No idea how to turn off my webcam...

Got the laptop not long ago and just getting the hang of it but cannot figure out how to turn the webcam off once it was activated. It was turned on earlier by taking a picture on facebook and now the light is still on and I'm wondering if there's any way other than turning the pc off alltogether to shut it off. I'm possitive there's a way, but I'm lost :)

Usually when you click the x on the corner it's shutting down ...but maybe you got some error in this case the easy way to do it its by right click on the task bar ...choose task manager ...select the web cam from the processes or after case applications...if you find it active there ...and just click end process
but I am sure that it might be active just the night vision or something ...and it is turning off after all when you clik it off normal from upper right corner

Try installing the Acer Chicony webcam driver, instead of the HP one.
Alternatively ensure the software is explicitly looking at the HP camera, not just 'default'

Bluetooth problem


I have a motorizr z3 that I purchased a week ago. I cannot get the blue tooth to turn on. I ONCE got my Plantronics bluetooth synced but it would never turn on again, so I deleted it off, and now everytime I try and turn bluetooth on, I get a message of "Bluetooth Power Failed - try again later". It tells me the same thing when I try Setup or Find Me...any ideas how to get this to work?
