What do you mean, the activation key? If you bought it new, it should already be usable. If it is a pirated copy, well, then there is your problem, and you will need to buy a legit copy of Windows. Here is Microsoft’s guide to determining whether you have counterfeit software. It also includes a link to report counterfeit software, which may also be of use to you.
