Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook

2 Answers

Aspire 5101 I'm currently having problems with my Orbicam, the little light does not come on and anytime I try to click on the icon on the desktop my PC shuts down. The notebook is not even a year old, but I know that there are frequent updates when I shut down sometimes. Can you help please?

To answer this question i have to ask a few first. Do you know what operating system that your oribcam requires ? and what os are you running on your aspire ? If you can answer these questions for me I am more than willing to follow up on this for you. I will give you specific details on how to fix this problem. When you comment please include your ram or memory size and speed. Plus i will need to know the processor that you are using.

Install aspire 5570\Acer OrbiCam


You will need to go to the Acer website to download the driver for your OrbiCam. The following link will take you to the site:

click-here

Once you click on the link the webpage will open up and ask you to choose your laptop. You will highlight Notebook, then Aspire, then your model # 5570. A list of all of your drivers will then appear on the page. You will scroll down to the list of Camera drivers, choose the correct manufacturer of your OrbiCam, and then click on the Download icon. The webpage will then allow you to download the file.

The file will be packed in the .zip format. If you don't already have a utility to unpack the archive you can go to this website:

http://www.7-zip.org/

The 7zip file is a free file. Download the file to a location that is easy for you to get back to. Saving it to your Desktop can make it easy to work with. When the download is finished just double click on the icon, and the program will automatically install itself.

My orbicam doesn't come on how do i get to that info ? I don't even have an icon for it.


First we will create the new folder where the pictures will be moved to:
1. Click on the Start button.
2. Click on Computer
3. Double-click on the C drive
4. Double-click on Users
5. Double-click on your user name
6. Double-click on Desktop.
7. Once you are in the Desktop, right-click on a blank white area (not on an icon) then select Create > New Folder.
8. Call the folder "Picture Backup" or any other significant name. (Do not close the windows since we will need it later) in step 11
Now we will move the pictures from the old folder to the new one:
9. Click on the START button then click on Pictures
10. Click on one picture and then go to Edit > Select All. This will highlight all the files in this folder.
11. Right-click on one of the selected files then select Cut
12. Go back to the folder we created in step 7 and
13. Right-click and paste the contents we Cut from the Pictures folder.
Now, restart your computer and try the OrbiCam application again. This should allow your OrbiCam application to work again.

Acer 5610 orbicam


it seems to be an inherrent fault with this model, this sometimes works though.

swivel the camera around to face the rear of the notebook (making sure you turn it the right way) and turn it back again, now try to run the camera again, keep clicking the icon to start the cam and eventually it comes on.
