I think most of your problems arise from the WMI failure.
Repair install is a necessity, in my opinion.

Also the stick at the bottom of the laptop says 'Windows 7 Pro Natl Academic Only OA' and the code is different from the key in my computer.

You have a readable COA sticker (Certificate Of Authentication) on desktop. Correct? It says win7 home premium ... correct? You can read the product key on the sticker?

What's the problem?
