It will be on the original Media or if it is a HP or Dell it will be on a sticker on the front/top of the PC.

Belarc would have been my first choice also but you can try one of these, if not you'll need to contact microsoft customer support to receive a replacement key.

☠ MASQ ☠Commented:
You won't be able to recover the Key this way.  Your version has been activated using a MAK ( Multiple Activation Key ) so Windows records the fact it has been activated but to reactivate it needs to be reconnected to the Key Server, directly by Microsoft or by telephone activation.  The Key is not retained on the PC only the fact that the system is active.

Key finders won't work.

Check Microsoft Volume Activation V2.0 for details.
