That happens to me sometimes with other programs. sometimes when you exit the camera, it doesnt completely exit. you have go to TASK MANAGER, then applications, there you can completely stop the application, and it wil open for you.

Orbicam is in use by another application


Try using an application called SplitCam, which allows you to share the webcam across applications.

I use acer aspire 5100 but my orbicam is not working


Try reinstalling the Acer Orbicam drivers from http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_5100.html .
As you don't say what operating system (XP or Vista) you are using I can't give you a more precise link.
If you use XP, try the "Bison" driver.
If you use Vista, there are three drivers (Suyin, Logitech and Bison). One of them is the right one, I don't know which one, as it depends on what exact camera is in your computer. But simply try installing one at a time, until you hit the right one.
