** 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

Sometimes the acer orbicam software will stop working if you have pictures saved in the "my pictures" folder.

Yes this is very weird, but I have seen it happen.

AFAIK Acer aspire 5100 using Bison Webcam.

Uninstall your old webcam driver, download new driver from here :

Reboot your computer for the changes to take effect.

Ive found an interesting discussion about the orbicam at a website called the Acer Guy.

I am going to assume you are on Windows Vists unless I am otherwise mistaken. Click here to read what the site has to say and for possible suggestions on where to find the drivers for it.

Orbicam stopped working


iF YOU HAVE PICTURES SAVED IN "PICTURES" FILE CREATE A NEW FILE IN DOCUMENTS OF YOUR OWN AND MOVE THE PICS TO THIS. I DID THIS AND THE ORBI CAM WILL WORK. WHEN AUTO SAVING PICTURES ALWAYS PUT THEM INTO THE NEW FILE YOU CREATED.

Checked if your orbicam is in device manager (under imaging device),
if it still there, you might have wrong orbicam application installed. try to download the orbicam application, there are 3 type of orbicam for Aspire 5050 (suyin, bison and logitech). try to installed one by one.
or if you can try to reload the whole windows, using alt+f10 during boot.
