Office product key incorrect after reformat of computer

After reformatting my laptop which is running on the Vista OS, I reinstalled 
microsoft office 2007 standard using the CD provided when I bought my laptop. 
I could reinstall office 2007 however I am facing problems with activating 
the product. Each time i keyed in the product key provided on the CD sleeve 
of the office 2007 CD, i was notified that the product key is incorrect and i 
have to key in the correct product key. I've tried several times and also 
rebooted my laptop but to no avail. I have also made sure that I've read all 
the digits and letters correctly. Is it possible to find any solutions for my 
problem?

This is a normal occurrence with OEM versions of Office. Product Key changes at all 
consequential installs. Contact your OEM

It says "The key is incorrect. Verify that you have the correct key, and then 
retype it.
