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.

Go to Start and Run in the window type msconfig.exe and press enter.
a window will pop up which has many areas to configure on your pc software.
look for start-up and click the tab.
Check the software listed for any programs that also may use the audio output
if you find a program and want to stop it from automatically starting during your computers boot up.
remove the check mark from the box.
close the window and reboot your computer.
Try using your chatroom again and see if it cures your problem.
If not let me know.

This usually happen with an old printer and new computer with new OS.
You can try downloading your new driver for Vista at Lexmark website here:

http://www.lexmark.com/lexmark/sequentialem/home/0,6959,204816596_652569478_0_en,00.html

If doesn't work, ask to customer service for assistance

But at this point:

1) is better to get a new printer compatible with Vista

or

2) Downgrade your OS to one compatible with your printer.
