    I'm using window vista, the webcam is in the Device Manager, no red "x" or a yellow question mark. Faced the same problem few months ago, i used system restore to solve the problem. Thank you.

The trouble can be caused by many things - software installation and deinstallation,driver problem or hardware failure (cable, camera itself).
If you are using Windows - can you see the camera in the Device Manager?
(To get there, right-click on My Computer, choose Manage. Look in Imaging Devices)
Do you see a red "x" or a yellow question mark?

A red "x" tells you that the Operating System doesn't know this device at all, a yellow question mark usually indicates a driver problem.

If this did not solve your problem, just come back here and leave a post with your findings. It would also be helpful to know what Operating System you are using and the model of your camera.

Let me know - I'm happy to help!

My orbicam is not working


You should go online and download the updated Driver for the orbicam (google on orbicam). Reinstall it, restart the computer, and then try the cam again. There may be something in Skype that helps config your cam.

Orbicam freezing in Skype


1. Check if your computer has enough memory available. Open task manager, select performance tab. Check the green bar on the bottom then copare memory usage to the total of your Physical memory. If your usage is greater then physical memory then upgrade memory on your laptop.
2. Unistall your Skype application and reinstall it. Do the same for your Webcam.

Good luck.

Acer orbicam


There are two software entities involved – the camera Drivers and the OrbiCam application itself – and BOTH need replacing/updating to fix this problem.
The new driver and a new version of webcam application (below) seem to fix the issue.
The correct files to download are:
Acer Orbicam driver (Bison)
Acer Orbicam Bison utility 1.0.0.13

These can be found here under the MS Windows Vista drop down menu:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_9300.html
In order to fix the problem, you must download and install them both to make the Orbicam work correctly.

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IN THE SAME ORDER:
1. remove the installed OrbiCam application and reboot if required;
2. install the new driver (preferably with the “driver update” wizard from Device Manager)
3. update the Orbicam application 1.0.0.13

After this, the webcam should function properly, even if the original Orbicam icon disappears.
To check everything is working OK run LiveCa07.exe or BisonM07.exe that are located in the c:\windows\bisonxxx\ folder or simply run Messenger

Orbicam and skype


Try reinstalling the drivers. Skype regularly has updates, and these, along with windows updates, are great at messing up once working hardware. Unistall the device and any software, then re-install it. This normally works.
