Hp Pavilion dv9000 webcam is not working

It hasn't been working consistently for a year now.
I'll download a new Program and it will work the first time,
but then will disappear on my hard drive, and I have to download
it again. If anyone can help me fix this I'd be GREATLY appreciative.

If you need anymore details about Laptop model or
anything, please let me know!

    I have gone onto the Hp Pavilion website, inserted my version of their laptops, and downloaded the given driver and program along with it.

    After doing such, I would restart my computer and the file would be there. However, after opening it once it would say something like "The image cannot be previewed properly! Please check your camera plug in!".

    I'm assuming your running vista premium or Ultimate 64bit. Can your webcam be activated using Quickplay. If so it's just a glitch in vista - and I can supply a Hp Softpack number to load a Hp auth webcam program compatible with either Xp Or vista so let me know your software version.

    when you say download and install new programs "which Program"?
    Nothing can just disappear like that "For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction force."!

    do you shutdown the computer and when you turn it back on you notice the program is not there?

    aaare you running vista or xp

I had this problem, and I think i know yours. First of all, are you getting it from the HP website? And second of all, do you click Download, or Install? Downloading the file only uses it once. But that depends on if you click "Run" or "Save". Saving it saves it on your computer, where as running it only uses it once.
Hope this helps (:

I cant find where I go to turn on my built in web cam for my hp pavilion dv9000?

that depends on your usage, application or software.
for example, if you are using skype, select the menu choice for settings and choose video.
what program do you want to use your webcam for?
you may have to get software to use your webcam.
that software will have the webcam controls.

How long is the battery on a HP Pavilion dv9000 supposed to last?

Laptop batteries will usually last from 1.5 to 5 hours, depending upon the demand, the battery and the use. Sound burns up a lot of juice as does the DVD player so if you're watching movies or playing games an hour is about right. You can purchase a better HP PAVILION DV9000 Battery with 12 cell , it will work longger.

HP Pavilion dv9000 integrated webcam wont work, i'm using windows vista. It worked when i first got the laptop but has never worked after, On windows messengr, it just wont show the web cam symbol as if it...

If you did not have Vista with the new laptop then you will certainly need to go to HP's site which is very user friendly and download the Vista drivers for that webcam.

My hp pavillion dv9000's hinge broke. But I was able to use it after. Then I tried to close it..and it just shut off and it will not come on. I want to know what I can do to fi it

HP *had* issued service alert 08112101 which covers the left display hinge failure.
HP Notebook Left Display Hinge Program
HP Pavilion Notebook
model series affected: dv9000, dv9100, dv9200, dv9400.

This program recently ended on May 31, 2009, but HP may still allow for a grace period.

Otherwise, you'll need the following:
Display panel back panel enclosure (single lamp) 432957-001
Display hinge kit (single lamp) 432963-001
LCD bezel w/ webcam (single lamp) 432955-001

Trained pro's should be able to do this in about 20mins, there is partial lower case disassembly and complete LCD housing dis/re-assembly.
