** 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.

If that does not work then do this:

Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering Technology then Acer E-Recovery - The look at the bottom and you will
"Backup", "Burn disk" and Restore" choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say
extracting) - once extracted - click Install or Guides and Manuals if needing Orbicam instructions - click Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the
right side of the screen, then look for Bison driver or (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) you have then click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions. Then repeat steps above and instead of driver choose Bison (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) Utility

Is this a windows error message or it is your webcam software? If this is a windows error message the best ay to fix it is to recover your computer to an earlier date by running the system restore utility in the systems tool folder. if its your webcam software i would uninstall it and re-install it back again. please advice.

Either way you're better off wipe and reload everything.

The machine stops kneading in the middle of the program


Even Replacement May Not Help for Long.
After my six month old CBK200 had the same stop and start malfunction I was sent a brand new replacement by the company. Three months later the new unit started doing the same thing. I am putting up with it for now, but as soon as I have a little more time, I will go back to the authorized repair depot and request another replacement and hope for the best.

The connection between the laptop's internal wireless antenna and its wireless card may been disconnected. Best to take it in to a computer shop for fixing. If you want to fix it, open the PCI-E cover on the bottom of the laptop, then reconnect the antenna wire. If that doesn't work, get it serviced.
