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


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.
power on the PC and hammer F11 to get the HP Recovery
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

just use Google Chrome or Firefox. They are far better than IE anyway.

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.

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..


here is DM running and me clicking power tabs
on usb hubs

try to download windows vista themes please

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Sep 01, 2017 | 181 views

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.

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.

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.

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.


what is slammed?

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


HP Pavilion... | Answered on Jul 14, 2017 | 28 views

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 | 672 views

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)_


HP Pavilion... | Answered on Jul 05, 2017 | 27 views

windows, 7, 2010 PC it is. (first)
no, songs names, length , type, ex cetera have nothing to do with this.
the answer is many , ill try to show you why.
seen every way, I have, for sure.
(the cause is a slow pc, but has more base reasons, bad)

1: speakers where, inside or outside this Notebook, ?
1a: guess inside, so do earbuds work plugged in to the jack? 3.5mm hear phone jack? yes. no
If yes, speakers actual may be bad.
if not , the the sound chip is faulting, easy no? use the jack there and test it.
what cause the chip to fail (even new chips, most never do fail)
but are caused
Top causes :
1: VIRUS INFECTED. Running AV software , is W7 have all updates?
2:malfware infected. run malwarebytes, free.
3: to many things in the startup box in windows 7.
click start, then run box type MSCONFIG , click it there.
see that startup folder, shut the ones down that are not AV related.
mine has 2, allowed here, windows defender and malwarebytes.
others will slow the system even HP stuff here can.
and for sure lots more. seen some with 25 useless things there.

4: worn driver for w7 used, only the HP drivers work seen here.


5: using new USB head phones, that will conflict with the HP chips
HP nor MS support USB headphones, so unplug all USB devices
does the stock speakers work now, BINGO.\
it can be made to work if you disable the sound chip not being used. and I dont teach that. here. Yes USB has a sound chip in the head phone muffs.

run CCleaner, google it.

you can also go to the link about and run all w7 HP drivers
or do a HP full system restore to make it like new.
you have many choices,. and more. ask

HP Pavilion... | Answered on Jun 01, 2017 | 73 views

only Microsoft and answer this, call them and ask?
they owned hotmail for many years now.

only they can fix this....
next time?
use a very long complex password
then nobody can ever hack it.

then wright it down, for sure.

or use the 1s letter of a long poem.
then write it down
or this story repeats
if you google this, its like 1billion hits.
you are in same boat.

if it dont already have a administrator password. reboot desktop and keep pushing f8 until you see safemode option.try clicking on the administrator. if not password protected then login go to user accounts and click on change an account, then go to the account with the password then remove password. if it does have a password either have to format it or remove hard drive and instal into another deskot as the secondary and take over user rights for that drive to retrieve all your important info then reinstall in desktop and reinstall windows. or if recovery partition do a recovery during boot

You can try the computer without Windows by booting from a Linux Mint USB drive. Look on ebay.

If it works fine with this then Windows has a problem.

If it locks up on Mint then the computer hardware has a problem.

The usual problem with laptops is overheating due to a blocked fan.

join the linux forum, get help at opensuse, form.
the key here is getting the linux boot to give you the many choices.
my guess is its GRUB2 ,boot menu...

here are the steps for Ubuntu,


for windows to do that it be BCDedit.
I'd use Grub2.

1. Identify where RAM resides:
- On the front (you will either need to access the RAM memory by removing the front parts of the laptop (Keyboard, Touchpad etc)
- On the back ( usually a RAM memory door to unscrew)
2. After accessing RAM sockets, hold both metal prongs to the side. The RAM memory card will release from the motherboard.
3. Gently hold the ram card on a 45-degree angle and remove the card.
4. Install your new replacement RAM memory.
