I wish to download yahoo messenger to my pc


You are not limited to only using yahoo messenger to connect with others.

I recommend downloading the pidgin app from www.pidgin.im

It supports Yahoo, AOL, and many other services all at once. Does not install bloatware/toolbars and runs without ads. Give it a try

Cant make a call to other pc


To place a free PC-to-PC call to another Yahoo! Messenger customer, you have a choice of three methods:

Method 1: If you wish to call someone on your Messenger List:

  1. Roll your mouse over the contact's name.
  2. Click the Phone icon that appears to the right of their name, then you'll hear a phone ringing.
  3. When you're done talking, click Hang Up for Yahoo! Messenger 8 and End Call for Yahoo! Messenger 9.

Method 2: Using the "Actions" menu to use "Call Computer":

  1. Click the Actions menu and select Call Computer.
  2. The "Call Computer" dialog box will appear, choose the appropriate tab:
    • For contacts on your Messenger List, click the My Contacts tab and then select the contact's name.
    • For someone not on your Messenger List, click the Other Contact tab and then enter the contact'sYahoo! ID.
  3. Click OK, then you'll hear a phone ringing.
  4. When you're done talking, click Hang Up for Yahoo! Messenger 8 and End Call for Yahoo! Messenger 9.

Method 3: During an instant message conversation:

  1. Start an instant message conversation with someone.
  2. Click the Call button in the toolbar of your IM window, then you'll hear a phone ringing.
  3. When you're done talking, click Hang Up for Yahoo! Messenger 8 and End Call for Yahoo! Messenger 9.

Important: No 911 or other emergency calling services are available on Yahoo! Messenger at this time.

Please inform anyone using your Yahoo! Messenger that 911 or other emergency calling services are not available, and that they must call 911 or other relevant emergency calling services through their traditional telephone or mobile carrier.

Had messenger and was taken off in cleaning my lap top cant seem to re instal


1) Check your C drive to make sure no remnants exist
Start > Computer >> Local Disk (C) >> Program Files >> Messenger - The Messenger folder (if its there) should be empty
2) Open the uninstall page in Programs from your Control Panel - Click the link "View installed updates" and delete updates that refer to Yahoo Messenger
3) Update IE to the latest version - You may have another browser set as default but IE is still working in the background. If you do have another browser set as default make sure IE is not set to work offline in 'Tools'
4) Clear out your browsers
Download 'ccleaner' and use it daily. Run it through a couple of times,using the factory settings and the 'Run Cleaner' control until 0 bytes are seen to be cleaned following a scan
Run the 'Registry' from the left hand toolbar but 'Save' any changes after opting to 'repair' errors.Never make changes to your Registry without saving the information.

DELL 630m audio problem


It may be that your PC is now reading the mike as a crystal mike and the signal is too strong. Try to attenute the signal by pluging the mike into a mixer box to reduce the signal strength.

Cant fugure out how to use in yahoo messenger


Look at section B. Yahoo below and you should be able to get it working.

Normal 0 Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud
