My HD went out on my MBP. When I got the MBP new 6 months ago, I also purchased Microsoft Office Student/Teacher Edition. There are 3 codes on the back of the box. The first one I used for my computer before the HD went out. The 2nd one was used for a different computer. I have a third unused code I could load on to my computer that has the new HD in it. My question is, do I need to use that 3rd code? If I do, does backing up my HD periodically also prevent me from purchasing Microsoft Office again if my HD goes out for some reason or I get my computer replaced under warranty?

So you own 3 licenses then. Use the one you used the first time since it's the same Machine. Just a new Hard Drive.

When you go to reinstall Office, just enter the code you originally used to install it. There's no need to use a different code as long as it's being used on the exact same machine.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
