    Check if your audio drivers are working properly.
    Do you hear music out of your normal speakers? Are you able to record audio via your mic?
    If yes then you need to reinstall yahoo messenger. Try fresh yahoo messenger available on the net.

    This errors seems to be with people using RealTek High Definition Sound 6 to 8 channel I have the same Problem I have checked every thing there is and Have not found a fix as of Yet! every thing to even trying different updated drivers. I don't think Yahoo Voice servers reconsie it but I am trying it on another Machine here at the same time with the same type of sound on Both a MSI board and a Gigabyte board Pro series.

    That could be a "SoundMax" sound "card"...
    Give Everest a try, maybe it can say for sure...

    Did you have a look at the HP drivers?
    What model is your comp?
    "HP Pavillion Intel", yes but there should be a number, I think..

    Seems most soundmax drivers go through the PC manufacturers site, so well need specifics to find the right ones..

    All this is in hope that your problem is related to the drivers..
    Good to update them anyway..
