Hi

Belarc Advisor should list the Product Key for you. 

ShowKeyPlus from the Microsoft Store (probably the best choice).
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/showkeyplus/9pkvzcprx9nv?activetab=pivot:overviewtab

The output is like this....
ShowKeyPlus - Windows Product Key Information

Product Name: Windows 10 Home
Version: 12345.678 (64-bit OS)
Product ID: 00000-00000-00000-AAOEM
Installed Key: 12345-67890-09876-54321
OEM Key: MICRO-SOFTY-WINDO-WSTEN-64BIT
OEM Edition: Win 10 RTM Core OEM:DM


ALSO
KeyFinderInstaller may help.…
https://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/
It gives this…. – CD Key: 12345-67890-09876-54321

ELSE
There is a possibility of finding the same value in the Registry....
USING RegEdit the key is listed below and it’s content also shown.
Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SoftwareProtectionPlatform

BackupProductKeyDefault 12345-67890-09876-54321

Three different names for the same value in 3 different software methods.

Thanks for your reply. But is there any way i can get it directly from hp support team? As now another os is installed on my laptop so i will need to recover win 7 again-which i am avoiding not to remove installed programms- and then check with the mentioned tools.

Let me tell you the full situation, now i have a cracked windows 7 version installed on it. I have tried to reinstall the recovery one, but i am facing an error and it did not complete the installation. So all the above tools unfortunately could not help unless i can do the recovery which is not working :(. So i was trying to find a way to get the product key as it is not clear now on the bottom of the laptop so i can download windows 7 official release from ms site and install it using my official key from hp.

Hi

You don't have an "official" key I believe.

You have a HP OEM key, which is not suitable to download Windows 7 from Microsoft.

 

For OEM versions try Heidoc...

It doesn't get you a key but you do get a download and can make a bootable DVD I believe.

I thought it is an official key as it looks like the product key came with official windows versions. You know that sticker on the bottom of the lap. 

Many many thanks for your support.

Seems i am going to install Linux release ubuntu or arch.

@AhmedSayed 

 

Just so you know why @Lil_Boy_Blue said NO -- HP keeps no records of individual product keys associated with individual PCs.

 

So, there is nothing that HP could have sent you, and @Lil_Boy_Blue already provided the two utilities that could have been used to recover the previous key, either from the Registry or from the BIOS SLIOC table.
