Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
Camera turns on , i can see, then turns off
** 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

If you want driver updates go toooooo
i have the same problem with drivers i can't ever update the drivers on my ATI graphics card on the actual ATI site.
you have to go to that site, and select your acer aspire model from a dropdown list.
(sometimes the number is not exactly the same but get the closest one posible, eg. have an aspire 1682, but the drivers for it are listed under aspire 1680. as a guide make sure the second last digit is equal to the digit of yours.)
