SDL Studio 2011 - Cannot deactivate license due to hard drive failure

I own SDL Studio 2011 (Corporate) and my computer crashed yesterday. I had to put a new hard drive in, and the old computer is no longer available or functioning to deactivate the license. I am unable to use my product since the software thinks I have already used this license. I would greatly appreciate any help or suggestions.

I know you are supposed to return the license first but it is not possible to do from the computer that failed. Does anyone know of any other options?
