    I also have an aspire 5100 series Acer laptop. My orbicam used to work fine, then it was kind of working once in a while, but now it doesn't work at all. I reinstalled and tried restoring the drivers. no luck. it is not recognized in the device manger either and when I try to open up the camera from the folder (livecam.exe) it says "sorry, you have no video capture software". I have also noticed that the light that tell you that the camera is on doesn't come on (but considering the camera isn't in the device manager, I'm not too surprised) o, and I'm running on Windows XP, not vista

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

Is it recognised in device manager ?
If it is,
There are 3 type of orbicam for Aspire 5100.
Try to install the applications for orbicam one by one.
If installing application don't work, Try to reload the windows using disk or using alt+F10.
Hope it help.

Where can i get driver updates for my aspire 5100 "orbicam"


If you want driver updates go toooooo

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html


i have the same problem with drivers i can't ever update the drivers on my ATI graphics card on the actual ATI site.

you have to go to that site, and select your acer aspire model from a dropdown list.

(sometimes the number is not exactly the same but get the closest one posible, eg. have an aspire 1682, but the drivers for it are listed under aspire 1680. as a guide make sure the second last digit is equal to the digit of yours.)
