Messages won't come up on screen

I don't have a problem installing Yahoo and I don't have a problem with my contact list not coming up.My problem is when someone types me a message the words don't show up on my screen and the same thing happens when I type a message and hit enter...it will not send the message.Please help me cause I have uninstalled and re-installed Yahoo so many times..everyone I've talked to told me that would fix it and it hasn't.Any suggestions or ideas would be so appreciated.

    I can't read messages in the Yahoo messenger...either recieved or sent. I can see as I am typing but when they send, it is blank. I also got an error, not enough storage space to complete this action. That is crazy because Yahoo was working fine and then all of the sudden....this happened.

Right clicking won't work. To delete contact on your Yahoo! Messenger, hover your mouse over the contact you want to delete, then click the drop-down menu and then click "delete".

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...

Yahoo massager does't install


It appears that another application running on your computer is disrupting the Yahoo! Messenger installation. To fix this problem, turn off all other applications and then try installing Yahoo! Messenger. I can give you an insurance the you won't lose your Messenger List, as that is stored on our servers.

When i am installing yahoo messenger during installation an error comes d3d9.dll not found reinstall it........now what can i do plz help me.........


ANY Yahoo! Messenger program will not install properly if a former program, or an incomplete install, has not been completely deleted from the computer first. (Don't worry - your Contacts List will be saved into the fresh installation of an updated Messenger!)
Delete all Yahoo Messenger references from the registry.
  • Use the Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs method,
  • Then double-check by going to Start > Search > files and folders > Yahoo! Messenger (notice the exclamation mark in the title).
  • Write down and delete all references manually if necessary. The uninstaller works well for Vista and Win 7, but not for XP - it leaves behind MANY junk files when uninstalling.
  • If you are using Internet Explorer 8 or 9 as your browser, Yahoo Messenger 10 will not work properly without Flash and Java programs installed, and possibly the .NET framework update. (Messenger 11 is still in beta format, so be wary of using it yet.). you'll have to download Flash and Java programs as well.
Last, you could used this link to fix a dll error:
http://fix-all-dll-errors.com/d3d9.dll/
Just click on the link, then click the button "Fix dll errors now." This should fix the issue. Hope this helps. Thank you for using FixYa!

Iam new to internet chating .i have opened an yahoo account but i dont know how to add friends online please help me to do so.


If you are using Yahoo Messenger simply open your Yahoo Messenger program, log in using your log in information. Then at the top of the screen it says "Contacts" click this option then choose add contact. Now you can enter people with either their screen name, email address, or phone number if they have it posted. The request will be sent and must be accepted by the other person to become friends.

If you are just trying to add contacts in your yahoo mail, just log in> go to mail> then contacts> then add contacts and enter their email address.

Hopefully this helped!

Unable to chat on Yahoo messenger.. I hear no sound when a person calls me.. Nor can i call them.. This problem happened after i re-installed windows XP. Sound from my speakers is okay.


If you have, for instance, Yahoo Messenger 10 India - it won't work because this version doesn't have any voice facility. Try to update your Yahoo Messenger version to the latest (Yahoo Messenger 10 US). If this won't work, contact Y! for help.

Yahoo messenger wouldn't appear on screen. It comes up in task bar as a blake. Also icon wouldn't let it come up.


1. Reboot your computer.
2. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del on your keyboard. This will bring up the Windows Security window. Click the "Task Manager" button and then click the "Task Manager" tab.
3. You will see a list of files/applications. These are the applications running in the background on your system, whether they show on your taskbar or not. Any one of these applications could be causing a conflict with the Yahoo! Messenger installation.
4. Click the top item on the list to highlight it. Then hold the "Shift" key down and click the last item on the list. This should highlight the whole list.
5. Click the "End Task" button. This will temporarily close all background applications on your system.
6. Click the "X" in the upper right corner to close the Task Manager window.
7. Install Yahoo! Messenger. You should not experience the same issue that you had before.
8. After Yahoo! Messenger is installed,run registry cleaner reginout also reboot your system. All other background applications will return to their original configurations.

As soon as it comes up, a message comes on saying Yahoo messenger is not working propery, windows will close the program


Hi there,

When problem like this occurs, this means that one or more system files on your currently installed Yahoo! Messenger is corrupted. Just uninstall your yahoo messenger and download and install the latest version at http://messenger.yahoo.com and this should fix your problem. Uninstalling will not delete your contact list so you dont have to worry.

Please let me know if this helps. Thank you for using FixYa.
