    What problem are you having?. Is it not being picked up or just not working?

    Without a specific problem we cant fix it ;)

    i'm 100% certain that the device is working but the problem is that it's having some compatibility issues with windows vista. device works when i tested using given software but it's not functioning along with the messenger. i don't get any notification when i receive an instant message. device is supposed to blink & animate whenever i receive a message from msn.

    Well it does work with Vista so that's not a problem.

    Make sure you have Windows Live messenger 7 or above.

    Then if that's no good try reinstalling Windows live messenger on your machine.

    If that doesn't work i think a refund from the seller is in order as your machine if its got windows live 7 or above is fine and to the working spec.
