To turn it on, you need software like Skype or any other chatting social software like Viber to really take advantage of it. Second you need an account for social media program and a very good strong high speed internet connection, so the webcam you show yourself to a friend or family on the other side doesn't look like a pixel mess and vice versa.

Make sure google is up to date. They have not too long ago updated the good chrome software.

Do a virus/malware scan to see if that causing it to crash. I generally use malwarebytes, its free to use to scan and remove. You can pay for 1 year for it, up to you to decide.

Make sure you have adequate ram to run chrome, its not a good idea to keep too many tabs, if your system cannot handle the load. Google chrome loves to eat chunky memory.

hp 3d drive guard, its a function of the laptop where if the laptop happens to be dropped, the hard drive will immediately go into park mode (Like how the car with built in sensors to auto brake to detect ahead of time accidents).

The driver can be downloaded from HP website or the easier thing is to get it from Windows update itself.

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Feb 18, 2018


Could be drive itself or your drive is not properly configured (formatted for the OS and/or added to a raid config)

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Feb 18, 2018


Take out Your hard drive and put it back in. Try starting it again. If that isn't it then replace the hard drive.

NO OS stated, XP you know its dead right if XP, why not tell ?
help near impossible lacking that key fact
what cam , the one built in?
the USB ports must work on HP or the cam will fail.
no many HP laptops, yeah, 2 drivers just work the USB port and cam both.
What OS?
the drivers are at HP.
run the HP assistant yet.http://h18021.www1.hp.com/helpandsupport/hp-self-support.html


load the drivers yet, from HP and nobody else
oops its retired now, legacy.
no support page, try the assistant and pray.

finding drivers for old PC is getting hard with this silly 10 year rule.
there is a hard way to get them.
lots of steps, ask.

I understood that the laptop you are using the hp pavilion dv6000z has already a pretty good burner..
  • 8x DVD-/+R
  • 8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW
  • 4x DVD-/+R DL
  • 5x DVD-RAM
  • 24x CD-R
  • 24x CD-RW
so ...all you have to do is to learn how to use it ...and for this I recomand Nero softwaer ...even elder versions of this software works great ..and you can make a data dvd with files like dvdrip avi ...that most dvd and all copmuter will playback it..also ...you can burn dvd or Vcd that will be seen in all ...in the matter of the music ...all pm3 players can read data cd ....meaning just mp3 burned into a disk ...and for cd players that reads only old track format you can make them in windows media player ...so read about and use your burner...

what os is this, xp?
what were the instructions.?
at what point in the instructions did it fail.?
none of that can we guess...
did you ask them for help at the point of , what instruction failed?

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Dec 11, 2017


learn to use device manger
Control panel, + device manager,see any read/yell or unknown
marks there, yes, then those are bad drivers. DO TELL.

the first question is always, did HP support that camera on win7.
so lets all go to HP now and see that, fixya is not HP.s
here goes. but G61 is not the full model number on the service tag so how can any one help? windows 7 32bit or 64bit?
you posted to dv6000z why?
G61-100 (or dash 200,300,400,500 or 600) must I guess
ok ill toss my magic dice land on 600
and land at here

https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-G61-600-Notebook-PC-series/4125460


easy no? just type in the model fulling and bam HP has your page of support.
first make sure all usb ports work on the PC, using test mouse
or test keyboard , because that is how the CAM works.
next load the camera software there
I load all there, but BIOS.
or
power on the PC and hammer F11 to get the HP Recovery
tool.
if the PC came with VISTA, then you wont like that at all
ive no idea what PC you really have nor what was shipped day one, so... advice is this.
1: what is the full model number and p/n on the service tag.
2: did you buy it new, if yes, was it w7 then,? or not.
lacking those 2 key facts, makes accurate help, impossible
even a danger to your data.


the camera will need 2 driver working and 1 app.
usb drivers
camera drives
and the HP camara App.
all that is before you at REAL HP

HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
well what can that be , many things
pendrive (a usb port memory stick, and not real DRIVE?)

test it on other pc yet. why not? its failing test it.
many USB mem stick fail due to corrupted files on it.
(removing it incorrectly cause that)

what OS? , you posted with NO OS Stated, at all. XP?
all ports fail on this Laptop?
do other USB sticks fail....>? or USB keyboards, or mice?

the HP OS restore features started about year 2006
called the F11 recovery mode. (that?)
you said.
"but window formatting does not make it work,"
what does that mean, by what means? who done?
using what media or F11 magic key.?

