comment Is it possible to increase the resolution of an image without using expensive softwares?
As I said, there are better and worse forms of interpolation, but neither of the paint.net nor gimp will do a bad job of enlarging a picture. They will "increase the information resolution" as you put it.

Enlarging the image increases the resolution. They can do better or worse forms of filtering and interpolation, but at least the last two I list will do a good job of that.

comment How to redirect sound to USB headset when plugged in?
Most applications, written against any audio API (DirectSound, DirectShow, Wave, etc.) will switch audio devices on Windows 7. Only applications that specifically choose a particular audio device will not switch.

comment How to redirect sound to USB headset when plugged in?
There are ways a program can pick a particular audio device (rather than the default) which would make this happen. What program are you using? Try Windows Media Player. Does that respond as you expect?

Based on your update, you don't have a working bluetooth driver. Go to your laptop manufacturer and download a driver.

You can't install a 32-bit driver on a 64-bit OS. Sorry. This just isn't going to work.
