Sorry for you hell--been there. Unfortunately, I hate Vista. Many people think that it won't work properly unless you have a min. of 2048 MG AND a dual-core processor---endless conflict messages. This isn't really a good suggested solution--just bear in mind that you may need to upgrade in order to fix. Because you purchase Ultimate, you are entitled to Mircosoft help at no charge, rather than $24/call or whatever. They are the people who perpetrated Vista on us before it was ready, and without warning about the enormous memory and CPU requirements--so it is their problem, not yours. Get them to fix it, tell you what you need, and if they cant fix it, I'd go back to XP for another year and get your money back. Good luck.

I have recently installed windows 7 to a fujitsu amilo li 2727


I have been through this myself, the software you are missing is called Launch Manager. Browse to Li 2727 on http://ts.fujitsu.com/support/downloads.html and download the drivers for vista, verified working on win7 ultimate. Install launch manager and the wireless + brightness hotkeys will work again without any further setup!

Upgrade vista home premium


As per my knowledge, there is no version of Vista called Vista Professional like in Windows XP.
Make sure what is the version to which you want to upgrade to from Vista Home Premium to Vista Business or Vista Ultimate.
The available versions of Vista Operating Systems along with the features supported from the Link below :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/compare-editions/default.aspx

However, if you want to Upgrade the current version of Vista to a higher version like Vista Business or Vista Ultimate, you need to purchase Vista Anytime Upgrade kit from any retail store or directly from Microsoft.
You can find the required information related to Anytime Upgrade Kit from the link below :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/anytime-upgrade-overview.aspx

However, make sure that you had created the Recovery Disks for your notebook using which you will be able to reinstall the preinstalled Operating Sytem along with all the Preinstalled Applications and Drivers after which you need to use the Vista Upgrade Kit to upgrade to higher version of Vista.
However, if you are currently having a 32 Bit Vista preinstalled in the Notebook, it is not possible to upgrade to a 64 Bit Vista since you can upgrade only a 32 Bit of Operating System to a higher version of 32 Bit Operating System and a 64 Bit Operating System to a higher version of 64 Bit Operating System.
Hope this helps....

Fujitsi Amilo m 7400


Yes, you will need the proper drivers in order to configure the wireless. You can find these either at the manufacturer's support site by the laptop model or driverguide.com by the wireless card make and model. Keep in mind that there may be more that one driver that will work, and that your system may recognize and install the wrong driver for the wireless. If it doesn't work properly, then it's the wrong driver. Finding the right wireless driver can be a long and painstaking process, I've spent hours trying to find the right wireless driver before, so, as you try different drivers, save them to the desktop before installing them, when you find the right driver burn it to a disc so you won't have to go through this again. I hope you get lucky and hit the correct driver right off.
