How can I contact Adobe support to get help with deactivating my cs4 license on a computer that I cannot access anymore?

Time:October 11

My mac laptop recently went kaput. So I got a new one and I restored my most recent time machine backup to it. The restore went well, but I am not unable to open my cs4 programs.
When I try, I get a message that says "Licensing for this product has stopped working..." and it gives an error code 150:30
I have tried looking for solutions myself, but nothing that I have seen on the forums has been able to resolve the issue. As far as I can tell, I think that I have to reinstall my master collection and reactivate it, however, in order to do that, I think that I will need to deactivate my old version, that is installed on my dead laptop.
So, I need help with a couple things.
1. I need to get in touch with adobe support in order to get my license deactivated. But the new adobe support system just basically sends me to the forums without providing any way to get in touch with an actually adobe support person directly.
2. I think that I will need a link to download my install media because my original media came on a series of disks, but my new laptop does not have a disk drive.
Thanks in advance for your help.
Cheers,
James
