Acer OrbiCam is not recognized on my Acer Aspire 5610 series laptop


Sounds like the original program got corrupted. When was the last time you ran disc defrag? Anyway, to fix, for some odd reason, moving all your pictures to a new file, leaving your picture file empty, may fixya.. If that doesn't work, reinstall the original Orbicam program as follows: first go to control panel, then check out device manager to see if you have any nasty big checks. If "imaging devices: has a big check, try reinstalling the driver there. If that doesn't fixya, click on Start, then Acer Empowering Technology, then Acer E-Recovery, and choose Restore Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab. It will extract; then click Install for Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - Camera or CCD - on the right side of the screen for your model which you saw in device manager. Please let me know if that doesnt do the trick.

The Acer webcam (a Logitech) should work. You may have purchased el cheapo Acers (really reprehensible of Acer) loaded with Vista, but not 2 MB memory or even an M chip instead of a dual-core. If so, unfortunately, you are going to be plagued by problems of all sorts, as most agree that Vista's power-hungry maw demands this much power to run smoothly. however, you may be able to fix you webcam by moving all of your pictures to a new file---it usually works, heavens knows why. If that doesn't work, try reinstalling the webcam sofware as follows: (actually, first go to control panel, then check out device manager to see if you have any nasty big checks. If "imaging devices" has a big check, try reinstalling the driver there. If that doesn't fixya, click on Start, thten Acer Empowering Technology, then Acer E-Recovery, and choose Restore Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab. It will extract; then click Install for Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - Camera or CCD - on the right side of the screen for your model which you saw in device manager. Please let me know if that doesnt do the trick.
