Welcome,
You can try the appropriate phone number, here. I will be back to give you a piece of software that will get the actual key used to activate your computer.

Microsoft Volume Licensing - Activation Centers
The above numbers seem to be valid for individual purchases, too. At least you could ask them, the correct number if the one given is not valid.

Download and use number 1, JellyBean. I will give you the actual number used to activate your computer.
