Starting over on my hardrive, how to get my webcam going?

I have an acer aspire 5100, recently I wiped out my hardrive and started fresh but I had to re download orbitech webcam, I have a built in camera and I don't know how to set it up. After downloading, It comes up and says it doesn't detect a camera.
I downloaded a driver but don't know how to connect it all together? What do I do? :(

I have an Acer 5100 and i want to restore computer


Generally Acer recovery start with ALT+F10.
As soon as you restart the computer, hold down the Alt key using your left hand and start tapping F10 key using your right hand. Acer recovery would be started. Now, follow the on screen instructions.

My Acer aspire 5100


If you are able, when the pc is booting up keep pressing F8, this will take you to safe mode and not allow the graphics driver to run. When in the safe mode options, select either Last known good configuration or start windows in safe mode. Last known good configuration should find the last good system settings, when it reboots. Start windows in safe mode allows you to go into windows using the administartor account, and then you should select system restore and restore back to the day before or just before you updated the graphics driver.
