HP Pavillion dv9000 - won't power up

I had the exact same problem so I called HP support.The instructions were- remove power cord from lap top if power cord is connected, then remove battery, connect power cord to lap top then turn on lap top by holding power button down for 30 seconds. It booted up, no problem. The proceedure is to remove static electricity.

To enable my webcam

These instructions will show you exactly how to find the built-in webcam and enable it when using the Windows Vista operating system.

There's a few different challenges with the laptop webcam so if enabling the camera wasn't your problem, try this page which has more information on <a href="http://www.acreativedesktop.com/webcam-setup-vista.html">setting up the laptop webcam</a>.

QuickPlay won't play one blu ray disc but plays all others.

I would take the movie back. We have found DVDs which cause similar problems.

DVD Player region coding changes

You can only change the region code 4 times then it locks on the last change.
There are some firmware upgrades that can change the drive to region free, if you can screw it up or put in the wrong frmware upgrade then the DVD drive will be a piece on junk.
I suggest you install a region free software that will allow you to play and region DVDs.
Go to www.dvdidle.com to get their Region-Free software, it is not very expensive.

DVD's wont play - says wrong region but they are compatible

To change the Region code on your player, open Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device manager, and click on DVD/CD ROM drives, then right click on the DVD drive and click Properties then click on DVD Region.
You can enter a new region and it also shows you how many changes have been made.
NOTE you can make only 4 changes and the player will lock permanently on the 4th change.
If you want to play DVD from any region you maybe able to upgrade the firmware to make it region free BUT if you make a mistake or installed the wrong firmware the player will be a piece of junk.
The best solution to make the player region free is to install a piece of software that allows you to play DVDs from any region. There are several available on the Internet but my favourite is DVD-Region Free

Some of my outgoing mail won't 'send' I just keep

Outlook and Outlook Express both report that error number when they can't find or connect to your mail server.
Understanding what's happening is fairly easy. Fixing requires some additional information.

I'll focus here on Outlook Express, but similar steps are appropriate for Outlook as well.
Typically you'll see an error message much like this:
oemailservererror.png Unfortunately, many people seem to fixate on the error number at the end - 0x800ccc0d. While that can be useful, and it's easy to search on, they're missing all the additional information that Outlook is providing in the error. Specifically, this:
The host 'wrongmailserver.com' could not be found.
That's a big clue as to what's going on. Your email account is configured to retrieve email from the server 'wrongmailserver.com' (a fictitious server I made up for this example), and Outlook Express cannot connect to that mail server.
Step one? Make sure you can connect to anything else on the internet - any web page will do. Error 0x800ccc0d can occur because you're not connected to the internet at all, and visiting any random web page simply verifies that your internet connection is working.
If your internet connection is not working, that has nothing to do with Outlook, Outlook Express or error 0x800ccc0d. Your mail failure is just one symptom of not being connected to the internet.
If you are connected, step 2 is to validate your Outlook Express account configuration. Specifically, if you click on the Tools menu in Outlook Express, then click on the Accounts menu item, and then in the resulting dialog box click on the Mail tab, you should see something like this:
oeaccountsdialog.png "If the Incoming Mail (POP3): setting is wrong, then error 0x800ccc0d can result." If you have more than one account, you may see multiple items in the list. Click on the one with which you are having trouble and click on Properties. In the resulting dialog box, click on the Servers tab and you should see something like this:
oeaccountproperties.png Note the arrows pointing at the two instances of the mail servers you would be using: one for POP3 (incoming email) and one for SMTP (outgoing email).
If the Incoming Mail (POP3): setting is wrong, then error 0x800ccc0d can result. In fact, the error message you got originally, "The host 'wrongmailserver.com' could not be found." is telling you that the mail server specified here could not be contacted.
So, what do you do?
I can't tell you what this setting should be, because it varies from ISP to ISP. What I use is different from what you use. So, you'll need to double check the information you were given from your ISP to see what they said your mail server name should be. Make sure you've entered that exactly. In fact, it probably makes sense to double check your entire configuration while you're here.
It's also possible that your mail server may simply be down - the ISP could be having trouble, for example, or the ISP could have changed mail servers. You'll need to contact your ISP to determine if this is the case, and whether or not they have an alternative mail server you can use, or how long you might need to wait for things to be fixed.

A co worker gave me

New computers rarely have modems built in, you can tell by the existence of a RJ-11 (2 conductor) jack on the side or back to plug your phone line in. And also right click computer then properties then device manager. Then look for a modem under Network... If you have a serial port, an older external modem might do the trick, But likely you have only USB ports and are chasing more trouble to go from USB to Serial to Modem. A USB modem is probably expensive as well. For the mouse, look at a second hand store for a USB mouse or borrow one and try that.

Curser wont move page up or down

Make sure you have the mouse driver installed, the mouse driver for the trackpad, allows more functions and features from the trackpad. Like the one you want. See the hp website, look under keyboard,mouse,input section.

File system error 1073741521

As per the error message you had received, I beleive that the File System (Partition Table) in your Hard Drive is curropted because of which you are unable to store any data.

The only option available is to burn the requried data into DVDs and perform full recovery and reinstall the Operating System to factory default settings.

This will format the Hard Drive and will also recreate the File System (Partition Table).
