Windows 7 Activation Keys were placed on the bottom of the laptop on a Microsoft OEM sticker. If you do not have this sticker then it has been removed. The alphanumeric code is very small and you may need a magnify glass to see, if even 1 digit is incorrect then it will not work. Microsoft intently made 8 and B similar as well as 0 and O (that is a zero and letter O) to help with thrift.  I suggest taking a photo of the sticker with a cellphone and enlarging.
