How do I find my windows product key? [duplicate]

How do I find out which product key was used to activate Windows?

I'm running Windows Vista now my Laptop came pre-installed with Vista and I have always used the recovery discs to format my system but I want to use a standard copy of vista and I no longer have my key, it rubbed off the bottom of my laptop so i removed it. Is there anyway i can get the key that my recovery discs use and will that be okay with a standard copy of vista home premium like the recovery discs install?
