Re: orbicam and skype

Try reinstalling the drivers. Skype regularly has updates, and these, along with windows updates, are great at messing up once working hardware. Unistall the device and any software, then re-install it. This normally works.

Not working

when you use cam in skype that time confirm your self that your not log in yahoomessenger, msn or other video chat. Becose if your cam working in any other messenger or site that time you can access your cam in skype. On that moment Skype cam window show you grey color. And another reason is Skype looking for little bit good speed net connection. If your net little bit slow then also you find your cam window is Grey. Just follow the way, hope you het success.

My orbicam is not working

You should go online and download the updated Driver for the orbicam (google on orbicam). Reinstall it, restart the computer, and then try the cam again. There may be something in Skype that helps config your cam.

Acer orbicam

The obvious thing is to upgrade the driver.. Have you tried that? Also when you say windows are searching..? I assume you mean you have reported the problem to Microsoft? If you have installed some new software, it may be caused by that.. Also you might try to fall back to an earlier restore point. That is always an option. It does seem as if the driver is fine, otherwise you would not be able to use it on Skype, which means it's probably related to Windows. I'd upgrade the driver or fallback to a previous restore point via Windows.. Let me know if you need further explanation..
