Question about Acer Aspire 5630 Notebook

3 Answers

Orbicam Hi, there I have an Acer Aspire 5630-6288 w/orbicam 1.3 mega. When I first purchased this past October I was able to take pictures. Yet, recently I have been experiencing problems. Where there should be a picture there is just a greyish screen. Has anyone else had this happen? If so what can be done to fix? Thanks Dee

Re: Orbicam

** 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

My Acer Orbicam is no longer working. But in the past it worked well. I had taken some pictures with it. I then reduced the pictures to 3 but yet it no longer works?


You just need to remove and reinstall the drivers for webcam.

1) Go to Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programmes
2) Select the application related to OrbiCam in the list and press remove button
3) Download the latest drivers from manufactures web site and install it.

Been there. You need the driver in the Acer Site. Note !! you need the Acer Orbicam WHQL Driver as well as the Acer Orbicam Utility. The Orbicam webcam is a USB device. Pls follow this steps in sequence.
1. Install ChipSet/Lan Support.
2. Install Acer Orbicam WHQL Driver
3. Install Acer Orbicam Utility.

Acer oribicam not working

you should be able to get the drivers and application from acer.
select notebook, aspire 5100, and scroll down to acer orbicam

you will need to go into the control panel, system, device manager, and check under imaging for acer orbicam, double click it and it should tell you the manufacturer (bison, logitech, suyin)

grab the appropriate driver and camera applications

remove the installed orbicam application via add/remove programs and reboot if necessary prior to installing the new drivers and application.

if this doesn't fix the issue, please post a follwup and i will see what i can find out.

hope this helps,

There are two types of driver for the orbicam, Bison and Logitech, so ensure you have the correct one installed, especially if you are running Vista as it's a different driver again, and it's installed a seperate peice of hardware although it's built into the notebook. There are no listing for 5600 drivers so try 5610 they should be the same
