The problem is likely not with you at all.

Yahoo & WinLive have been causing grief among a friend and myself as well. Yahoo has been having troubles just to try and get signed in.

Mobile Devices can sometimes cause false status reports unless you specifically choose to sign into a device, or sign back into PC (both on the pc side-yahoo). Don't know if you are using them or not, just be aware.

It is also possible that your friends, and yours, profiles got mixed up on the computer side. Try deleting each other, then re-add. You will likely lose the message history though.

I am sure that the problem lies with Yahoo though, just based on the number of problems I have personally with it.

Hi, sorry about your sister.From your problem, i think you are not using the right dial code for the country you can calling that's why you can not get across to anyone you try to contact.

You can use this link to get all country codes for dialing different countries:

Sorry aboutyour sister again. my regards.

I cannot view my friend, he has a web cam I do not, but I can't figure out how to do it. Do I need to download the new yaho, I am trying to view him through windows live, h has a yahoo addy also

There are many inconsistencies between Yahoo! IM and Windows Live. Basically, you can connect to members of each, but the status may not update correctly and other features like web page sharing may not work. My recommendation is if most of your friends are on Yahoo! IM, then switch to Yahoo! IM. Lastest is version 9. Version 10 is in beta.

Sony Vaio Motion Eye

First find your VAIO Camera capture utility and configure it to see both your webcam and your microphone/ to do this if VAIO Camera Capture Utility is not in your start list of programs, Click on start in the space search "VAIO Camera" without the quotes. it should bring up the VAIO camera capture utility. Click on it/when it opens click on settings/ click on the Cam/mic tab and choose Sony Visual Communications Camera in the drop down under preferred Camera/ Do the same for your Preferred Microphone/ click OK/Now click the little red x in the far upper right of the VAIO Camera Capture utility to close it. Now in your chat software either Windows live chat or Yahoo chat or whichever one you have. I have Windows live chat/ configure your video in there as well to use your motion eye and your microphone. You should now be able to chat live seeing and hearing your guest as long as they have the same chat program.Do a search on google for "Windows Live Messenger" if you wish to use that utility to chat with. If you choose Windows Live Messenger, in the main window click on tools/ click on "Audio and Video Setup".

Cristal eye not supporting yahoo messenger vedio chatting

This usually happens when the cam is still being used by another application. Go to Task Manager and see if windows live messenger is still running. If so close it in Task Manager then try to run the cam again in yahoo messenger.
