Buy a Windows 7 DVD from a software/PC store. The Product Key is supplied with it.
Boot your PC from the DVD to start the installation. It will automatically activate/validate itself online if it can find an internet connection.

You can borrow a W7 DVD disk from a friend and use it to install W7 on the same machine that the key code came with. You have to choose the right edition of W7 while installing( Home Premium, Professional, etc.). Otherwise, the key code will not work. If it is a different machine you are talking about, I am afraid you have to purchase a retail W7 disk.

What, exactly, is the problem you are having at the moment? Do you need to reinstall Windows or is your system running at the moment but telling you that you need to validate your copy of Windows?

If it is an oem system - one that came with Win7 preinstalled with no additional disks - then, if your system is running you can create recovery disks that will allow you to reinstall Windows. Alternatively you may have the option of pressing a key-combination at boot to access a hidden recovery partition. You need to provide more details of your system make etc. to get a more precise answer.
