Pre-installed Windows recovery on new hard drive

Q

My Dell laptop's hard drive has completely burned out, not able to boot at all. Is there a way to install windows again on a new hard drive? The number on the sticker on the base of my laptop has worn. Will I have any luck or will I have to purchase a new copy of windows?

If you can't read the number on the sticker anymore, you'll either need to:
Buy a new license key for Windows
or
Contact the PC manufacturer (the company that built the computer) and ask if they can give you a replacement product key because your sticker is worn.
I recommend #2 first.
