Backup question

I have a locally built Windows XP computer.  I bought it second hand from a company that went out of business.  I just noticed that there is no COA on the case.  What can I do to back up the hard drive so that I if it fails or there is some other system catastrophe, I can restore the computer to a functional status, understanding that reinstalling the Windows XP operating system doesn't seem to be an option without a COA.
