Question about Acer Aspire 5101WLMi Notebook
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 126.96.36.199
These can be found here under the MS Windows Vista drop down menu:
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 188.8.131.52
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

What I would first recommend doing is reinstalling the driver for your camera. The driver is basically what allows your computer and web cam to connect to each other.

After downloading that file , run it and install it...that should take care of your issue!

keep turning it then clicking the camera start up button, it will start again, i have to do this everytime, but not much use when using MSN, though. as it will say the camera is in use, stupid camera and software this is but only solution is to buy a cheap web cam

I suspect this is installation of the software problem. Please reinstall patiently and look that no other programmes are running..
