Acer Aspire 5600's Orbicam

Alright, well i've got a spanish Acer Aspire 5600 laptop with a built-in Orbicam. 98% of the times i try to use the webcam (just by opening the program or through AIM, MSN, ect) i get a message saying "la cámara está en uso en otra aplicación." meaning "the camera is in use in another program." unfortunately for me, no other programs are running. and the times when it works and get this message seem to be completely random.
anyone have any suggestions?

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use your Acer OrbiCam but it won't connect, the driver--a small software file that tells the webcam what to do--may be outdated.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's built in webcam


Take your laptop to your local computer repair shop, as it will take too long to explain a solution.
Good Luck.
