Is there a sticker on the top of the back / bottom with the COA sticker with the Key?
As mentioned above, there should be a sticker with the key. Having said that, if the sticker is not there for some reason, then you need to call Dell and request the Recovery Media Set. It will allow you to re-install the operating system without needing to know the Product Key. It will be embedded in the installation files and tied to that particular Service Tag on your computer.

So... make sure you have the Service Tag number available and call this number:


Tell them that your Hard Drive crashed. Nothing more, nothing less. Do not say it was your fault, just that it crashed and you need to re-install the operating system. They may or may not charge you a small fee for the disks.
