Questions about reinstallation

Hey, I am currently using Windows7 on my laptop. I want to perform a clean format and reinstall windows as unfortunately the backup service which was shipped with the laptop was broken. Now if I download windows 7 from the Microsoft website can I use the product key on the sticker on the back to reinstall it or would I have to send my laptop to a service centre ?
