OK for this issue you have 2 possible solutions based on what I can only assume. If you want a more detailed explaination, please post more information.
1, If your can remove the hard drive and mount it in another machine, you can google various utilities that can retrieve your product key from data files on the hard drive. Let me know if you need help with this process. afterwards, you can reinstall windows on this HD and be right as rain.
2, if your drive has actually crashed and you can't find cd-key, then you have no choice but to purchase another cd with key. best option if it is too expensive in your country is to maybe purchase a copy from overseas like the US. you can always install language packs afterwards to tweak it to a more comfortable language.

If the hard drive is still alive, you can use a Key generator or "Key gen" on the old hard drive, it will search for all installed versions of windows and give the key that it was registered to. Magic Jellybean key finder is a great free program.
