The certificate of authenticity should be on the bottom of the laptop. Write down the key and input it to activate Windows.

Go to control panel/system
At the bottom, you will see some options for system activation.

Does it not have a place to change the product key?

If not, check in the bios to see that the system date is accurate, and consistent with the date in windows.
MS will check and determine that your copy is attempring to fool the system by constantly changing the system date to get the free 30 day usage.
