Office Home and Student 2013 error message with yellow triangle

I have been using my word and excel they were working fine. Now there is a yellow triangle  top right corner by my initials. I finally got it to show me only for a moment what it means. Error Message: did not realize I should have copied it down but
after error message it said to sign-out and sign back in. I have never had to sign in before the Office was installed in Dec 2013 by Best Buy. All they returned was the card they had used to download. When I tried to click on sign in it does nothing. The error
seems to have the word program very mixed up as it will preform some task but seems to lock me out of other normal things I usually do like spacing or changing font size just to name a few. I already checked for all updates on my computer per your sites suggestions.
How do I make the error message /yellow triangle go away and allow me to use the office home and student 2013 like it was working before. Please help I live alone, and near 60, live in the boondocks, and do not have any computer people within a 4 hour drive
round trip. Thank you

Now there is a yellow triangle  top right corner by my initials.
As per the description, it looks like an issue with your microsoft account. Does the error message look like below?
Sorry, we can't get to your account right now.
To fix this, please sign in again.
Sign in
You mentioned that "a yellow triangle  top right corner by my initials", you probably have already signed in with an acocunt. If you remember this account, I'd suggest you click
File>Account on the tab, click Sign out under
User Information, and then sign-in again. If you don't have this account, you probably need to contact the retailer for it.
If issue persists, please post back with the details of your system environment, then we will take a further look.

  • Office home and student 2013 product key

    I did a System Reset on 7/28/2015. After that I lost Office Home and Student 2013 which I purchased and was installed on my laptop when I got it. I contacted HP and I was emailed an Office product key via email. I have entered it several times and even had a friend enter it. It will not activate the software. It says it is an invalid product key for a different version. I could not call HP today because I was away. Could I have received the wrong product key. Control Panel/Programs says Office is installed. But it will not open. I have been on HP's website and Microsoft's looking for answers. I certainly need help. Let this serve as a cautionary tale to others. ALWAYS – as I've always done before this – purchase the FULL VERSION of OFFICE – with the CD. Even though it costs more. It is worth the extra cost – to not have the headache I'm having with losing Office. Answers greatly appreciated – thanks.

    Hi ,   Thank you for your update. You should not have to do a recovery to regain your Home Office.  I suggest you contact Microsoft as they must have a record of your purchase and be able to help you.  Have all your purchase information available for them to check.  I provided contact link for Microsoft and a phone number. If you click on the contact Microsoft link, you should be able to contact them for assistance with this issue.Microsoft has a record someplace or you trial version would have expired.  To answer your other question yes there are posts  in the forum  with a link to the recovery documents, but I am happy to provide them for you.  HP PCs - Performing an HP system recovery (Windows 8) You will notice an option to backup your personal files to prevent data loss.. If you have not done a backup now is the perfect time.HP PCs - Restoring Files that were Backed Up Using HP Recovery Manager (Windows 8) Once you have your Office software running again you may wish to consider creating an iso image for future use should the need arise.Here is a link from How-To Geek that will explain what that is.   What You Need to Know About Creating System Image Backups For your convenience I am also providing HP PCs - Creating a Recovery Image on Discs or Saving a Recovery Image to a USB Flash Drive (Windows 8)  Hope this helps!

  • Is Office Home and Business 2013 fully compatible with Sharepoint Online (Office 365)?

    My client recently upgraded 3 Windows 7 PCs (2-32 & 1-64-bit OS) from Office 2007 32-bit (which was actually working fine against Exchange/SharePoint Online) to Office Home and Business 2013 (32-bit)
    Now, for all 3 PCs, while Office 2013 Word/Excel can open, check out/in, and save SharePoint Online files, there is ALWAYS a 2 minute delay in closing the file which is apparently waiting for the Local Security Authority call to return. This seems
    to indicate an issue related to SharePoint security on the client side.
      Problem Event Name: AppHangXProcB1
      Application Name:        
      Application Version:    
      Waiting on Application Name: 
    This is the Local Security Authority Security Support Provider Interface Remote Procedure Call (LSA SSPI RPC)
    My client has 66 licenses for SharePoint Online (Plan 2) and 73 Exchange Online (Plan 1) "stand alone" services. The same failure is happening on 3 Win 7 PCs. All of which I've carefully reviewed against the MS Office trouble shooting guides (start
    Windows OS w/out non-MS services, Word/Excel safe mode w/out add-ons, O365 readiness checks, Office repair, etc.). We have PCs running Win 7 (32 & 64-bit) w/Office 365 ProPlus & Office Professional Plus 2013 that work fine. it's JUST these 3 Win 7
    PCs that were upgraded from Office 2007 to Office Home and Business 2013 that have the 2 min. SharePoint file close time.
    Can you please confirm that Office Home and Business 2013 is compatible w/SharePoint Online
    at least for Excel and Word?
    The "slow close" problem can be demonstrated on multiple site collections/sub sites and w/Excel & Word docs in doc libs and lists
    After many hours capturing information, following the MS Office trouble shooting guides, and repairing the Office install, I've had no luck in resolving this.While Word/Excel will eventually close SharePoint Online files after about
    2 minutes, this is certainly unacceptable. Otherwise, locally stored files close normally and new files were created by the Office 2013 Excel/Word for this testing.
    Any thoughts or guidance would be appreciated.  