I say the PC is XP? and we all know XP has Horrible
USB support, and NOW worse MS shut down XP servers
for the USB devices, (and more) so will hang when
doing PnP "plug and Pray" driver from there.
XP is DEAD, you do know that right? XP and VISTA are
now DEAD.

recap:
1: the Stick fails on all USB ports.
2: the stick fails in othe PCs
3: running XP and expecting things to work. HAHAHAHAAHAHAAHAHAH (the endless dream?)

my XP works on one PC, but I had to make sure I had all drivers perfect , from each chip maker,
MS and HP dont have them so takes hard work

4: is the Device manager in control panel clear of al errors"

this PC is 10 years old
HP retired it, official
XP is retired at HP and MS.
that PC came new with F11 magic recover key.

the HP manual (covers XP and VISTA )
is still there, will be deleted soon... hint hint..

notebooks, battery out first, just take it out the leds mean zero.
there is no LED that can tell you a battery is ok,

did you?
if that fails.
next is what, BIOS
get the BIOS screens up. (my guess its DEAD) not even text or HP logo.
if not the pull hdd,dvd and all ram but 1 stick.
and all usb jacks empty , unload it.
fails now. then the Power pack is bad
you do know packs can be, good, bad or weak right
19vdc is good, 10 not.
see?

the GOAL on ALL PC's get BIOS UP.
take no hdd , no dvd to do that. ever
once it works we can move to booting any OS>
we can boot to 5 things on my laptop, even SD,mem.
try to think this way
if the Power pack is 65w+ and 19v
then remove all possible shorted devices from the PC.
strip it down. if it runs now, (means BIOS wakes up an screen)
test 2 on all LT
is the rear VGA jack will run a external screen if the internal is suspected.

black screens only can be CCFL dead.
if it has that.
i cant hear you hdd spin/
nor see the eject work work on the dvd
if the PC self shuts off, that means the power supply has issues
the Power pack bad , the MOBO regulators are in overload
and shut it down (called shorts on devices)
this is normal action on any regulator..... normal for shorts./

I insert the Operating System CD
im sorry, i cant see its label , lots of CD sold are wrong..
the manual is online at HP. read page 2.
http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00859654

the HP disk is marked HP, Restore Plus!CD
but fails to tell you in that book how to use it
that means hp has other books, on this.

we do this only if F11 fails. below
hp deleted the XP file but is same as w7
disc inserted this here
step 7 , pick cd.
id bet xp has less choices
but all have factory reset.

XP way? is here. deep searches at HP finds it.
step 7 here too.
https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bph07145


Step 1, not using CDs at all...
read how to restore the original OS
F10 and F11 keys are the 2 keys used, last 20 years
F11 is the modern key
power off, power on, hit F11 like tap tap tap
see HP OS restore pages pop up. (magic)
if the HDD was replaced this fails. in all cases
if the HDD was slammed with a MS CD, then the original
HP setups are now all gone. (whisper thanks Gill Bates)
in that case use the HP media kit.

https://h30434.www3.hp.com/


what is slammed?
http://pcdied.com/XP-sux-sg.html#slammed

where is my kit, well at HP, not here we are NOT HP

is this a question or are you answering others, on other forums.
i cant tell which?
the first word KEEP, (you meant keeps?)
in any case, that is a dead PC.
int his case old dv6000z , laptop
the BIOS seems ok, and screen is ok ,leaving what in the boot up
sequince of logic, the HDD.
the hard disk then boots, but don't
the 2 top cause (there are more) are hdd bad, or OS is corrupted.
putting VISTA CD (how's CD, MS or HP?) or???? be clear
but this step is last not now.
the next step on all HP PC is to press F11, to fix the startup.
(or f10 used on older XP PCs)
This is the magic HP restore key.
you press it and do a startup repair first
if that key is dead, that means the restore partitions are dead
or the HDD is dead.

the next step is run BIOS and see the HDD test. there.
see that? run it, if it fails the HDD is DEAD. end story
if that passes, hope can happen
use the HP install CDs now.
if you use non HP install media, the story goes why longer
(all missing drivers, all missing HP apps, and more)
that is the full story ,lean.


seems you are on the wrong forum to me, or thought,
answering a question is to start a new post. fail. best i can tell

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Jul 07, 2017


ok ,its old laptop, DV6 is now retired at HP. officially.
f11 is the HP restore partition
if someone used non HP DISKS to upgrade this kills dead this feature
you never said, what OS is there now?
nor what it was new. (some version had 3 OS choices new)
only asking HP what yours had new, can answer this .
HP will look up the model and serial and tell you.
reading reviews is see it was XP or Vista then,
is it that now? or what? (control panel hit system read the top words)_
