Question about Acer Computers & Internet
About your question how to find out if your camera is turned on, I believe you can use an application like Yahoo Messenger or Skype, open any of the apps I mentioned or anything that utilizes a camera should give you information that the camera is turned Off, if the application shows you an image of you then your camera is already turned on.
Most Laptops have to use functions keys to press to turn the camera ON and OFF by holding down the FN key + Esc for ex. but this will differ from what laptop you have some may have a different function key combination from what I typed in above, on top of your keyboard are function keys F1-F12 and it will have icons each indicating what additional function each key will turn ON and OFF.
I hope this will help in finding out if your camera is turned ON or Off.
