    I have an acer aspire 5100 Orbi web cam built in. This is the 3rd time it has quit working. First time sent it back they fixed it, 2nd time i wiped out hard drive and it started working again. I have sent it back this time had it back about a month and it worked until some time this past week. I tried to use it today got the same message I got before that windows would close the program cause orbiwebcam had quit working. Something about a solution well thats the same thing I got before. What do I do now?

It would help to know what software it does not work with. The laptops with an orbi camera has a key to press to start the camera on the regular keyboard. If you are using Yahoo or MSN messenger, it will automatically find the camera when you select their video option. The same is true if you want to use SKYPE VOIP. I did not know the Orbi camera came on any US Aspire notebooks. Originally, they were only available in the Asian market. Although you will see reference to them in the standard ACER PDF user manual.

Acer orbi cam not working

Wow..i've posted many answers to the Orbi Cam...

I will repost the urls for you...Being an Acer owner, I know how frustrating it is getting this camera to work.

First of all, uninstall any drivers you currently have for that orbi cam.
Secondly, visit this site and install

Camera Bison Driver ver. 5.0

Once you have downloaded that specific driver, extract it, and reboot. Let me know if this works for you ...if not we can install the Orbi Cam driver as well, from the same site..

Good Luck
