    I recently purchased a new laptop. Can I reload Microsoft Office 2003
    from the dead laptop to the new one? If I need to contact Microsoft who
    or where do I contact? Thanks.

    If the copy of Office was an OEM one, then no, you cannot legally transfer
    it.
    If the copy was a Retail one, then install it from the installation CD's

    You need to load MS Office 2003 from the install disk. If you call MS,
    ask for "technical support".

    Did you purchase Office separately and install it on the laptop? If yes,
    then you can use the same disk to install on another system. You may be
    required to call Microsoft to explain the new installation or maybe not.
    If you have an OEM version of Office, it is meant only to be used on the
    Laptop that is dying on you and is not supposed to be used on another
    computer. Depending on the license that you have Office may be used on
    both a laptop and a desktop computer with the same license. If you have
    any question about what license you have, you could always just try and
    load it on another system and see what happens. You will be given a number
    to call during verification if you are required to call someone to verify
    the installation. If you don't have the disks and are just talking about
    cloning the installation onto another system or hard drive, my experience
    is that there will be problems. Good luck.

    What does your EULA say?

    Yes. Just use the MS Office CD you own.
