If you know the key (check the COA sticker on the bottom of the laptop), just download a copy of Win7 from here and install afresh. –  Karan Jun 13 '13 at 16:55

Just boot to the CD and perform a "clean install" with the new key.

There is no Clean Install in my CD recovery, just Repair, Install Driver, Select Recovery selection. –  SeanPogz Jun 13 '13 at 3:42
