No sound in chat rooms with windows7 64bit


With the Yahoo! Messenger application, you can chat with friends and family over the Internet, and you can also use the contacts you have from your Yahoo! email account. In addition, the application allows you to enter chat rooms, play games, share pictures and transfer files. Using the preferences on your Yahoo! Messenger, you can enable the application to play a sound when you receive a new message, and you can also have your own customized sounds played.

1.Open the Yahoo! Messenger application on your computer. Click on the "Preferences" option from top toolbar menu.
2.Click on the "Alerts and Sounds" option from the Preferences window on the left side of the application.
3.Click on the box next to the "Enable alert sounds" fields and then click on the "I receive a message in Yahoo! Mail" option below the "Alert me when" heading.
4.Click on the box next to the "Playing a sound" field below the "Alert me by" heading and then click on the "Browse" button.
5.Select a sound file from your computer that you want to be used with Yahoo! Messenger and then click on the "OK" button.
6.Click on the "OK" button again and the sound you choose will be enabled in the Yahoo! Messenger application.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks.

hi, Sounds like a Scripting error. I'm giving you a Help Link to follow:

Also make sure you have the latest Flash player and Java installed.

After Updating, check that you do not have Old Versions of Flash Player, Shock Wave player and Java ...this causes problems.
click --- Start/Control Panel/ Programs
?Delete the Old Versions First................

Good Luck to You

Each time i got yahoo mail, my yahoo messenger pops up. i don't need it


  1. Open Yahoo! Messenger
  2. Click Messenger --> Preferences or CTRL+Shift+P
  3. Under category click Alerts and Sounds
  4. In the "Alert me when" box click "I receive email in Yahoo! Mail"
  5. Uncheck the boxes next to "Displaying a dialog box", "Showing an icon in the system tray" and "Showing a message in the bottom right corner of my screen". If you prefer not hear the pow alert as well uncheck "Playing a sound..."
  6. Click OK and you're done.
So as not to leave you in the dark, let's also define these three options:
"Displaying a dialog box" is the Windows dialog box that pops up notifying you of new mail. "Showing an icon in the system tray" is the envelope that appears when new mail arrives. "Showing a message in the bottom right corner of my screen" is the box that comes up giving you the subject of the message or how many emails.
Additionally, you can customize all your alerts in a very similar manner: Select the alert you want to change then check or uncheck the boxes as desired. You can even change what sounds you hear.
Hope that helps take some of the aggregation out of your computing experience!\

Start-> Run-> CMD->Msconfig-> Start up tab-> Uncheck Yahoo Messenger-> Apply-> Close-> Restart the computer.
