    I would like to first say thanks so much for taking the time to send me the link.
    Unfortunatly it is still crashing my computer.
    It takes a bit longer for it to crash now, but after a few seconds it crashes again.

    When I test it , it says its working properly, there is no cautionary triangle next to it
    warning me that something wrong,

    but something is wrong. I dont know if something is conflicting with it or what
    how can I find out????

    Thanks for your help

Just uploaded the driver for you. Works with XP and Vista.
Checked with Symantec antivirus software and it's clean.
Just download, double click to extract to a folder of your choice and run the Setup icon.

Acer orbi cam


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

Acer orbi cam not working


Wow..i've posted many answers to the Orbi Cam...

I will repost the urls for you...Being an Acer owner, I know how frustrating it is getting this camera to work.

First of all, uninstall any drivers you currently have for that orbi cam.
Secondly, visit this site and install

Camera Bison Driver ver. 5.0

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5680.html

Once you have downloaded that specific driver, extract it, and reboot. Let me know if this works for you ...if not we can install the Orbi Cam driver as well, from the same site..

Good Luck

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.
