    I have an Acer Aspire 5100. I reformatted, installed windows xp, and installed all of Acer Empowering Software, Drivers, Utilities, which are all working without any problems. I've installed the Bison driver for my orbi cam--it's installed, and showing up in my device manager without problems. But when I click on the Cam itself, it opens the cam screen, but doesn't show anything on the screen....
    I've uninstalled it numerouse times to no avail...what could I be doing wrong..

    Thank You

Is it possible that you rotated the camera past its 225 degree maximum and damaged it? Just curious. There are several other camera types installed on the same model. It might be an idea to verify that. Also XP or Vista drivers ? Just a few questions. Best

No...the cam wasn't rotated past 225...it did work until i formatted to xp and removed factory settings from my acer.
I've looked on numerous sites pertaining to this cam, and found that many have the same problem, and gets fixed when you upgrade to Vista...personally...I won't until the bugs are worked out. However, the cam won't work....

I do have a MSI cam that does work, and it's quite unfortunate that Acer has to many peripherals that don't have drivers, or the drivers don't work ...I have installed the " Bison" driver, to no avail...I will know better than to purchase an Acer in the future...
So to Acer 5 thumbs down

Same problem, bluetooth not working


Hello sushma_visha,

Sadly, the Acer Aspire 5100 notebook computer only has an 'optional' bluetooth module. However, a bluetooth usb adapter can be installed to add bluetooth functionality. Here is a link to the Acer Aspire 5100 specifications web page. As you can see, bluetooth is not mentioned in the specifications: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/notebook/0000/Acer/Aspire5100/Aspire5100sp2.shtml

Have a great day,

Acer notebook usb not recognized


Sounds like a hardware issue. I would guess that there is a bad connection between the usb's and the motherboard. If you are comfortable dismanteling the laptop and re-soldering the usb's than give that a try, but I would recomend you give it to a pro.
Here is a link that explains the process. http://www.insidemylaptop.com/taking-apart-acer-aspire-5100-laptop/
