My web camera on acer aspire 5050 will not work i tried to reinstall drivers but still having problems please help


Do you see it in device manager?
If you do, that means that the driver for it has been installed successfully,but now you need a software to run it.
I can recommend YAWCAM, it is a freeware software, and works just fine with a lot of cameras

Acer orbi cam not working


Checked if your orbicam is in device manager (under imaging device),
if it still there, you might have wrong orbicam application installed. try to download the orbicam application, there are 3 type of orbicam for Aspire 5050 (suyin, bison and logitech). try to installed one by one.
or if you can try to reload the whole windows, using alt+f10 during boot.

Microphone trouble on 5050


assuming that the mic itself isnt faulty, go to the right side of your taskbar and right click on the grey spekaer, not the red one and click on recording devices. When the window pops up make sure the mic realtek HD audio has a green tick and not the line in icon, next click properties and check the settings,you can also configure the mic from this window.
