A problem came up with my computer that is either, pay someone to figure out what the issue is, or just erased the hard drive completely and start from scratch. But my question is, If I reinstall windows 7 on the same computer is the product code still assosiated with my computer? or do I need to reinput the product code? Ive already used my product code the amounts windows allows.

As long as it isn't blacklisted by Microsoft it's fine. I installed Vista on my Server PC dozens of times, and the OEM key I have from HP still goes through. You can still use the product key from the PC, don't worry. If it's a virus problem, Microsoft understands.
