Unable to activate windows due to a missing product key character

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 64bit
Nature Of The Problem: The sticker on the bottom of the laptop has some characters erased which is why i am unable to activate my windows. I downloaded windows 7 and burned it and boot installed it without any problems, however i am unable to activate it. Please also check the image attached to this post to see the sticker itself.

Please help me out with my problem, that would be really helpful.
Thanks.

Please remove your image -- as soon as possible! I can make out nearly all the letters, and with a little guessing, could probably figure out the two I can't see clearly. The first person to guess these properly can easily steal your product key.

Looks like I posted the wrong link.
Your only answer is to contact HP and order recovery media for the model of your laptop.
