The one in the back of the manual?
You can get it if you still have your other computer
On your other computer
Click alt+delete+ctrl, click run in yor start menu or task manager
type in 'redegit'
a box will pop up.
Click the little "+" next HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE at the top
then click on the "+" next to SOFTWARE
then either the "+" next to EA GAMES OR ELECTRONIC ART (i'd say Ea games is better)
Click on the Sims 2 title and look. (don't click the "+" and if you did, dont click the 1.0 box!)
next to (Default), your number should be there, or you can look at the rest just incase you rearranged them and rename or something like that!
If you have problems or this is NOT the way to do it.
Tell me and i'll explain how to get what you tell me.

If you registered the game with EA or if the game is still installed on any computer this link will help: http://www.sims2wiki.info/wiki.php?title=Game_Help:Finding_Your_License_Key
That link has a program that will go through the registry for you and tell you the code, if you don't want to do it yourself.

Otherwise you can get a new code from EA for $10 US. This link brings you EA's information on getting a new serial: http://tinyurl.com/replacement-serial
