    Hey, I have the exact same problem only it's on an Acer 7220. Stupid question: once the driver is uninstalled, how do I reinstall it? Do they have it over at Acer website?

There is a utility bar that you can install that lets you change the default application folder:

** 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 - 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

This isn't a solution but I've gone through all the steps in addressing the issue and none have worked: disabling and enabling the driver, uninstalling and reinstalling the webcam, and even recovering the laptop to another date. All are unsuccessful in fixing the webcam's software. However, the webcam can be accessed through the C: drive (if it's an acer 5520 model, go to Computer, Acer C:, "Windows", "Bison C07", "LiveCa07", "Devices", and then "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam"). In doing so, the webcam opens up but no files exist to save the feed or to take pictures. This means the software is corrupt.

I've gotten my Acer (Aspire 5520-5912) through Circuit City and this is the second laptop to have its webcam application randomly stop working. It's obviously a software issue possibly with acer's feeble attempt at editing Bison's software to be compatible with acer's computers.

All there is to do is send it into Acer (if your computer is still under its manufacturer's warranty) and have them mess with the computer but it'll more than likely be a pain to do so. I'd suggest getting an external webcam that simply plugs into the computer.

Open control panel look in scanners and cameras if the camera is listed in there click on it - if it opens a preview picture and works then either you have the wrong software - it is corrupted or there is a conflict.
