  1. A very nice web site
    Thanks a bunch for this great info

  2. i need to help
    driver audio

    1. get the hardware ID for the audio and post it here

  3. Hi Aziz. I am trying to figure out why my webcam in my DV9000 is not being recognized in device manager.

    There is one more driver needed in device manager for an unknown device which I'm sure is the webcam.

    I have tried this:

    -uninstalling the device, reinstalling
    -took out the webcam from the DV9000 and switched it with one in my other DV6000...the dv9000 cam worked in the dv6000 but the dv6000 did not work in the
    dv9000. I even pulled the driver from the dv6000 while the dv900 cam was inserted and tried to load it after I put the cam back onto the dv9000 and nothing.

    -I've tried installing different versions of co processors etc...

    Not sure what the issue is or if the cam is not programmed properly.

    The operating system the dv9000 came with was Vista home premium but I am now running Win 7 home Premium. I assume the webcam worked in the Vista version but can't be 100%

    Ideas: the cable running from the motherboard which connects to the cam may be faulty since the cam worked in the DV6000 but the dv6000 cam did not work in the dv9000. Faulty connections possibly....



    1. Normally what I will do is try to install Windows Vista webcam driver in windows 7 with different type of compatibility mode such as windows vista or windows vista sp2.
      It is also worth to try with HP Universal webcam driver (download here: http://laptop-driver.blogspot.com/2014/07/hp-webcamcamera-driver-universal.html
