The Windows 10 version you have installed on your system is a non licensed version. It seems it has not been activated. Even if the version is non genuine, if it activated properly on your system you will not face any issues.
Only option left for you as of now would be to get the OS installed at your nearest computer store. They normally install an OEM version and successfully activate it. Unless your OS is activated, it will stop functioning in three days.

If the computer is asking for product key that means it has lost the activation details. You need to use the key on your product manual or the computer manual. Some of the times your bill has this key. And you can also call the Microsoft support for this type of the key.

Once you enter this key then you can able to login and do things properly. I suggest you to take the computer to the nearest hardware shop. This way you can make sure that the product is properly license and usable.

Since you have installed windows 10 from 8.1 on your laptop and asking product key, it could be either crack version you installed or some OS driver corrupted if it is a genuine Win10 OS.

Now, you know better about installed software, thus, if you would like to continue with Win10 then follow the procedure given or re-install it. And, the same case for Windows 8.1 too, it means, you have to re-install it.

If the Windows operating system you are using is a legal copy, just enter the key mentioned on the CD cover, bill etc,. If the problem still persists, you must contact customer care or reinstall the operating system again. On the other hand, if your windows operating system is not a legal copy, you should remove the operating system entirely from your computer and then install a lower version of windows. The problem occurs again but it would not lead to switching off the system when key is not entered but the key is asked when ever you want to update the windows operating system to higher versions. This is the case with many computers as pirated copies from internet are used much now a days in place of legal copies due to cost.

Hope this answer helps to solve your problem.
