First try to uninstall and again install new Yahoo Messenger. If it still doesnt work, you have to reformat your system. It happened because your system is infected by virus which severely triggered some features of your Yahoo Messenger or maybe your Drivers.
After reformatting your system your YM will surely work.

I have e-mail through Yahoo. I can open my e-mail using the public library computers. I can open my e-mail using my friend's computers. On my computer I can open the www sit, even Yahoo. But not my e-mail.
Yahoo Mail ? "You have been signed out out of chat because you have signed in on another device" ?
Hi, Since Messenger Version 9 was launched, Yahoo has prevented us from having 2 Instant Messaging capable programs open and active at the same time. For example, Yahoo Messenger, Yahoo Webmessenger, Yahoo Mail, your mobile phone, Ipod, or other computers etc. etc. Yahoo classifies all these programs as "Different devices or locations". Navigating from one to the other will close one program and you may get the notification message referred to above.. Note. Hitting the X on the Contacts page in Yahoo Messenger does not sign you out of Yahoo Messenger, it merely closes the contacts page. Like WLM you have to close the program by right-clicking the icon in the system tray and selecting 'Exit' You can have Yahoo Mail and Messenger ( or any other program ) open at the same time as long as your status is "Offline" in Yahoo Mail. Use the drop-box next to your name and "Sign out of chat" Your online contacts will vacate the inbox until you make yourself "Available" again
Hi! Temporarily have mail in-built messenger and don't expect video, voice or attachment services in this mail messenger. and at the same time, delete your previously available YM software and get updated one directly from web and have fine
Install older version of yahoo messenger.. And let me tell your one thing that, when to try to login to your yahoo account on yahoo messenger, your internet connection must be responding. This you can ensure by keeping your server busy(opening websites). The problem you are telling might be caused when you are trying to login to yahoo account through yahoo messenger and yahoo mail. I recommend you that you open yahoo account through yahoo mail(only if you are unable to sign in to yahoo account through yahoo messenger.) yahoo mail now-a-days is providing yahoo chat service when you sign in your yahoo account on yahoo mail. at left side of your mail box you can see yahoo mini messenger.
