    My dv6646 (6500 series) notebook will freeze in the middle of tasks, such as internet, photos, and DVD's. When this happens, and I can't even access the start menu to safely shut down my PC.

    Other times, when I do want to shut down, and I choose the shut down option, the computer goes through what I presume are the "normal" shut down procedures, but it never happens. I receive an error message (something to the effect of, "your computer was not able to properly shut down"), and have the option of starting Windows in safe mode or normal mode.

    I am relatively computer-savvy, so I'm open to all help. It's finals week and I need my PC to work!

    Thanks in advance.

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!

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.
