Dell Inspiron 1545 Hard Drive Failure

This question is not answered

I have a Dell 1545 that will not boot and diagnostics indicates the hard drive is faulty.  As there were no OS discs that came with the system how can I restore windows once I buy a new hard drive?  I do not have a back up disc as I got it from a friend.  If I purchase a replacement hard drive from dell will they image the new drive for me or are they going to make be buy a new windows product key?
