lost my windows 7 serial key

i have windows 7 home premium which was already installed when i bought the laptop. But the sticker below the laptop which shows the serial key has been faded out and is not visible at all. And i have lost my recovery cd's too. Smiley Sadso i want to be on a safer side before my system crashes and not have the trouble running for the lost serail key.

   so could any of u help me how i can get back my windows serial key? or how do i contact and talk to the hp officials directly on recovering my serial key.? or is there any other alternative way?

 

i really appreciate if someone could me help me out.

 

thank you

HP or Microsoft will not have any record of your personal key on that sticker, nor will they give you another one.

 

 

You can order recovery media here for a small fee, you will not need the key on that sticker when using this recovery media.

No you cannot do any partitioning with the recovery CD's, you would need to use a regular Windows 7 installation DVD.
