    I have a similar problem with my Acer Aspire 3100 webcam, I've tried every available driver for this series but still no luck. I recently had to format my laptop.. before the camera was working fine. Now all I get is a gray or white box whenever I click on the "acer orbicam" in my computer! I badly need help. Here are the drivers and versions I have tried: Acer Orbicam Logitech 10.4.0.1319, bison_v5.0.0.8c, AcerOrbiCam(Bison)_v1.0.0.19, Bison_CCD_5_0_0_10f WEBCAM, AcerOrbiCam_v1.0.11(suyin). And everytime I had to unistall and reinstall and restart my computer, but nothing is working..! I'm running on XP SP2 by the way. Thanks Alot!

If you upgraded to vista it's a different driver, you need to find out if you have a bison or logitech http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_3690.html

WEB CAM OF LENOVO Y510 IS nt working in skype


Try pressing the "Fn" and "esc" buttons on the keyboard both at the same time to turn the camera on or off. It may work or may not, but that is the way it is supposed to work. There have been a lot of problems with this web cam and yahoo messenger. The only other thing I can suggest is to contact Lenovo and see if they might have another driver that can resolve this.
