Windows Vista-Windows live messenger and smart bro band

I recently bought this notebook. At home, i use smart bro for my internet connection, and in the office i use a different LAN connection. Each time i use my windows live messenger at home using smart bro connection, my computer malfunctions and it shows a blue screen saying these : 1) KERNEL_INPAGE_ERROR... 2) IRQL_NOT_EQUAL.. that happened lots of times so i had the unit changed .. when i got the 2nd unit, still the same occurred.. what i dont understand is that, in the office and other network provider windows live messenger works perfectly!! i asked smart bro, they said that thery have no problems with Windows Vista.. Now Toshiba wants me to either upgrade my unit.. but for what?? howcome others who use vista and also uses smart bro connection have no problem at all..

    Thank you for this solution. I believe it is true. However I read it too late.. I bought another unit yesterday but another brand.. im using VAIO but with vista again.. so far, it hasnt given me any problems yet... the problem by the way in the PHilippines is that, most new laptop units here are all using vista.Those that have XP are no Core Duo.. So I had to make another gamble using VISTA..

Hi,
your conflict or problem is with vista drivers.
get the latest updates from M$ for your machine.
Why do people always assume, that the latest is the greatest.
Vista is a pile of unfinished junk.
windows 2000-XP are far superior operating systems.
Vista is unfinished, like most microsoft products.
never get fully tested and debugged, they let the consumer find the floors.

Acer notebook with Vista won't connect to home w/l network


Use this tip for a check list : band, encryption, protocol (WPA, WEP?) Do you see your radio signal (SSID)
Do you set an access list on your router? add your Vista PC MAC address to router list or disable access list control.
Be sure to browse internet using a cable connection to router
Try removing access security and check if connection performed
Restore security protection and match router/pc settings,

You said the majic words "beta". These are programs that are not ready for use in the public because of bugs in them Microsoft allows people to download them so they can identify what does and does not work then add the fixes. There is no support for anything beta...best to cut your losses and wait for the real thing to come out.

Error: 81000306 1. Make sure that you are connected to the Internet. Start Microsoft Internet Explorer, and then try to visit the following Web sites:
Messenger service status Microsoft web site If you cannot visit these sites, contact your Internet service provider (ISP) for information about how to set up your Internet connection so that you can visit both secure (https) and non-secure (http) sites. 2. If you are able to visit the Messenger service status page and notice that there is a service issue, please visit the site later to determine when the service is available so that you can sign into Messenger. If the site indicates that the all systems are stable and running, go to the next step.
3. Clear the proxy settings in MSN Messenger. 3.a. Start Messenger.
3.b. On the Tools menu, click Options.
3.c. Click Connection in the left navigation pane.
3.d. Click Advanced Settings in the Connection Settings section.
3.e. Delete the content of the SOCKS field.
3.f. Click OK two times to save the settings.
3.g. After you clear the proxy settings, verify if you are able to sign into Messenger. If you are still not able to sign into Messenger then please go to the next step.
4. If you are using Windows Vista, disable the Auto Tuning Networking feature: 4.a. Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, and then right-click Command Prompt and choose Run as administrator.
4.b. Click Continue when Windows requests permission to continue.
4.c. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled
Note: This command disables the Window Auto Tuning feature. 4.d. After you disable the Auto Tuning Networking feature, verify if you are able to sign into Messenger. 5. If you are still not able to sign into Messenger then please re-enable this feature using the information below and then go to the next step. 5.a. Re-enable the Auto Tuning Networking feature by typing the following command at the command prompt, and then pressing ENTER: netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal
Note: This command enables Window Auto Tuning again so that you can take advantage of the network throughput performance increase it provides.
6. If you are using Windows Vista and you also use a router (eg. Linksys, D-Link, Netgear) on your home network to connect to the internet please visit the router manufacturer’s website to update to the latest firmware for that product.

I cannot install windows live messenger


well...seems that perhaps the download is being compromised by the speed of your net connection. you on wireless? try a direct ethernet connection to get that handled.

also, make sure it's the vista version of live messenger
