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.
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,1Log in to your account at the MSN Web site.
Locate the "Webcam" icon underneath your Display picture. 3
Click the "Webcam" icon.
4Select "Send My Webcam" to the person that you want to send your video to.
Wait for your chat partner to accept your Webcam invitation.
Once he or she accepts it, your live video feed will begin.
6Finish sending the video feed by clicking the "Webcam" icon once again.
To hide or show it, Open MSN Messenger on your computer.
2Click the "Tools" menu and then select "Options" from the drop-down list.
Step3Locate the "Personal" link and click it with your mouse.
Find the "My Webcam" area and either select or de-select next to where it says
"Allow Others to See That I Have a Webcam." This is handy for letting those in your chat list know whether you can have a video chat with them--whether or not they have Webcams too
Hope this helps
