Windows vista problem

I have a windows vista computer and whenever i go to chatrooms, usually with my old desktop computer i was able to hear people speaking on their microphone in a public chatrooms. when i got this vista computer it wont let me hear other people because its giving me an error saying "audio compression format is not compatible..." something like that. so now im wondering is it because yahoo is not advanced yet for windows vista computer? or yahoo messenger chatrooms can only work with xp,2000 or what? because my old computer is windows XP and it worked there before. please i need solution on this. thanks

    Hazel - I have the exact same problem. I just got a new Toshiba laptop with Vista and I can use certain programmes eg, i can hear voice in chatrooms on paltalk etc but not on Yahoo. I keep getting the same message about the computer not supporting the voice thing as soon as I go into Yahoo chat. How did you get this fixed? Im not very good with technology so please keep any replies simple for someone like me lol. thanx

Vista is not much different to xp ... it just has a load of extra trimmings that you dont really need.
try checking your sound card drivers and make sure yahoo is set to use the appropriate device.
Vista also is an operating system that takes up a lot more disk space. Bill gates likes to sell stuff that you think is improved but really its just an excuse for them to make more money.

I have a mac book and i have downloaded yahoo messenger 3.0 for mac my problem is whenever i get into chatrooms i cannot see other users on the left side, i dont know why? i have deleted and installed...


Hi, well this is indeed a strange one? I haven't really come across this exact sort of thing before, similar ones yes, but anyway, however I wonder if it has to do with screen resolution? Please try to increase your screen resolution, try to up it, as much as you can. I don't think it is actually anything you are doing wrong, i think it is a setting, to do with screen resolution/size?As a workarround, try installing another Chat Client, say one that does many differing chat formats, they are better anyway and have more features too, there are quite a few, but try this one, ...http://adium.im/ it will do many chats formats Yahoo among them, so download and install that, and see if this makes those errant lists available?
Another thing, do you have a scroll bar at the bottom?, if so can you scroll the window along to the right at all? just a thought...

How can i verify my yahoo messenger account in order to enter the chat room


ou need to undergo a verification process first to get into yahoo chatrooms.

This has been setup by Yahoo to prevent automated bots and spammers to give us all REAL people enjoyment in chating.

When you join a chatroom a chatroom window will open with the following message --

( To help prevent spam and bots from disrupting your Yahoo! chat experience, please click here to verify your account (this link will open a new web browser window).

Underneath this message is the Captcha. (blue link) that you need to click ONCE.

When a new web browser opens, the following message appears -

"To join the chatroom please complete the following verification." and "Please enter the character shown above"

Type in the characters in the box and then click submit.

After a few seconds the chatroom window will now open

When i enter yahoo astro chat i get a message script error due to which i am unable to enter the chatroom


Thefirst thing to check is to make sure you have scripting enabled in InternetExplorer. Internet Explorer is integrated into Yahoo Messenger so things thatgo wrong with IE can affect Yahoo Messenger. Here is the yahoo help page aboutthat: http://help.yahoo.com/l/us/yahoo/messeng... 2)In the Start Menu click on Run. Type, without the quotes, "regsvr32jscript.dll" and then click OK. Next, repeat the process but this time type inthe Run box "regsvr32 vbscript.dll" and click OK. Please note, if you are usingWindows Vista temporarily disable the User Account Control (UAC). You caneasily turn it back on. On the Control Panel (Category View) choose UserAccounts and Family Safety, next choose User Accounts, and then click Turn UserAccount Control on or off. 3)If the above does not fix your problem and you are using Windows XP, you canupdate your Windows Script to version 5.7. In my experience helping others,this is the step that has helped the most people. Exit all browser windows andchat programs including Yahoo Messenger before installing. run registry cleanerreginout cleaner to easily fix it

Dear Friend,
Have you Tried this Link .And Follow Instructions Then you will retrieve your Password.
I strongly Recommend you that Please Avoid Sensitive Information in your Yahoo Profile such as Tel num,Zip code etc. Hacking is very easy in chatrooms, especially in Yahoo! chatrooms and MSN chatrooms. Plus, your Yahoo! account can also be easily hacked from talking to strangers via Yahoo! messenger. Your IP address can also be obtained from these channels.
Hope This Helped you..I like to Know Your Feedback.Thanks for Contacting FixYa...

I cant install yahoo messenger 10 ...plz help


for Windows OS: If your installation stuck on finishing installation, just terminate the process. Use CTRL+ALT+DEL and kill YM10SETUP process. I'm sure it would be around 95% in completing installation. You can start using it by click on yahoo messenger icon on desktop or by clicking on START menu. By doing this, you can use yahoo messenger like usual. If there's problem happens, you must re-install yahoo messenger or otherwise you'll keep faces the problem over again.

Windows live Messenger 2009 on vista disconnected internet


well, i cant really help with this, but i would first try it out with wired network, and if it doesn't work, then u would know that the problem is with Messenger. then i suggest u could look up the problem on windows live support, or just re-install Messenger. (if the problem is with the wireless internet, then maybe ur Internet Card, inside ur PC is broken or needs to be rebooted) HOPE THIS HELPS!

Yahoo messenger keep loging me off


after logging in ym, do you go to chatrooms? there are so-called yahoo booters that boots your ym when you join a certain chatroom.

Make sure messenger is off, then go to regedit then open up HKEY CURRENT USER then open up SOFTWARE then open up MICROSOFT then open up WINDOWS then open up CURRENT VERSION then click on Internet Settings but dont open it just click on it then go half way down the list to find PROXY ENABLE,PROXY SERVER,PROXY OVERRIDE then click on PROXY ENABLE click modify binary and change from 0x00000000 (1) to 0x00000000 (0) then delete PROXY SERVER and PROXY OVERRIDE and there you go sign into messenger this has worked perfect for me hope it does for you.

or

It's either one of the two:

- Yahoo! servers are down for maintenance, the only fix would be to wait.

- Your connection preferences are wrong:
Messenger tab just above where you sign in and then click the Connection Preference option
