Orbi cam not working when i open my cam


Orbi cam doesn't work with Vista in several of the Acer models, this is a common problem. I did however find a possible solution. Follow the link below, read it and the directions, then follow the link on the page for the drivers. I realize that it reads that it's for an Acer 9300, however downloading and trying the drivers will not hurt your system, it simply will not work, which is exactly where you are right now. You can always revert back to the old drivers. Let me know how this works out so I can advise others.

Acer orbi cam not working


If you're runing Vista, there is an issue with Orbi cam. It won't work on Acer 5000 series machines. Here's a link that may help. Read what it says and follow the directions. I know it says the drivers are for an Acer 9300, but it won't hurt your machine to try them, they just simply won't work.

If you're running XP you will need to reinstall the drivers. since you don't have the disc, try driverguide.com.

Acer orbi cam


Hmm well here are the directions to follow if you are using XP (as you mentioned at the end of your problem) it may also work when used with vista.

  1. Press ‘Alt + F10' to start eRecovery Management.
  2. Enter default password of 6 zero's. Example: 000000
    (Note: if this default password does not work, then a different password has taken its place. Acer is not responsible for any forgotten or misplaced passwords.)
  3. Select ‘Recovery Actions' and click ‘Next'
  4. Select ‘Reinstall Applications/drivers' and click ‘Next'
  5. On the left hand side of the newly opened window select the following: Windows XP
    ? Driver
    ?Camera
  6. On the right side of the same window, click ‘Install Camera Driver Now'
  7. The unit will reboot after the installation is complete.
Good Luck and dont forget to rate me!!
