you haven't phsically uninstalled the cam, its built in, as it would have automatically installed again at the next startup, the same thing happens to a lot of ACER notebooks, follow these instruction at the below link

Hmm well here are the directions to follow if you are using XP (as you mentioned at the end of your problem) it may also work when used with vista.

  1. Press ‘Alt + F10' to start eRecovery Management.
  2. Enter default password of 6 zero's. Example: 000000
    (Note: if this default password does not work, then a different password has taken its place. Acer is not responsible for any forgotten or misplaced passwords.)
  3. Select ‘Recovery Actions' and click ‘Next'
  4. Select ‘Reinstall Applications/drivers' and click ‘Next'
  5. On the left hand side of the newly opened window select the following: Windows XP
    ? Driver
    ?Camera
  6. On the right side of the same window, click ‘Install Camera Driver Now'
  7. The unit will reboot after the installation is complete.
Good Luck and dont forget to rate me!!

install your drivers brunella then do a windows update ignor when pop comes up says cant do it with the continue button hit continue on the driver install and do windows update

windows vista doesnt like the older equipment for some reason it doesnt work well with some new hardware just to let you know vista is still in its infancy stage getting better as its source and updates go along

go to

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_9300.html

and download the 'webcam_bison_v5.0.0.10f

unzip the file and then run the exe file and put a shortcut to this on your desktop instead of orbicam and it does the same job.

also..if you are having msn problems there is a ungrade to acer esecurity which seems to help

unfortunately there could be the possibility that your acer cam is not compatible with vista.. vista is a tricky os right now so it is particular on devices and compatability issues--i was an early adoptor and it isn't fun.. i would check out logitech cams, they seem to work well but look for the vista compatible.. you may want to visit your acer website and see if there are any update or downloads for current users that now have vista.. hope this helps..

Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering technology Acer E-recovery - choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say extracting) - once extracted - click Install - click Vista on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the right side of the screen, click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions.

** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera will not work - Cut and Paste all pictures in that folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.
