I need yahoo messenger vioce and video call setup on my dell 3521

If you own a web camera or if your Dell computer comes with a built-in web camera, you can complete a video conference on your computer.
There are a variety of free chat programs that provide free video messaging such as Skype, Yahoo Messenger or Google Chat.
With these programs, all you will need to do a video conference is add the person you wish to conference with to your buddy list.

Download and install a messaging software program such as Skype, Yahoo or Google Chat if you do not already have one installed on your Dell computer.
No matter which messaging program you use, the video call or conferencing feature works the same.
Launch the messaging software on your Dell computer.
Click on your buddy list or contact list.

Click on the contact with whom you'd like to video conference.
If he isn't one of your contacts, you will need to add him to your messenger contact list by clicking on "New" and then "New Contact."

Click on the contact name and select "Video Call."
You will now have a video conference call on your Dell computer.

adn if it doesnt sign in when you do download it follow these steps because it worked with me
Click the "Messenger" menu and select "Connection Preferences."
Select "Firewall with no proxies."
Click "Apply." You should see a message asking you to sign in again.

Enter your Yahoo! ID and password, then click "Sign In."
- Go to messenger right click and select Property
- Under Compatibility Tab
- In Privilege Level check Run This Program as Administrator and in compatibility section choose XP SP2
- Thats it now it should run Fine!

try using pidgin. its an open source messenger that you can use to run yahoo, aim,msn, icq, and more. you can have one consolidated list of contacts. comes standard with most linux distributions, and you can download it for windows.
