Question about HP Pavilion DV6449US Notebook
Unsure if I installed the right motherboard or if it just went bad.
Usually when the laptop overheats it is due to the lack of air flow from the bottom of the laptop, or a poor airflow from the internal fan.
in both cases buy a can of compressed air, open the base and spray out the fan and path then tape or glue 1 penny in each of the 4 corners on the bottom of the laptop (cheapest way to raise it off the table or desk) or purchase a cooling pad for your laptop. usually plugs in any available USB port.
As for webcam check for a break in the lines from the cam to the connection on the Motherboard then check the pins to see if any are bent on the motherboard. if the pins are bent use a credit card or discount card to straighten them back out. if the line is broken you can attempt to repair it by splicing the line back together and tapping it with electrical tape to prevent any further shorts or buy a new/used cam on ebay. (side note... you may want to check the HP website and see if they have an updated driver for your cam before taking the Laptop apart just for the cam issue)

I used to have these same problems. I replace my BIOS battery, which I know was dead, because all settings get reset when I unplug the power and remove main battery. You might not have to replace it if its still good. Back to the main battery problem, You have a good change of solving this by going into BIOS, and under Tools there is a Battery Calibration option. Do the calibration for the main battery and-or other optional batteries attach and it will most likely solve the problems. This calibration process will take a long time; 1-charge, 2-discharge, 3-recharge, so leave it over night or however.
There was a mention of updating BIOS. This could solve the problem too, because BIOS controls the charging unit. Also, make sure you have Compaq Power Management install on your OS, (download at hp.com).
One note: it will not charge if the battery is about 93% or higher. 93 is not exact, but close to 90%. so test by discharging to below 90% and it will start charging again.
If anyone tries this, leave a post of your success or failure.

your webcam is external or built-in in your laptop? just plug your webcam and it will automatically detect by wyour windows and will be ask a driver for installation of your webcam....if you have a cd driver of your cam insert it to cd-drive and follow the instructions on your screen...

There is a class action lawsuit currently being initiated against HP for this issue. The Complaint alleges that HP misrepresented and concealed material facts regarding certain laptops including a design defect, which causes the power jacks of the laptops to fail.
