Windows 7 showing not genuine, error 0x80070005

The background colour of my desktop has turned black and I get error message :- 0x80070005 whenever I switch the laptop on. There also now appear the words :- Windows 7 Build 7600 This copy of Windows is not genuine.



This doesn't make a lot of sense as I bought the laptop a couple of months ago and Windows 7 came already installed. Everything seemed ok till a few days ago.
