Depends what version he has on the computer, different versions use a different key. Chances are that if he cant look after his CD, then his key will be lost aswell

if it has a coa sticker that has your serial number on so all you need is a xp cd if you have an xp home cd try it first otherwise take it to the computer repair shop but they will probably charge you for a whole new version of xp or at least for the repair
