If you own a hard copy of the game, you can download a crack and use it.

its better to own a copy of the game and a CD key. It gives you more benefits. Like without having to worry about the bugs/virus the cracks might provide, or the ability to update or play online.

if he still have the CD, he wont need a crack

there are some games where you can find the CD key if you have already installed it. I just dont know how. I think its something to do with your registry.

Best thing to do is search through the registry. Here for example, is where I found the my key to CoD4. Now other games can be in other places, so just look around.

But if he had a crack, he most likely wouldn't need a serial key.

almost every game that has a serial key requires you to insert the key before installing.
