Acer OrbiCam not working in Aspire 5600

I have installed the Windows Vista Ultimate on my Aspire 5600 and since then my Orbicam has not worked. I tried installing the drivers for Vista but nothing happened...I get a message saying "your camera is not connected or some other software is using it".Also, how can I find out which driver version (Logitech or Bison) is the appropriate one?Thank you

Acer OrbiCam not working (acer aspiral9412zwsmi)


Has it worked in the past, on this computer?
Have you recently upgraded to Vista?

Here is a suggestion:
There are two software entities involved – the camera Drivers and the OrbiCam application itself

The new driver and a new version of webcam application (below)

The correct files to download are:
Acer Orbicam driver (Bison)
Acer Orbicam Bison utility 1.0.0.13

These can be found here under the MS Windows Vista drop down menu:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_9300.html
You need to download and install them both.

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 1.0.0.13

These can be found here under the MS Windows Vista drop down menu:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_9300.html
In order to fix the problem, you must download and install them both to make the Orbicam work correctly.

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IN THE SAME ORDER:
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 1.0.0.13

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

There are two types of driver for the orbicam, Bison and Logitech, so ensure you have the correct one installed, especially if you are running Vista as it's a different driver again, and it's installed a seperate peice of hardware although it's built into the notebook. There are no listing for 5600 drivers so try 5610 they should be the same http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/tm_5610.html
