I can't turn it on, yet the light that tells me that it is on and working is always illuminated, even while there is nothing using the camera. The light at the login screen immediately after booting up the laptop.
When I go to use the camera, the light goes off, but as soon as I give up trying to use it, the light illuminates again.
Using Kaspersky I did a full scan of my laptop for a virus or something that might cause this, yet it found nothing. My next thought is that perhaps I'm missing a driver or something from the laptop.
Anyhow, I was wondering if you guys might have any ideas as to what might be happening? It's a HP G62, and I formatted the drive last year sometime. It was working normally up until about a week ago. I think I was trying to Skype my ex prior to it happening.
