This is because the Product Key on sticker is a batch key so they don't have to put a separate sticker on every laptop. The robocall is for MS to sort out the individual key from the batch via the series of numbers traded.

Newer drivers will arrive soon via optional Windows Updates. Find any driver missing in Device manager on the Support DOwnloads webpage for your model.

Suggest you install programs slowly to gauge performance after each. Don't let any programs write themselves into your msconfig>Startup list except AV and gadgets, or they freeload on your RAM/CPU.

Use a lightweight unobtrusive AV like free MS Security Essentials with the perfected Windows 7 Firewall.

After installing everything, clean and order your HD perfectly with state-of-the-art CCleaner and Auslogics Disk and Registry defragger. Then save externally a Win7 Backup Image so you never have to reinstall again - just reimage the HD or replacement using DVD or REpair CD.
