    Have you tried going into device manager and uninstalling it? Reinstallations usually fix problems like this.

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

Orbicam


major problem with this camer on acers, try this it works for most people, although only if it's the 225 degree rotating camera:-

open the camera software programme as if you were activating the camera, turn the camera to face the back, then back to the front again, now keep clicking the camera acivation icon until it will finally attach itself to the software again and the green light should come on.

Lost webcam driver


you can download the driver (webcam) from www.acerpanam.com

FYI, if you can't find the driver under AS 3680, try AS 5570 or AS 5570z

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.
