Do me a favor and try this. Go to which I would bookmark if I were you or go straight here and try downloading the most recent release in each series starting with the last release of Y! 8. Worse case scenario you end up with Y!5 or 6 but you'll be able to your brother.

Sir my yahoo messeng cant sign in plz slove this problem

You just can't sign in easily and or it will take you some time before a successfully log in to yahoo messenger if the version of Internet Explorer that comes with your windows operating system did not meet that recommended compatibility with the version of your yahoo messenger.

The best suggestion to solve this problem... is to upgrade the version of your Internet Explorer to version 8 (it's the latest). It doesn't matter if your using other web browser like Mozilla, just upgrade Internet Explorer.

Then unistall your yahoo messenger and install its latest version too, Yahoo Messenger 10.

Yahoo messenger

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.
