Re: camera

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

My webcam doesn't work

Are you using the software the laptop came preinstalled or is this an add-on camera that you installed.
Uninstall the software, delete the hardware in device manager. Go to the mfg site and download the correct software your your model. Reboot the machine and install the software before activating the camera. When the camera is turned on, Windows will detect new hardware and install the driver. You chould be able to go to Windows Explorer and see the camera image there!

Your camera will go from "hardly working" to working hard!
