Default I bought a new PC. Can I use my old PC Product key to activate?

How did you come by the software on the old PC? If it is an OEM version
that came installed on the PC, then it is only licenced to be used on that
particular PC.

If it was a boxed version that you purchased, you can un-install it from
that PC and then install it on the new one. Probably best to remove the
trial version first.

Hope this helps,

My new PC comes with 6 month trial Office 2007. Can I simple activate my
licence from the old PC by inputting my PRoduct key during activation?
