Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook

1 Answer

HP Pavillion dv6000

You seem like you might be able to put me in the right direction.

When I record audio while using my web cam the noise floor is way too high.
For example, her is a link to a video i made:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WBVZ1Dd_EHE

As you can hear the noise is way high. My computer has 3 sound setting 0db 20db and 40db. i have mine on 40 but if i up it on 0 or 20 it is way to quiet and it still retains the same noise floor.

i have uninstalled and reinstalled drivers.

Also i recently got my hp laptop from my dad and reinstalled vista (to free up the slowness) with a friends DELL windows vista CD. I don't think that could cause the problem but maybe. My dad couldn't find the hp disc that came with the computer.

I will begin by reminding you that there's a great variety in the quality of microphones available out there, and point to this as a suspect for the cause of your difficulties. I would recommend, if audio fidelity is a concern, that you use an external microphone with a cable feed to your line input, but there are other people who think you can get acceptable quality recordings from internal mics.

Why doesnt my webcam work


Right-click on my computer, choose properties, hardware, device manager and see if the webcam is displayed anywhere. If not, you need to go to HP.com and get the webcam software/drivers. If it is, try downloading skype and seeing if it can power up your webcam. You may be able to do the same with MSN, but the msn webcam software is slow and ****.

Everyone's talking about how their's a built-in-webcam in our hp pavillion dv6000's laptop? is this true? if so, how do i get it to work? thanks!


Some DV6000 have web cams other's don't. It all depends on the model you have and if there is actually one in the housing. I have seen people who have DV6000 that did not come with one, change out the lid with one that did have a camera and just plug in the camera plug and download the camera software and it will fire right up. If your dv6000 has a camera, go to the HP website...here... http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/support.html

Put your units model number in the box and choose to go to the driver page. The web cams on DV6000 use the Cyberlink Youcam software and drivers for activation, and will work on most messengers and they also come with tutorials to guide you through the process.

Hp pavillion dv6000 - speakers buzzing after recording


First of all, check if the issue is with the Microphones of your Notebook.
Try disabling or turning off the Microphone of the Notebook to check this.
Additionally, try reinstalling the Audio Drivers of the notebook if possible by checking the Notebook driver page.

Cant turn my built in webcam on??


Hi,

This is known Webcam issue in DV6000 notebooks. To resolve or narrow down the issue, we have to check few things.

First open Device Manager.

Please follow these steps to open Device Manager:

1. Right Click on 'My Computer' icon on Desktop and choose Properties.
2. The System properties Window opens.
3. Click Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager button.

Expand + Imagining Devices and check if the HP Webcam is listed under it.

If Webcam is not listed there, then you have to contact HP to get the BIOS update.

If it is listed there, right click on it and select Disable. Again right click on it and select Enable.

Now open any applications like Quickplay and check if Webcam is working or not.

Please reply me if that won't resolve the issue, I can provide more work arounds
