I purchased a used Toshiba laptop Qosimo G55-Q801.  It originally had windows vista on it and some one put windows 7 ultimate.  The screen seems too dark.  I haven't found a way to brighten it up.  Could it possible that the right drivers are not installed?  How would I find out and is there a way to correct this.  I have tried all my screen settings and nothing helps.  Second question, it has been loaded with 64 bit.  I have some programs that will not run in 64 bit.  The original COE # for Vista is worn off.  If I install a code finder and find the COE for the Windows 7 and I have a copy of Windows 7 that is 32 bit but no COE # can I install it and use the other COE#?

Look at the top of the key board left side should see two keys with tiny sun bursts with up & down symbols.

 

You can down load a copy of SIW from www.gtopala.com/ look under licensees you will find the key for your COA.

But: will this work when I install a 32 bit system?  Can I use the number that shows up for my 64 bit system?  Is there any way I could save my Windows 7 64 bit in case anything goes wrong I can go back to it.  Also I have Microsoft Word came on my system I do not have the license to install it again on a 32 bit.  Will I loose it?
