If you have a grey rectangle where ur cam should be. Especially after a fresh install plus all the drivers. although Then here's your solution :)

Go into device manager and delete the USB controller. Then reboot. When it says new hardware found let it automatically install it. Et voila, working cam :)

Are you using google or yahoo? Google is blocking many that use automated programs.

"Don’t use unauthorized computer programs to submit pages, check rankings, etc. Such programs consume computing resources and violate our Terms of Service. Google does not recommend the use of products such as WebPosition Gold™ that send automatic or programmatic queries to Google." I suggest that you don't use the automated programs with the same computer you are checking your mail with. where as yahoo only does sometimes

Not working

when you use cam in skype that time confirm your self that your not log in yahoomessenger, msn or other video chat. Becose if your cam working in any other messenger or site that time you can access your cam in skype. On that moment Skype cam window show you grey color. And another reason is Skype looking for little bit good speed net connection. If your net little bit slow then also you find your cam window is Grey. Just follow the way, hope you het success.

Acer orbicam

There are two software entities involved – the camera Drivers and the OrbiCam application itself – and BOTH need replacing/updating to fix this problem.
The new driver and a new version of webcam application (below) seem to fix the issue.
The correct files to download are:
Acer Orbicam driver (Bison)
Acer Orbicam Bison utility

These can be found here under the MS Windows Vista drop down menu:
In order to fix the problem, you must download and install them both to make the Orbicam work correctly.

1. remove the installed OrbiCam application and reboot if required;
2. install the new driver (preferably with the “driver update” wizard from Device Manager)
3. update the Orbicam application

After this, the webcam should function properly, even if the original Orbicam icon disappears.
To check everything is working OK run LiveCa07.exe or BisonM07.exe that are located in the c:\windows\bisonxxx\ folder or simply run Messenger
