Windows 7: Windows is not Genuine?

Windows is not Genuine?

I've been using my laptop for about six months and just now, out of completely no where my windows is not genuine. I seriously don't know what just happened. I will admit, I have pirated Windows Ultimate, but never on this laptop. I don't pirate windows and stuff like that on this laptop. Why in the world, would it out of no where tell me it's not genuine when it is, and has been ever since I bought my laptop?

On this Laptop it's Home Premium and I didn't pirate it. Like I said before, if I would've pirated windows I would've pirated Ultimate, not Home Premium.

Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!
