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 :)

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

Acer aspire 5630 orbicam is not working


From another user:
"open up the cam software as normal, then turn your camera to face the back of your notebook, turn it back again and keep clicking the camera start button and eventually it will come on."

This worked for me. It is the only thing that has worked!

If you uninstalled via device manager:-

Unplug Orbicam

Right Click My Computer >> Properties >> Hardware >> Device Manager

Plug in Orbicam

Click the top one in the list (Your Computer name)

Click Scan for hardware changes (small icon at top of device manager next to help button

Windows redetects any new hardware , hopefully it should find the camera , thenn you are prompted for device drivers :- Select automatically and see if it finds it

If not , download the drivers you mentioned above , then specify where the drivers are in the hardware wizard and it should reinstall everything then orbicam should work again

Acer orbicam


There are two software entities involved – the camera Drivers and the OrbiCam application itself – and BOTH need replacing/updating to fix this problem.
The new driver and a new version of webcam application (below) seem to fix the issue.
The correct files to download are:
Acer Orbicam driver (Bison)
Acer Orbicam Bison utility 1.0.0.13

These can be found here under the MS Windows Vista drop down menu:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_9300.html
In order to fix the problem, you must download and install them both to make the Orbicam work correctly.

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IN THE SAME ORDER:
1. remove the installed OrbiCam application and reboot if required;
2. install the new driver (preferably with the “driver update” wizard from Device Manager)
3. update the Orbicam application 1.0.0.13

After this, the webcam should function properly, even if the original Orbicam icon disappears.
To check everything is working OK run LiveCa07.exe or BisonM07.exe that are located in the c:\windows\bisonxxx\ folder or simply run Messenger

The orbicam will not work on my aspire 5052AWXMi - I am using Vista. If you open up the orbicam is just says no camera detected. I have looked to update the driver, removed and re-installed etc, but no...


Is the driver fits on Vista? If yes, try this one, remove the usb cable of your orbicam from the pc and then unstall the software and then restart the pc and then reinstall the software [note: do not plug the usb unless it ask you or do not plug it untill the installation finish. after that plugin the usb cord and wait untill the driver install by your pc automatically. Hope it help!
