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.

The messages i type in yahoo messenger doesn't appear as well as those typed by my friends


This means that your Yahoo Messenger is infected with a virus. This happens to a lot of users. Just uninstall the current version of your yahoo messenger and download and install the new version from http://messenger.yahoo.com.

When typing messeges,it appears on my box messege.but,when sending it to a friend it wont appear on my friends screen box messeging..


Does this happen just with your friend only? If yes, then his or her Yahoo!Messenger is infected with a trojan. This is a common problem with Yahoo Messenger users. Advice your friend to uninstall the current program from his or her computer and download and install the latest version from http://messenger.yahoo.com.

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

My display picture will not change in messenger box


Go to folder
C:\Program Files\Yahoo!\Messenger\Profiles\[your Yahoo ID]\My Icons

It's a list of display images saved by YM. Remember the filename of your desired image.

Open your registry (click Start, Run.., type REGEDIT).

Trace the path
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Yahoo/pager/profiles/[your Yahoo ID]/FriendIcons

The value of Path should reflect the filename of the current display image in your YM. Change it to reflect the filename of your desired image.

Close the registry.

Restart YM.
