You will need to go to the Acer website to download the driver for your OrbiCam. The following link will take you to the site:

click-here

Once you click on the link the webpage will open up and ask you to choose your laptop. You will highlight Notebook, then Aspire, then your model # 5570. A list of all of your drivers will then appear on the page. You will scroll down to the list of Camera drivers, choose the correct manufacturer of your OrbiCam, and then click on the Download icon. The webpage will then allow you to download the file.

The file will be packed in the .zip format. If you don't already have a utility to unpack the archive you can go to this website:

http://www.7-zip.org/

The 7zip file is a free file. Download the file to a location that is easy for you to get back to. Saving it to your Desktop can make it easy to work with. When the download is finished just double click on the icon, and the program will automatically install itself.

Obi cam wont work in messenger


If you see a black screen when broadcasting your webcam:
There may not be enough light in the room. If so, illuminate the room appropriately.
Your camera may not be functioning properly. Try your camera with the manufacturer's software.
The correct camera may not be selected by Yahoo! Messenger. To change your camera source:
1. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Start My Webcam."
2. Click the "Messenger" menu in Yahoo! Messenger and select "Preferences."
3. Click the "Webcam" category.
4. Click the "Camera Source" button.
5. Click the pull-down menu and select the desired camera.
6. Click the "OK" button.
If you see a black screen when viewing a friend's webcam:
Check the status message at the bottom of your viewer window. If it says "Stopped," the person broadcasting has stopped broadcasting images. Ask the person to resume broadcasting and try viewing again.
If the person is in fact broadcasting and you still see a black screen in your viewer, ask them to check their camera and take the webcam compatibility test.
