Please check the device connection and make sure that the device is not being used by another application or user." When I first installed my Win XP, it was WORKING!

Model5742 web cam not working


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use your Acer OrbiCam but it won't connect, the driver--a small software file that tells the webcam what to do--may be outdated.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 1.0.0.13" 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.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya

Webcam not found on my computer


Hi,
You will have to download a new driver from acer website. Go to the site, locate the driver link and click it. Enter your product information and there you are. Install the new downloaded driver and install it on the laptop. The webcam should be working after this.
Kindly rate my solution on fixya website. Thanks.

Acer 5630 orbicam


press ctrl + alt + del one after the other but holding them down in that order, check what programs may be running or using it, if you see what is using it, go to run (in start menue), type services.msc hit enter then look for that program and disable it, that way it wont be able to use it again.
