The Acer OrbiCam is a built-in 1.3 megapixel webcam mounted at the top of certain Acer laptops. The webcam can record video clips and integrate with instant messaging software. If you are trying to use your Acer OrbiCam but it won't connect, the driver--a small software file that tells the webcam what to do--may be outdated. Acer provides webcam driver update pages for the Aspire 9300 and Aspire 5570 versions.
1.Go to the Acer 5570 or Acer 9300 Driver Download page (see Resources). 2.Click "MS Windows XP" or "MS Windows Vista" on the drop-down menu, depending on your operating system. 3.Select "Acer OrbiCam Bison Driver" from the menu. 4.Click "Save File > OK" and wait for it to download. 5.Double-click on the downloaded setup files to install the driver. 6.Go back to the Acer Downloads page, and select "Acer OrbiCam Driver Bison Utility 22.214.171.124" from the drop-down menu. 7.Click on "Save File > OK" and wait for it to download. Double-click on the downloaded setup files to install the driver. 8.Restart the computer.

yes [http://www.laptopreviews.org.uk/acer-lap… take a look yes it's has but only 0.3 MP
you have an option on your desktop called acer orbicam--the icon is a blue asterik looking thing. if you can't find it on the desk top you should see it in "all programs" under the accessories file. they options should be listed in alphabetical order once you get into the files. just click it and make sure the eye is pointed at yourself or wherever you want it and you should see it right on the screen.
