20 Most Recent HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook Questions & Answers

To enable MP classic to play different video formats you need to install codecs. Think of them as drivers used to operate a printer scanner etc.

I suggest you download the Basic K-Lite codec pack and close WM player. Install the codecs and try playing the video again. To start the download, click here.

Other options are to use another player. The following two are free and more user friendly:



Note: If you cannot download from the above links or if they do not work, go to google.com and search for the desired program like klite codec etc.

If you are still unable to get WM play videos then it is likely that it is of an unrecognized format like mov, rm. etc If so then try installing Real Player or Quicktime player as required.

There can other issues be also like drivers not installed but just try the above and we'll move on to next solution if needed.

Most movies saved on the servers online are not compatible with windows media player since they are uploaded in different formats to decrease size and decrease uploading time. Common files like Mp4, .avi, rmvb, .mkv, etc....

If you want them to play using the windows media player, you'll need codecs like Klitemega codec packs, acemegacodec packs. You can download Klite Mega codec Packs here. Download and install it, then restart your system and try playing the download movies.

If this doesn't help, you better use a player like Vlc Media player, (click here to download), Install and run, you will be able to play any type of media using this player.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

    Look closely at your statement. Works fine until the laptop overheats is an overheating problem, not a wifi problem. Make sure the air vents are clear from any dust or debris. Most laptops have a passive cooling system, so any blockabve of those vents can cause it to overheat. Also, when it overheats is it on your lap or on a hard surface? ironically, the worst thing you can do with a laptop is to use it whie it is on your lap. Your legs actually block the vents giving it no way to keep itself cool. The other thing to look at is the fan inside. Is it running constantly, intermittantly or not at all ever? The fan will only run if the CPU starts to get to a preprogrammed temperature. If it's running constantly, then it definitely needs to be looked at. likewise if it bnever comes on at all.

    To turn it on, you need software like Skype or any other chatting social software like Viber to really take advantage of it. Second you need an account for social media program and a very good strong high speed internet connection, so the webcam you show yourself to a friend or family on the other side doesn't look like a pixel mess and vice versa.

    Make sure google is up to date. They have not too long ago updated the good chrome software.

    Do a virus/malware scan to see if that causing it to crash. I generally use malwarebytes, its free to use to scan and remove. You can pay for 1 year for it, up to you to decide.

    Make sure you have adequate ram to run chrome, its not a good idea to keep too many tabs, if your system cannot handle the load. Google chrome loves to eat chunky memory.

    hp 3d drive guard, its a function of the laptop where if the laptop happens to be dropped, the hard drive will immediately go into park mode (Like how the car with built in sensors to auto brake to detect ahead of time accidents).

    The driver can be downloaded from HP website or the easier thing is to get it from Windows update itself.

    I understood that the laptop you are using the hp pavilion dv6000z has already a pretty good burner..
    • 8x DVD-/+R
    • 8x DVD+RW, 6x DVD-RW
    • 4x DVD-/+R DL
    • 5x DVD-RAM
    • 24x CD-R
    • 24x CD-RW
    so ...all you have to do is to learn how to use it ...and for this I recomand Nero softwaer ...even elder versions of this software works great ..and you can make a data dvd with files like dvdrip avi ...that most dvd and all copmuter will playback it..also ...you can burn dvd or Vcd that will be seen in all ...in the matter of the music ...all pm3 players can read data cd ....meaning just mp3 burned into a disk ...and for cd players that reads only old track format you can make them in windows media player ...so read about and use your burner...
