Microsoft includes the Product key with the documentation that came with the install CD. But if it has been lost there is a remedy.

If the numbers you are talking about are a Microsoft Product Key, read on.

Product key replacement is done solely through Microsoft, but finding the right place to do it can be daunting. Here's how to cut through the red tape, most of it anyhow:

Click here to bring up Microsoft's product replacement page.

Scroll down a few lines.
On the left side, under the second 'More Information' header, click on 'Replacement Product Key'.

This will walk you through the procedure. You'll be up and running in no time.

I got a new computer and cant find cd to load software onto same please help

I'm not sure about your question. Are you saying you can't find the cd player or you can't locate the CD that came with your computer? You don't say if you have a pc, a laptop, notebook or netbook. If you have a netbook, then they don't have CD players installed in them and you would have to purchase an external USB type plug in CD/DVD player. they are about 30 dollars
