The HP Pavilion DV6000 is a laptop from HP's entertainment series; this series is optimized for media and gaming. Unlike some of the newer models, it doesn't feature a built-in webcam. Webcams are an asset to online communication, allowing you to stream a live recording of yourself. Installing an external webcam to use with this laptop model is quick and easy.
1.Plug the webcam into a free USB port on your laptop.
2.Wait for any missing drivers to load; a notification will appear in your system tray when the process is finished. If drivers do not load automatically, see Resources for a download link.
3.Wait for the webcam software to install itself. Alternatively, if your webcam came with a CD, insert it and install the software from there.
4.Open the webcam software to turn on your webcam. Once the software loads, you will be able to see your webcam image.
Check Control Panel>Devices and Printers. if the camera is installed, you should see the Acer Crystal Eye webcam. if you do not see the webcam, You will have to get the driver from either the web or HP.
If you see the webcam, Double click the webcam icon and click hardware>properties to check for proper operation. if everyting is fine, then the application you are using needs to be looked at.
If the webcam is not working properly according to the device status, right click the webcam icon in the Devices and Printers window and follow the instructions.
Let me know if this solves the problem or if we need to investigate further. Thanks.
I have an HP Pavilion Entertainment PC laptop and it has a built in webcam. You can see if yours does by going to this free webcam test site. If yours is a desktop model then you won't have a webcam and will need to use an external one that plugs into your USB port.
First uninstall the drivers and then download the latest bios update for your notebook from hp.com and then restart the computer.... then install the latest updated drivers for webcam from hp.com and check this will surely work.
If not then check for quickplay driver update too.
Another thing open task manager and then go to processes and check wethere you can find the webcam running or not if yes then right click and end the task , also check for the programs that might use webcam like if you have installed yahoo or skype messenger end the program task too.
hi bonino this nichu ,let me tell you that this is not the problem of yours ,it is the problem of the one with whom you chat.
the person whom you are chatting with must allow you to see his/her webcam,
while chatting first confirm that the person with whom you are chatting is having a webcam.
there is nothing problem with your webcam.stay cool.....
take care ,bye & have a nice day
