Acer OrbCam Application has stopped working a problem caused the program working correctly.Pleas help me solve this problem


Assuming it has face track capabilities( like the logitech orbit webcam) it could be a mechanical problem such as internal track miss alignment of servo motor failure or your software has become corrupted. Let's concentrate on the latter. Un-install cam software completely from comp. Create a new folder on your desktop and name it orbcamdrivers. Go to acer's website and navigate to the drivers/downloads>find your model/available downloads/download your new software to the newly created folder on your desktop-orbcamdrivers. At this make sure the webcam is disconnected from the comp. Power down your computer. Hookup the cam at this point and power on comp. Windows will detect new hardware and ask for manufacturers install cd or location. Direct the wizard to your new software and click OK. Follow the rest of the instructions.

If you have a grey rectangle where ur cam should be. Especially after a fresh install plus all the drivers. although Then here's your solution :)

Go into device manager and delete the USB controller. Then reboot. When it says new hardware found let it automatically install it. Et voila, working cam :)
