    Can't activate Office after warranty (+ weird colors on Modern apps)

    Hi.

    So, I just got back my T100 from warranty - my motherboard and docking station were replaced. I checked in the service and everything was fine, but then I returned home...

    First what I've tried was installing Office. A surprise! Trying to activate my product resulted in a message, that my I've reached my activation limit. I mean, come on, I'm activating it for the second time because ASUS Service reinstalled my whole Windows and now I can't use Office? Is it a bug or something? What should I do?

    Also, I've encountered a very weird problem. Most of my modern, pre-installed apps (Mail, Contacts, Reader) change the brightness and saturation of the screen making them look bleak and ugly. IE, desktop and Start seems fine, but those apps just look so weird... Any ideas?

    Sorry for my English.
    Any help?

    Ok, so my second problem is now fixed - it was Asus Reading Mode which dimmed screen on those specific apps. Nothing to worry about.

    But I still can't activate office and I need help with this...

    I think you will have to contact Microsoft Support. I Googled "activation for office" and this is one of the links that came up. It is two years old. There are a couple of others that also turn up in a search. Good luck.

    activation for office failed because of usage limite reached when i - Microsoft Community

    A lot of software links it's registration to the motherboard information so a new motherboard is the same as a new computer, and so, you would need a new Microsoft Office registration number.
    If none of the above methods work you will need to contact Microsoft (probably) or Asus (maybe) and get a new registration number.
    Good luck

    Okay, I just got a call from Microsoft Customer Service and with a little assistance of a nice lady, I activated it with a special code. For now, it works and I hope there won't be similar problems if I'll need to do a recovery.

    So good luck taivadlc, just e-mail MS and they'll call you back.

    Do what is suggested and do a phone activation. Its all automated. You enter in the your registration key, tell the automated system it isn't installed on any other machine and it'll give you a, I think, 30 digit number to punch in to office and it'll activate it.

    Done. Its a 5 minute process at most.

    Just do it.