    Hi raygabe,
    I couldn't find the document mentioned there is any compatibility between Office365 SharePoint online and Office Home and Business 2013 version, I would recommend that you check if the issue could be reproduced on other Win7 machines installed with Office
    Home and Business 2013 installed directly instead of upgrading from Office2007, see if issue is related to Office application upgrade.
    I also recommend that you post this issue on our dedicated Office365 SharePoint online forum and Office 2013 forum for a better assistance with more experts regarding this issue from the following links.

  • Office Home and Student 2010 Install problems with a Key Code Err..

    I had to install a new hard drive, lost everything..So I upgraded to Windows 7 Professional ..
    I own a the 2010 Home and Student CD bought at the Microsoft store...Doesn't come with Outlook...
    So I ordered the Home and Business 2010 disc with Service Pack 1 Included, this has 2010 outlook ...It loaded and worked fine up to the point I had to replace my Drive with New Windows 7 Pro...
    Everything loaded find, but every time I try and use it, its acts like it is caught in some kind of loop...It keep trying install and configure, then ask for my Key Code every time, sort of like a OLMAP132.Dll err...I did manage to make it work once, I even
    got back the test email from Microsoft after setting up Outlook....Then when I rebooted the system, this same loop action started ...
    I have uninstalled this at least 4 times, searched for anything with ties to Microsoft office, and uninstalled it..Then did a New Clean Install...Still getting this key Code question every time I open up a Office program....So, I am saying without a doubt,
    2010 Office Home and Student and Business WILL NOT RUN on Windows 7 professional ......If you have any idea how to fix this..Please respond with facts on how to repair this please....

    Greta,,,After down loading ( Off Cat ) tools...I saved that program...However, there is another major problem with Your Instructions I ran into...It seems I'm not the trusted source to change files such as the Mapi32.dll files..So I was unable to attempt
    your repair ...However I have found instructions for the task, but it seems very complicated for sure.. Here are the instructions, and I  would like for you and maybe a co-worker to check these.. before I make any changes in system..
    How to Change the Trusted Installer name...
    1. Right Click on the File Or directory.
    2.Click On properties, on the Right Click menu.
    3.Click On "" Security "" tab

  • Office Home and Student 2013 on Windows 8.1

    I bought the above software for a new laptop from a company called Information Technology Clear Limited. I downloaded it using the key they sent me. To start with it worked on and off, opening some documents, not others, then telling
    me it couldn't save the documents that I had amended, giving me 'open elsewhere' messages, then saving them after I kept trying.
    Then it reached a point where it wouldn't open anything, even to get a new blank document.
    I have tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it twice. Still not working.
    Anyone know what the problem is or will I just have to resort to using my old laptop for paperwork?

    By "open elsewhere", is the document shared via network? If so, there may be other users who are working on it at the same time so you can't save your changes on it.
    As I'm not sure about the exact error message, please provide more details about this issue, such as what the exact error message is, and some screenshots will be preferred.
    Please also make sure the Office is already activated.

  • Error 1704 - Can't install Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007

    I am attempting to install Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 on my windows 8.
    I ran the setup like normal and it went 100% but froze and nothing else happened.
    I then looked into a few threads and saw that I should run it in compatibility mode. When I did this I got an error message, which stated, "Error 1704. An installation for Microsoft Office Office 64-bit components 2007 is currently suspended. You must
    undo these changes made by that installation to continue. Do you want to undo those changes?"
    Seems simple, but when I click yes, the error message immediately comes back up (which just continues no matter how many times I press yes. So I press no and it ends....
    I don't know much about computers but I need to get my resume in to a job ASAP!

    Basically i have just got my first Apple MacBook and i have the Pro version, so when i bought it i found out that it doesn't already have an office or word type of product in it, so i decided to buy microsoft office home and student for mac, which i was told would be fine on my macbook.
    when i installed it yesterday i decided to start working on a word document and tried to save it onto my usual memory stick that i generally use all the time. Upon saving it and trying to reopen it, it wouldnt let me do this...came up with this ...

    I was looking for help with this same problem on my Wifes MBP but with Excel, while I was looking for solutions, I tried installing Messenger again, fixing disk permissions with disk utility, as well as other things, none worked. Then I was looking for where this nasty mbukernel file lived.
    That was when I noticed that "Microsoft" was in the /Applications folder instead of the "/Applications/Microsoft Office 2011", so I moved the Microsoft back into the office folder and wallah it all works as intended.
    Hopefully that will help yourself and others with this obscure problem.

  • Windows 8 and MS Office Home and Student 2010 Compatibility...

    I am looking at buying the HP P7-1414 desktop.  I currently own MS Office Home and Student 2010.  Will my MS be compatible with the Widows 8 on the P7?

    Hello celliottii!
    Welcome to the forum! That’s a great question. While I was pretty confident that Office 2010 would be compatible with Windows 8, I still wanted to make sure for you. I checked with Microsoft and verified that it indeed is compatible. Please feel free to reach out if you have any more questions!
    Thanks for posting!
