Question about HP Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Over the last few days I have a big problem connecting to Yahoo. The message is: Internet explorer cannot locate Yahoo. I have the same problem on 2 computers, and one of them is a pretty new laptop. I have just downloaded IE8, but still have the problem. I have also disabled Kaspersky and run IE without add on's, but still the same problem. I have also downloaded the latest firmware for my router, and that all seems to working well. Can you please advise if you have any server problems? Many thanks in advance.

This is a known issue with IE8 happens a lot. I use another browser a lot of folks do. Try this and see if this resolves the issue for you. Go and download FireFox browser Click Here

Now go and see if you can log into Yahoo, if you cannot log in from there most likely they are down. I'm assuming that you can go to other sites other than Yahoo on IE8 then that kind of tells you where the problem lies not with your Internet Provider.

I just went there and I was able to get there. Thanks for using FixYa! I have not used IE in years cannot stand it to many issues and problems occur on a very regular basis to each their own though. It does seem when you first download the upgrade it will work for a bit it just seems to go haywire after that. John

>my yahoo messenger crashes few seconds after i log in..tried to uninstall then reinstall for like 10 times now..help please:(


Good Day Ischan!

Please check if the problem is not internet connection issues. You may need to call your internet provider if that is the case.

Or, I would suggest upgrading the version of your Internet Explorer. Yahoo products like Yahoo Messenger rely its stable connection through Internet Explorer of Windows.

It doesn't matter if you are using Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome. Just upgrade the version of Internet Explorer and that will fix it.

To download Internet Explorer, please go to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/downloads/ie

Good Luck!

The easiest way to solve Yahoo Messenger trouble connecting issues for non...


"The easiest way to solve Yahoo Messenger trouble connecting issues for non computer experts"

There are a lot of issues coming out nowadays from computer users around the globe. Trouble accessing yahoo products like Yahoo Messenger is one of their primary concern. Others opinion stated that it was the new system implemented by yahoo developer to prevent abuse and against its terms. Spamming is widely spreading. Is this the reason why its hard to log in?

I, myself have experienced this. Unable to log in for more than a month.

Recently, I found out that Yahoo Messenger rely its connection through Windows Internet Explorer. Which means that if its hard for you to log in to yahoo messenger, better to do is upgrade your Internet Explorer.

What about computers using different browser? it doesn't matter. If you want to improve the connection of your Yahoo Messenger, Install the latest version of Internet Explorer that is compatible with your present operating system (WinXP, WinXP-32, WindowsVista, WindowsVista-64). Just install it and don't default it as your browser (if the default is different browser)

After upgrading, it is important to uninstall your Yahoo Messenger and install it again. Or if possible upgrade to a newer version too. After successful installation, restart your computer. You will see the big difference. Log in in just a second. Forget those frequent trials logging in, asking experts what to do and asking friends to help you fix it. Few days gone by and no one can help you.

Try this tip. It will surely helps.

My text and my friends texts don't appear on the screen but appear in the editing window but after pressing enter it disappear. i tried to uninstall all the other messangers and players from my pc...


Good Day Dr_Mosaeed!

I know how hard it feels when you want to communicate with others using Yahoo! Messenger and you can not because the message you type will not appear on chat window. And even the message that your friend send to you will not appear.

Dr, this problem is usually caused by an Internet Explorer glitch that block the execution of the scripts in Yahoo Messenger.

You can fix the error by enabling the scripts in Internet Explorer.

Here is what you must do to repair the problem and to assure that it will not appear again:

First, download the latest Internet Explorer version 8 and install in your computer.
To download, go to http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/products/ie/home - choose the operating system you are using before hitting the Download button. Once downloaded, run the application to install Internet Explorer version 8. Once completely installed, run the Internet Explorer.

Secondly, enable the scripts in the Internet Explorer.
While Internet Explorer is running, press the Tools menu and navigate to select Internet Options.
When an Internet Options window appears, select on Security tab. Click on the Internet Globe icon and press Custom Level... button.
When Security Settings - Internet Zone window appears, scroll down and navigate to ActiveX controls and plug-ins and Scripting.
Make sure
the following is enable:
Under ActiveX controls and plug-ins
* Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting - enable
Under Scripting
* Active scripting
- enable
* Scripting of Java applets - enable
Once it is enable, press the OK button. Press Apply button and hit OK. Close the Internet Explorer.

Lastly, if your Yahoo Messenger is running, you must restart it. Please, you do not need to reboot your computer.
Then, try opening a chat window and type a few words before hitting Enter. See if your message finally appear.



Hope this fix will solve your problem. If not, just leave a message here and will try a thorough analysis with your chat message problem.

If this will fix your problem, please do not forget to rate my answer. A simple press on the YES button will show your appreciation.

Thank you for asking Fixya.

Just set up an account last week and now I cant sign on


What you are experiencing is trouble connecting issues with Yahoo Messenger. It is easy to set up an account with yahoo messenger and it will let you sign in for a few days but if the Windows Internet Explorer installed in your computer is outdated then after a few days it will be impossible for you to sign in at Yahoo messenger.

The connection of Yahoo Messenger rely on the Internet Explorer of Windows. The best solution for your problem is to upgrade Internet Explorer with a newer version. The best to suggest is Internet Explorer version 8. It doesn't matter if you are using a different web browser. Just install Internet Explorer 8 and do not default it as your browser if you are using other web browser as your default.

After installing IE 8, the next thing to do is uninstall and reinstall your Yahoo Messenger. It will be better if you install YM version 10. After you have completely install it, restart your computer and sign-in in just a second. It will surely works.

HP no internet.


the A6120N is the big brother to my little 3120N which I love dearly and that means you have Vista installed on the computer. If you are connected to the internet, it also means you have the little blue ballons down on system tray sitting over your network connection icon. Am I correct so far???
