You might want to try to go into Safe Mode.

Basically, reboot the computer and press F8 repeatedly till a DOS-like screen appears. Hopefully you'll be greeted by several options, the top (or third option in Windows 7) will be to boot into Safe Mode.

Obviously Safe Mode is our plan of attack. What this will do is bypass all drivers (including the pesky "new" driver that got loaded onto your system).

Once booted you'll want to Hold down the Windows key (on your keyboard) then hit the Pause/Break key. This will open your system window (this is where you'll see what version Windows your running and some of your system components installed).

What you want to do is left click the mouse (unless you remapped your mouse for a left-hander, then it would be right click) on the Device Manger link at the top Left hand corner of that window.
I have a Hp Pavilion - c2b416c.pngOnce in there you'll want to select your video card (it'll be inside Display Adapters) in the drop down menu and double click on it. This will bring up the properties for your video card.

Once in there you'll want to select "Driver", then hit the "Roll Back Driver" button...

Now this SHOULD remedy the situation by re-installing the older driver and giving your computer back to you. I say 'should' because I haven't run into a situation where the driver didn't roll back because your in Safe Mode; meaning, that some functions are shut off when in Safe Mode... But I haven't seen this happen for drivers (or at least don't remember it ever having happened).

Reboot and you should be all better.

Hope this helped...

My battery is at 0% and does not charge and whenever i take out the power chord my computer automatically turns off. Any help


here is a good resource I found:

Solution for HP Pavilion DV6000 Battery Not Charge
  • Reinstalling the power management software has just fixed it for me. Go to device manager and under batteries, unistall the Microsoft ACPI Compliant Control Method Battery. Go to Actions on the menu bar and select ’scan for hardware changes’. It will reinstall it and hopefully start charging immediately (mine did anyway).
  • If your HP Pavillion dv6000 has a battery that won’t charge yet still turns on when plugged in, turn off the laptop and remove the battery then wait for around 30 seconds, re-insert it and turn it back on, the charging update should say, plugged in, charging.
  • I made the bios update, and works for me. My Dv6000 battery problems were fixed. The battery led always blinking every time and the battery didn’t charge. Now it’s ok !
    http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&dlc=en&product=3245619
  • If it is still under warranty you can chat with an online hp tech who will check it out over the internet and send you a replacement for free. the dv 6000 laptops have a recall on a few problems and there is a bios update to fix it before it happens but will not correct it after the fact the recall on specific problems extends the warranty to 24 months http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01087277&lc=en&cc=us&lang=en&dlc=en&product=3245619 should get you to the warranty page.
  • Just got it to charge again.While the laptop is powered and in Windows XP, press and hold the POWER button until it dies. Then, remove the dv6000 laptop battery. Power it back up and enter Windows. Then, re-insert the battery.
  • So I always remove the Hp dv6000 battery after I have powered down the laptop, and I have not had any battery problems since then!
  • I had the same issue my fix was a new cmos battery that was only $10.00 and install updated bios software from HP
  • I had the dv6000 battery problem where it showed my battery NOT CHARGING. I took it apart because my QUICKPLAY would not work either and the QUICKPLAY lights stayed on even after I shut down the laptop. I found that the black ribbon cable on the right (the other looks the same but you can see it is for the power button) was slightly kiltered in the flat socket it goes to underneath the area where the quickplay button is. I straightened it out and made sure it was pushed all the way in and locked and put it all back together and everything worked perfectly after that. About a month before that my POWER and SOUND didn`t work. I did the same thing to fix those problems. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THOSE CABLES EXACTLY RIGHT in there, IT MAY JUST BE YOUR PROBLEM TOO.
  • Some people dont realise that you should avoid short charges and discharges, if your batery does not go above 40% mabe its charge memory thinks its full. to fix this problem let the batery run fully down, then charge it all the way again. try it a few times if it doesnt work. and you have to go all the way, not let windows go into hibernation. to do that you need to get the batery low, then boot to some boot disk and let it sit till the batery dies.
  • HP has posted BIOS updates to address battery problems as well as the auto startup on some.If you will post the full model number,someone can help you find your driver/updates page.
Hope this helps, please rate! ^_^

Cant turn my built in webcam on??


Hi,

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
