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

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.

The Download: http://www.acer.com.sg/support/drivers.asp?product_type_=Acer+Notebook&product_name_=Acer+Aspire+5670+Series+&category_=Windows+XP+Drivers

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

Dear Fraz13
I suspect this is installation of the software problem. Please reinstall patiently and look that no other programmes are running..

Model5742 web cam not working


The Acer OrbiCam is a built-in 1.3 megapixel webcam mounted at the top of certain Acer laptops. The webcam can record video clips and integrate with instant messaging software. If you are trying to use your Acer OrbiCam but it won't connect, the driver--a small software file that tells the webcam what to do--may be outdated. Acer provides webcam driver update pages for the Aspire 9300 and Aspire 5570 versions.

1.Go to the Acer 5570 or Acer 9300 Driver Download page (see Resources).
2.Click "MS Windows XP" or "MS Windows Vista" on the drop-down menu, depending on your operating system.
3.Select "Acer OrbiCam Bison Driver" from the menu.
4.Click "Save File > OK" and wait for it to download.
5.Double-click on the downloaded setup files to install the driver.
6.Go back to the Acer Downloads page, and select "Acer OrbiCam Driver Bison Utility 1.0.0.13" from the drop-down menu.
7.Click on "Save File > OK" and wait for it to download. Double-click on the downloaded setup files to install the driver.
8.Restart the computer.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya

Acer orbicam


download the software from www.acerpanam.com.
you need 2 things.
1. orbicam driver (if you can see your orbicam in device manager, you don't need to install driver again).
2. orbicam application, there are 3 kind of orbicam (suyin, bison and logitech), I don't know what is yours. you need to try 1 by 1.
