If you are lucky you can try calling Microsoft support, however as a reseller who has worked with numerous customers with similar problems, if you lose the account it is tied to, you may have to repurchase.  Once a key is tied to a Microsoft account it is permanent.   On top of that you can only register 10 licenses per Microsoft Account.  MS really is pushing users towards Volume Licensing or Office 365.
