstalled. The Key on the front of this card is your Product Key. Keep this card. You will need it to reinstall your product."

and there is little bit more about like Backup disk can be ordered using this Key at...
Microsoft site...

Are you having trouble activating windows or office or both? The key card you're talking about, is it for windows or office?

Sorry this card is just for Office but I am having problem activating both products.
For the time being my concern is Office.

For Office, only the company can help you since they will know the kind of licenses they have purchased, their nos. and validity.

For windows, I saw your other thread. If this is the same sony vaio computer and you've clean installed the same edition that came preinstalled, you can activate with the sticker key using phone activation.

OK. I will call them.
Honestly I wanted to avoid any kind of call but now I realize that would be the best.
Thank you.
