Sounds like a port problem on the non functioning laptop. does it connect to yahoo when on a different network? try turning off your firewall or checking the settings on your router. just google your router model and you will find out how to access it. I would also run the network setup wizard and see if that clears it up. It could be cache or anything. run a full test at and see what it says

My yahoo messenger says my account has been locked.does this mean my account has been hacked too?

There are a couple of reasons it may say this.
1. You entered the password incorrectly to many times (usually 3-4 times will cause a lock out that can take up to a day to auto unlock) 2. You have not used your account in such a long time that it was placed in the inactive status, causing a lockout which then will mean you have to re activate the account. (try logging into webmail to do this, it may prompt you with security questions) 3. Your account may be on a server that is being upgraded, repaired, etc... causing your account to be locked or "inaccessible" until the upgrade is done. Try back later. 4. Someone else is trying to get into your account and entering the incorrect password 3-4 times has caused it to auto lock for security reasons.
If you have concerns I suggest you contact yahoo directly, or wait a day and try logging in again. If you are able to get back in, change your password.
Regards, Chris

The company I work for is using WEBSENSE and I cannot access yahoo messenger. I do not want to enter chat rooms, but only keep the yahoo messenger opened while I am working and receive im from my buddy...

i fthe computer do not allow you to access the yahoo messenger try to stay on line on the web version of the yahoo messenger ..This is just a web page and I think they do not thought to restrict it ..
Here is the log in page ..
(it is about the same and even allow to keep archives ...its just a little simplified ..)
By the way ..the reason you can not log from the computer directly probably cause you do not have an administrator account ..and the program is firewall-ed or something like that ..
Good luck !

I cannot sign in to my yahoo messenger now. why?

make sure you have an internet connection. try opening a website.
if you cannot log in to yahoo messenger what error are you getting?
if password error check your password and user name
in yahoo messenger you don't have to type in the in the username and the password try to type it in the notepad to check if you typed the correct password.
copy that password then paste it in the password box.
check for your antivirus and firewall setting maybe it is stopping your yahoo messenger from connecting the internet.
also try uninstalling and reinstalling your yahoo messenger. try downloading the latest version
if still don't get any luck logging in.
try to log in to the web base yahoo messenger

If there is any firewall running locally on your network, turn it off.
Then try again. You will be able to browse. If u are able to access skype, yahoo messenger, then u should also able to access websites too

I downloaded Yahoo Messenger but unlike everyone else in the universe haven't the faintest idea how to start instant messaging. I don't see any IM logo or anything else on any Toolbar or on the Yahoo...

1) You need a yahoo account to be able to sign into Yahoo
2)You invite friends as contacts -so you can IM (Instant Message) when you are on line together
3) The Smiley Messenger logo (with "Yahoo Messenger" underneath) should have been installed on your desktop as part of the installation process - if its not there > Start > All programs > Yahoo > Messenger
If you can find the Messenger file there with a smiley logo on it - right click it and select 'Send to desktop - create shortcut'
4) Read the Messenger Tutorial to get yourself aquainted
