We want to install yahoo messenger in laptop

It sounds like there is a firewall on your modem itself blocking downloads via certain ports, login to your modem's settings page and disable the firewall there, see if that makes any difference. If not perhaps it is just a bad connection between your computer and modem that is causing it to drop out, try connecting with Cat 5 or 6 Ethernet cable.

What is your operating system ? And what version of Yahoo Messenger are you downloading ?
On XP, some computers won't install YM 9 or later. It can only install up YM 8 . Try installing YM8.
try download ing from this link.

check out ur audio driver in device manager look for update.
you can update in device manager but sometimes(more often than not) get reply latest driver installed.
well the latest driver isnt always the best.
if this the case download a driver from hp site .if driver still no better or worse;you can roll back driver in device mannager to previous one.
could try update codecs (encode/decode) as different codecs have different compression ratio's.
