The Acer OrbiCam is a built-in 1.3 megapixel webcam mounted at the top of certain Acer laptops. The webcam can record video clips and integrate with instant messaging software. If you are trying to use your Acer OrbiCam but it won't connect, the driver--a small software file that tells the webcam what to do--may be outdated. Acer provides webcam driver update pages for the Aspire 9300 and Aspire 5570 versions.
1.Go to the Acer 5570 or Acer 9300 Driver Download page (see Resources). 2.Click "MS Windows XP" or "MS Windows Vista" on the drop-down menu, depending on your operating system. 3.Select "Acer OrbiCam Bison Driver" from the menu. 4.Click "Save File > OK" and wait for it to download. 5.Double-click on the downloaded setup files to install the driver. 6.Go back to the Acer Downloads page, and select "Acer OrbiCam Driver Bison Utility 188.8.131.52" from the drop-down menu. 7.Click on "Save File > OK" and wait for it to download. Double-click on the downloaded setup files to install the driver. 8.Restart the computer.

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.
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.
