If your computer had an OEM key it should b on a sticker attached to the case. Some OEM keys are tied to motherboard models or BIOS so it may not work on a new motherboard, in which case you will need to purchase a new one.

Some software have registration cards, if it was sent in then you could contact the makers and explain yourself and get another copy.

The registration number could also be on the case,  the cd box or on the users manual.

You might get a cheap one on ebay, with a bit of trolling.

Hiya,

If you can prove you have purchased a copy of the OS, a receipt etc, then call Microsoft Services on 0800 800 004 and they should be able to help.

Nick.
