Re: hp pavillion dv6000

Sounds like either a virus, an incorrect driver or conflict, or a reinstallation is needed. Seems to me these problems began when you installed the webcam, my experience with this kind of thing is when a new driver is installed it sometimes does work correctly with the system settings casusing a severe conflict. All of the devices that are put out on the market are not guaranteed to work with each individual PC especially those PC's that are not directly bought from the manufacture.
This is typical! I would try to remove the drivers for the Webcam! Uninstall any software loaded with this webcam!
Here are the steps:
Click on start
Click on Control panel
Click on Add/remove software
A list will populate may take a few minutes
Locate the name of the drivers to your webcam
Uninstall them completely and anything link to it
This may fix the problem! Reboot your computer!
See what happens! If the problem persists even after the removal of the drivers. I would reinstall my OS and all of my programs!

How to replace a power supply in a hp pavillion dv6000

DV6000s are laptops and do not have internal power supplies. The power supply is actually on the AC adapter which plugs into your wall. However, if you need to replace something internally here is a link to a tear down video for the DV6000.

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 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

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.
