Have you verified you have network connectivety? Open your web browser try going to a website once there click on a link. It is important to know if you can actually surf the web if you can not then we may need to take a look at your network connection first.

    Wow, that is a good clue! So no matter what in the evening, you can surf the web... and that is smooth with no consectutive delays. Two things, I am thinking the server that your MSIM is full, try downloading the Yahoo version of chat. Try using it in the evening when MSIM won't work.( You can chat with people on MSIM from Yahoo, I do it all the time.) Just have a friend stay with you and see if it works. If you can successfully use Yahoo chat with someone on MSIM and Yahoo, then the problem may be with the MSIM chat server you are being longged on to. If it does not work, we we need to look locally at you computer and your gateway, or cable modem, or firewall settings.



    I suspect it will work though.

Try Re-Installing Live Messenger. FYI the Latest Windows Live Messenger needs a file update to be downloaded from MS site. Its a KB File. You may need to download that file. Please update further..

Computer crashed and upon start up it states that it is missing a DLL image file and will not bring up anything


Your dell could have been attacked by a virus or malware, and it went on to replace some system files. your options are, to reinstall the operating system, my guess is you are using windows, so reinstall windows, whether xp, vista or 7, login in using service directory repair mode, that is, by pressing F8 after the dell splash screen has displayed upon powering the computer, and selecting that choice. once logged in, perform virus scan if you have a good antivirus. meanwhile copy your important files and documents to a removable drive. if the antivirus manages to clean out the virus. you can reboot in a normal mode.
the second option is to use a live cd if you have ever heard of one, boot your computer using the live cd, some common ones are hiren's boot cd, multi-boot recovery cd and any other that you might across. once logged in, copy your importnt files and documents into a removable drive and format your computer and perfom a clean installation, this time do not forget to purchase an antivirus and install, kaspersky is fairly good, for some free options, avast is a good option. then scan your removable drive and clean it for viruses before recovering your documents

Windows live messenger sign in error code 81000306


That means Windows Live Messenger is unable to contact the authentication server.

Open up Live Messenger and go to Tools and go to Options. Under Connection Settings, choose Advanced Settings. Make sure there are nothing in the proxy fields. Make sure the SOCKS area has nothing in it and click okay until you get back to the Messenger window and try to sign in.

If that doesn't work and you are running Windows Vista, click start, type: cmd, right-click cmd.exe when it appears under Applications, click Run As Administrator, type the following: "netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled", rress enter, restart your computer”

Hope this helps!

No connec tion


Hello there, Windows messenger is the free program that comes with Windows, its not very good so you can download "Windows Live Messenger" which is what most people use. Either search in google.com for "Windows Live Messenger" or copy and paste the following address into your web browser.

http://get.live.com/messenger/overview

From here you can download, install and connect.

Hope this helps.
