When you say 2 was taken on a bed, are you holding the camera? I don't think that Elph/Ixus has any built-in stabilisation, so photos in low light without a tripod or the camera being on a hard surface and not knocked when snapping would be difficult to salvage afterwards.

"White light above" = ceiling light? Softer light works better - eg, a desk lamp with some cloth, a piece of paper or frosted plastic over it.

It does look like that model allows you to set the white balance and ISO manually, which added to having the camera steady in the first place should make a decent difference even if there's no manual control over the exposure.
