[ Edited ]

Did a Google search and only came up with  a couple of suggestions.

 

You may have info in your game box on how to register the game.. or

 

Register an Origin account if you don't have one and save the login info.

 

Try entering it in a digital reedeem code system like your Origin client menu.. Origin > Redeem code or..

 

https://activate.ea.com/activategame.do

 

Enter your code in capital letters, with or without dashes ( should be 5 sets of 4 alphanumeric codes)

 

If it's accepted, you should be able to download it from the entry in the Origin client My Games library.

You already have the extent of what we know here about code problems.  You have to follow MLady's guide to the letter.
