Asus eee netbook tip: How to turn the camera on or off

By | July 13, 2009

I own an Asus eee 900HA, running XP. I was expecting to find a hotkey sequence on the keyboard for turning on or off the built in webcam. There isn’t one. However, Asus provides a utility in the system tray (bottom right hand corner of desktop.)
eee utility to turn on or off the webcam
You can download the User Guide from Asus, and it does contain this information.

Just right-click on the icon and you’ll see options to turn on or off the webcam, and options to turn on or off the wireless connection.

    Asus Eee is not only portable, it is also one of the most affordable netbooks you can buy. Asus is also a good brand which means quality and reliabilty.

    I kind of love the Asus Eee PC because it is very small and very light. I have an Acer Laptop and it is really a big burden on my small shoulders “
