Click on start, go under all programs, then click on orbi cam. if it still dosn't come on then one of the new updates or programs is causing it to have problems but... it will work on places like oovoo and skype.

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.

unfortunately there could be the possibility that your acer cam is not compatible with vista.. vista is a tricky os right now so it is particular on devices and compatability issues--i was an early adoptor and it isn't fun.. i would check out logitech cams, they seem to work well but look for the vista compatible.. you may want to visit your acer website and see if there are any update or downloads for current users that now have vista.. hope this helps..

Hi,
I think ur laptop webcam driver not installed properly.If ur laptop have windows vista operating system then do these steps.
Goto Start - Programs - Recovery Manager - Recovery Manager.In that recovery manager,click on next.Its shows the Software reinstallation page.Click on next button two times.Its shows the software lists.Select the webcam software and click on next button.After reinstallation completed , u restart laptop and check it.
If ur laptop have windows XP operating system then u uninstall the webcam software through Add/Remove program and restart it.After restarting ,Reinstall the web cam software and check it. If u doesnt have webcam drivers then u go for nearest service centre and install it.

Thanks

install your drivers brunella then do a windows update ignor when pop comes up says cant do it with the continue button hit continue on the driver install and do windows update

windows vista doesnt like the older equipment for some reason it doesnt work well with some new hardware just to let you know vista is still in its infancy stage getting better as its source and updates go along

Acer orbi cam not working


If you're runing Vista, there is an issue with Orbi cam. It won't work on Acer 5000 series machines. Here's a link that may help. Read what it says and follow the directions. I know it says the drivers are for an Acer 9300, but it won't hurt your machine to try them, they just simply won't work.

If you're running XP you will need to reinstall the drivers. since you don't have the disc, try driverguide.com.

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

How can I record video with the orbi-cam?


You need software (Nero?) that is capable of storing a video stream to hard drive. Within the software should be a selection for the orbi-cam
