The HP Pavilion Dv6000 is a laptop computer that was produced by the Hewlett Packard Corporation in 2006. It was described by the company as an "entertainment notebook PC." The computer runs on an AMD processor and a vibrant display and leading graphics technology. An integrated webcam is available on the computer, but some users have had difficulty finding out how to launch it, as they cannot see an icon or shortcut on which to click.
