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

The problem is caused by a card that is either not built for the machine or is corrupt. This is not a driver issue as this message comes up in the POST (Power On Self Test) this is before any driver is loaded. The reason that this happens when a network card is replaced is because HP/Compaq laptops have a whitelist of allowed cards built into the bios. If the cards vendor and device id don't match one on the list they don't allow you to run it. This is simply so you have to line the pockets of HP spare parts for somthing 10 times more than what it is worth. The only solution is to flash your bios with a modified one to remove the white list. This is a very risky operation and could brick your machine. If your getting this error and have not changed your card the likely reason is corrupt card or the bios has somhow become corrupt. Good luck on this issue.

It is possible the Master boot Record has become corrupt. You can repair it using a tool for that purpose. Here is a KB article explaining your options and how to use the tool:
First try the Recovery Console options which you access via the F8 key. As your system is booting up, right before, or right when you see your manufacturers logo, but before you see the Windows Logo, begin tapping the F8 key until you see a menu of white words on a black background. Once there follow the instructions at the top most section of the article.
If this does not work you will need the Vista installation or Recovery disk to continue with the more advanced actions. You can use ANY Vista disk, so if you have a friend or family member who has one borrow it and then boot from it. Sometimes you must change the boot menu in order to boot from a disk. If it doesn't boot then you must enter the boot menu and change it so your CD/DVD drive is first in line. If you must do this you will also need to go back and reverse the change so you can boot from your hard disk to see if it worked. It is easy to alter the boot menu. Usually, the key(s) you press are shown on the screen as you boot. Write this down and then reboot and press the key(s). Then, simply locate the appropriate section and make the alterations. You must use your arrow keys to move around the options. There should be instructions on use of keys and how to exit, or save changes and exit.
If you do not know anyone with the Vista disk you will need to contact your manufacturer and request one. Usually all they will do is charge shipping, but you will have to wait until it arrives to try this repair. Sorry about that. That is one reason I insist on a installation or restoration disk when I buy a pre-built system. The manufacturers want to give out as few as possible, and in doing so tell people they don't need the disk because of their hidden recovery partition. However, the hidden recovery partition does not allow for repairs, only putting the system back into factory condition which wipes out everything you have added, all of your changes, and system preferences. Also, if you have not backed up your files you lose them too.
This is the best I can do with the information given. Somebody else may have other idea on how to fix your issue. Good luck and I hope it is simple to correct.
