Try downloading YAWCAM, it is a freeware software for web cams. The other thing you can do is to check the drivers for your web cam in the computer management

Acer orbi cam


you probably havent uninstalled it cos it's built in and on the next reboot it would have been found and the driver installed, but if you need the driver, go here and go down to vista and select Logitech Orbicam, or if you mean the camera will not come on when you click the opening software (as many 100's also have the same problem), try this its worked for most people.

Double click the cam opening software, then turn the camera (if you have a 225 Degree swivel one) to face the rear of the lid, then turn it back again, then keep clicking the software that is supposed to open it until it connects.

Acer orbicam - when I try to start up orbicam it says it is being used by another application and that I should close that application and then open oribicam. I have no idea how to find out what...


it is not being used, this is a common fault of the Orbicam, with no answers or newer drivers from Acer, the belo works for me as i have the same problem along with many others.

open up the cam software as normal, then turn your camera to face the back of your notebook, turn it back again and keep clicking the camera start button and eventually it will come on.

Acer 5610 orbicam


it seems to be an inherrent fault with this model, this sometimes works though.

swivel the camera around to face the rear of the notebook (making sure you turn it the right way) and turn it back again, now try to run the camera again, keep clicking the icon to start the cam and eventually it comes on.

My orbicam


Hi Fino
There is no guarantee that the camera is working properly.
Is the setting done by you for the screensaver to sync it to your webcam 'coz that might be a temporarirly saved one.
Look for the .exe files of the webcam software in your program files .
And then search using search utility for windows for *.exe files and hope you find orbicam files in the results.
If not then the orbicam software is not properly installed.
So reinstall it.

Waiting for your appreciation.

Orbicam?


because the cam is built in its not as versatile as a mobile cam, but you can turn the cam over 225 degrees to film from the back of the notebook. If using Vista, open the cam software click the right arrow next to record video button and set your personal settings, click record and then any recording will be saved to my videos. You then can import it into windows movie maker and then add any effects to your movie. if you have XP or XP media centre you can use windows movie maker2 and make your video from within the programme itself using the orbicam, without using the orbicam software.
