The above link is for a webpage that links to drivers for your laptop. There are a number of different OrbiCam drivers for you to choose from. Download the drivers and manually update them instead of having the computer search for updated drivers.

Hope this helps.

Acer orbicam


The obvious thing is to upgrade the driver.. Have you tried that? Also when you say windows are searching..? I assume you mean you have reported the problem to Microsoft? If you have installed some new software, it may be caused by that.. Also you might try to fall back to an earlier restore point. That is always an option. It does seem as if the driver is fine, otherwise you would not be able to use it on Skype, which means it's probably related to Windows. I'd upgrade the driver or fallback to a previous restore point via Windows.. Let me know if you need further explanation..

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

Acer orbicam has stopped working


** 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.

If that does not work then do this:

Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering Technology then Acer E-Recovery - The look at the bottom and you will
"Backup", "Burn disk" and Restore" choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say
extracting) - once extracted - click Install or Guides and Manuals if needing Orbicam instructions - click Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the
right side of the screen, then look for Bison driver or (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) you have then click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions. Then repeat steps above and instead of driver choose Bison (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) Utility
