If your system is running, use Recover Keys (recoverkeys.com, if I remember correctly). That will tell you.

If you want the Product ID, right click on Computer and select Properties. You can find the product ID there.

Is your system running? Will it run in Safe Mode?

Just so I am clear:  You can find the product key of a running machine. That key is for that machine.

Otherwise, you need to purchase a product key (license) as such keys are not freely available.

Please let us know.  Thanks.

You can buy a new Windows 7 DVD from EBay and Microsoft do not sell Windows 7 anymore.

Just use the PC's factory recovery system to restore it to it's factory delivered state. Such a recovery shouldn't require you to insert a key, as they are pre-activated with the manufacturer's key.

Check the manual or on the manufacturer's site for how to restore it to the factory state using the recovery partition, or boot it to the recovery media you made when you first got the PC.

If you have a sticker on the case then chances are you have an OEM of Windows supplied  by the manufacturer.  If the HDD has failed you'll need  to order reinstallation media from the manufacturer (this does not require an activation key to be entered), if just the active partition has failed and the drive is otherwise OK then you should be able to boot to a recovery partition which doesn't need a key.  If the motherboard has failed then unfortunately unless you're entitled to a warranty replacement of the board your license for Windows 7 is no longer valid (unless you are in one of the EU states where different OEM rules apply).
