Acer OrbiCam keeps crashing (Aspire 5570)

I have a problem of which my computer just instantly crashes while I work. I don't actually use my camera at all but it crashes anyhow. I tried to look for solutions and stumbled upon It leads me to download a new driver but when I went through to the device manager, it listed that my acer orbicam is a Logitech model and was not Bison or the other one. So I'm stuck... Thanks.

Model5742 web cam not working

The Acer OrbiCam is a built-in 1.3 megapixel webcam mounted at the top of certain Acer laptops. The webcam can record video clips and integrate with instant messaging software. If you are trying to use your Acer OrbiCam but it won't connect, the driver--a small software file that tells the webcam what to do--may be outdated. Acer provides webcam driver update pages for the Aspire 9300 and Aspire 5570 versions.

1.Go to the Acer 5570 or Acer 9300 Driver Download page (see Resources).
2.Click "MS Windows XP" or "MS Windows Vista" on the drop-down menu, depending on your operating system.
3.Select "Acer OrbiCam Bison Driver" from the menu.
4.Click "Save File > OK" and wait for it to download.
5.Double-click on the downloaded setup files to install the driver.
6.Go back to the Acer Downloads page, and select "Acer OrbiCam Driver Bison Utility" from the drop-down menu.
7.Click on "Save File > OK" and wait for it to download. Double-click on the downloaded setup files to install the driver.
8.Restart the computer.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya

Install aspire 5570\Acer OrbiCam

You will need to go to the Acer website to download the driver for your OrbiCam. The following link will take you to the site:


Once you click on the link the webpage will open up and ask you to choose your laptop. You will highlight Notebook, then Aspire, then your model # 5570. A list of all of your drivers will then appear on the page. You will scroll down to the list of Camera drivers, choose the correct manufacturer of your OrbiCam, and then click on the Download icon. The webpage will then allow you to download the file.

The file will be packed in the .zip format. If you don't already have a utility to unpack the archive you can go to this website:

The 7zip file is a free file. Download the file to a location that is easy for you to get back to. Saving it to your Desktop can make it easy to work with. When the download is finished just double click on the icon, and the program will automatically install itself.

Cannot detect the acer orbicam built in webcam on my laptop acer aspire 5570

1. Check the device manager to see if there is a conflict.
2. Reinstall the driver
3. Special Note: Acer actually put 3 different brands of cameras in that model. So, if the laptop or manual doesn't tell you which one was installed in your particular machine, you may need to install each of the three drivers one at a time to see which one registers and gets the camera working.
4. Just in case you were interested as I would be... Acer does not consider this laptop to be Windows 7 ready.

Good luck and Merry Christmas.
