I have a Predator Helios 300 laptop and a Mpow Air Pro headset.

My headset works just fine on my desktop, but for some reason when I plug it into my laptop it turns on the camera. This is obviously a little creepy and I was wondering how to stop it and what is causing it.


As instructed in the below article that this is expected behavior for some Acer models and could be resolved by turning off the Waves NX functionality.
