tell me about it, it seems to be an inherrent fault with this model, this sometimes works though.
swivel the camera around to face the rear of the notebook (making sure you turn it the right way) and turn it back again, now try to run the camera again, keep clicking the icon to start the cam and eventually it comes on.
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.
Press ‘Alt + F10' to start eRecovery Management.
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.)
Select ‘Recovery Actions' and click ‘Next'
Select ‘Reinstall Applications/drivers' and click ‘Next'
On the left hand side of the newly opened window select the following: Windows XP ? Driver ?Camera
On the right side of the same window, click ‘Install Camera Driver Now'
The unit will reboot after the installation is complete.
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.
