Re: several problems with HP dv6000
The problem is you have an HP DV6000. Those, and their Compaq counterparts are notoriously problematic.
The clock has everything to do with the CMOS battery. Check the drivers for the network.
Which USB port is bad? Is it the one next to the power jack? If so, there is a wire inside the laptop connecting it to the motherboard.
