Proof Of Purchase

Contact Microsoft with the date purchased (receipt) and the UPC that is on the box. if you have the manual they will also ask for a scan of that as well.

After going through the whole "recovery" process they can either make you scan and send the information by email/snail mail, Or send the real information via snail mail. This will then take either 1day-3weeks for them to get back to you with a new key with the old one deactivated.
