I don't know of any fix for that other than buying a new legal copy. Windows 7 is even more protected than XP, so if you don't have the legal license the product will not activate or if you use some one else's code it will tell you the license number is already in use and will not activate. Lots of folks with laptops have the serial number on the bottom which in ends up getting worn off.....those folks too would have to buy a new license in order to re-install.....it's unfortunate, but you must not lose the product key.

If Windows is still working, there are programs that can find the Product Key Windows is presently using.

E.g. Keyfinder

Keyfinder also finds the Product Key for Microsoft programs.

If Windows is NOT presently working properly, if and only if the problem Windows installation is still intact, Keyfinder has a Load Hive feature that can find the Windows Product Key on a Windows installation that is not being loaded..

See the info about that in the Keyfinder FAQ:
