The HP Pavilion DV6000 is a laptop from HP's entertainment series; this series is optimized for media and gaming. Unlike some of the newer models, it doesn't feature a built-in webcam. Webcams are an asset to online communication, allowing you to stream a live recording of yourself. Installing an external webcam to use with this laptop model is quick and easy.
1.Plug the webcam into a free USB port on your laptop.
2.Wait for any missing drivers to load; a notification will appear in your system tray when the process is finished. If drivers do not load automatically, see Resources for a download link.
3.Wait for the webcam software to install itself. Alternatively, if your webcam came with a CD, insert it and install the software from there.
4.Open the webcam software to turn on your webcam. Once the software loads, you will be able to see your webcam image.
Select the Operating System and download the webcam driver. After the download is complete, install the driver and restart the computer. Please ensure that while installing the driver none of the messengers like Yahoo or MSN are running. Restart the computer and it should work.
ok ..I dont know exactly the problem that you have ...but I am link-ing you to the site where you will find all drivers for your model ... so ..if you are running windows vista ....just go to control panel and uninstall the driver from remove programs .... then you either install the new driver ...and after that run the wizard from add new hardware ...or it will prompt you for a driver after you uninstall the old one ...I dont know if its a build in or not web cam ...anyway the procedure is the same ...you will be also be prompt for restart pav dv6000 drivers
