20 Most Recent HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook - Page 8 Questions & Answers


Let me explain on how to connect the TV to HP notebook.

There are two ways to connect the TV to the notebook. One is with the S-Video cable and another one is HDMI cable. (If you computer had HDMI port)

Connecting notebook and TV with S-video cable:

You need to get the Svideo cable and connect it to the notebook Svideo port to TV Svideo port and press Fn+ F4 to get the notebook display on the TV.

For the first time pressing the Fn+F4 keys, you will get the display on the TV and there will be no display on the Notebook.

If you press the Fn+F4 for second time, you will get display back to the notebook and Tv screen becomes blank.

By pressing the same keys again will show the display on both the screen.

Samething connecting with the HDMI cable, if your computer had HDMI port.

If you won't get the display on the external screen even after following the correct process, then once you need to reinstall the display driver.

If the issue persists, then you have to check with another cable.

Note: No need to install any software on the notebook to connect the TV to the notebook.

More information please.

Overheating does not normally cause red dots on the screen. The pixels are most likely failing. Try to update the video card drivers and see if it helps. if not , then take the laptop to a authorised service vendor, the display may need replacing.

Activating the webcam
The drivers for the webcam are pre-installed and an HP Webcam 1000 icon displays on the desktop. Double-click on the icon to activate the webcam. The blue light illuminated next to the webcam lens, just above the LCD screen, indicates the webcam is on.

If double-clicking on the icon does not activate the webcam, do the following activities:

Click Start, then right-click on My Computer, and then select Properties.

On the My Computer properties window, click on the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
Click on the plus ( +) sign next to Imaging Devices and locate the webcam item in the device list.
If the webcam is not listed, do the following activities to install the driver using the webcam driver recovery.
Click Start, click All Programs, click PC Help & Tools, and then click HP Application Recovery.
Select Driver installation and click Next.
Select the HP Webcam 1000 driver from the list, and click Install.
If the webcam is listed under Imaging Devices but there is a red X on the icon, the webcam is disabled. See figure below.
Figure 1: Disabled Webcam Icon

To enable the webcam, right-click the HP WebCam 1000 icon and click Enable. The webcam icon should display on the Desktop.
Alternate locations for the webcam icon
If the webcam is installed but the icon is not displayed on the desktop, look for the webcam icon in one of these alternate locations.
Click Start, and click My Computer. The webcam icon should be displayed with the other devices. See figure below.
Click Start, and click Control Panel , and then click Scanners and Cameras. The webcam icon should be displayed with the other devices.
The HP Webcam 1000 does not install a listing under any of the All Programs menu.
Using the Webcam Diagnostic Test
To ensure the webcam is operating, do the following activities:
Right-click on the WebCam icon, and then select Properties.
Click on Test Camera under Diagnostics on the General tab.
The test should only take a few moments, but allow the test to complete operations by itself.
The result of the test, either “passed” or “failed”, will be displayed.

Hello Al,

I hate to inform you but the graphics chip in these laptops are known for doing this. HP is aware of that. Every time some one brings me a Hp Dv6000 laptop about 75% of the problem is the system board or overheating issues.

First try cleaning the laptop screen with laptop screen cleaner

Walmart LCD Display Screen Cleaner for TVs Computers and Cameras

if its still blurry connect a external monitor to your laptop to see if the display is blurry on the external monitor (to get to toggle the video from your laptop you will have to press the Fn key + F4)

If its still blurry then its the graphics card or chip needs to be replaced. They are all integrated with the system board / mother board.

If its clear and images are good then the laptop screen will need to be replaced. hope that helps.

OK, if you had the problem I had, I have a solution

I had a problem where i could turn it on, i could hear the fan and disk spinning but the screen would stay black and blank. The keyboard lights and wireless connection light turned on, but they wouldnt respond to being switched or touched.

I read this solution, I thought it was bogus, but it was worth a try rather than sending it back for its warranty. I promise you this worked for me.

1. make sure the power is off
2. make sure the lap top is not plugged in (charging cord is not plugged in)
3. remove the battery from the bottom
4. hold the power button for 30 to 60 seconds
5. plug in the power cord
6. turn it on as usual

good luck

I would hook up an external display. If you get a display externally its your screen. If nothing or squiggly lines it probably your GPU. Cost of repair with return shipping with us would be around a 100.

Yes as long as it is the correct ram: pc2, pc3 etc.. Check you specs online.

Go to hp.com. Click on support and drivers tab. Select "See Support & Troubleshooting Information." Enter your laptop model number. dv6-1245dx. Click on "GO". See: "What Type Of Support Do You Need?" Choose MANUALS. Scroll down the page and select "HP PAVILION DV6 ENTERTAINMENT PC - MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE GUIDE". Download that PDF format. It is relatively easy to get to the ribbon cable that connects the touchpad to the motherboard. It is connected via a ZIF connector. I had a dv1331se and the touchpad stopped working. I just reseated the cable in the connector and all was well. Hope your solution is as easy as mine was. You'll have to remove the trimplate just in front of the keyboard. Be careful with the connectors there. The manual is well laid out and the diagrams easy to follow. Good luck. HP Pavilion dv6 Entertainment PC - Maintenance and Service Guide

This site is not for free giveaways for product keys, serial registration codes, etc

If you bought the product you can contact the company and they might have a record of it, or if you have the CD you can put it in, etc

If you don't own the item you can, at your own risk, find alternative means to obtain it online (eg torrents, cracking, etc.) though most of these would be illegal, so at your own risk. In either case, make sure that wherever you download it/when you do, to store a backup of it just in-case something does happen to it again

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Apr 18, 2014

This forum isn't really for this stuff. You can look online for such things/torrent sites where if they have a crack they will tell walk you through it, however, do so at your own safety because there torrents could contain virus', malware adware or even worse things.
Happy Hunting! (PS: If someone had a serial to give you, why would you need to crack it?)

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Apr 18, 2014

Not enough RAM in your pc would cause that.

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Apr 15, 2014

The most probable culprit is the power supply. Unless you are very familiar with laptops, you should take it to Geek Squad

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Apr 13, 2014

You are either loading too many unused files, such as fonts, or your anti virus program is doing a full scan before allowing access to the rest of the boot files.
