MS XP Home activation Telephone No. required

My Nephew wants to reinstal Windows xp home onto hia computer as the old version is faulty.
He gets as far as the Welcome screen and then it just freezes
He has his copy of XP Home but has lost his activation key and we have been told that the best plan is to inform Microsoft and they would issue him a new one so does anyone know the Activation No.
Many thanks for any help ray

Is there a COA sticker on the side of the computer with the keycode on it.

No we cant see it anywhere and we cant use Magic Jelly Bean as we cant get past the Welcome screen
We will try out the contacting Microsoft option and hope they are sympathetic to us
Thanks every one
