Hi I have just bought an Acer 5103 wlmi laptop. the orbicam stopped working the day I got it. I have searched everywhere for a fix. Uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it. I get the web cam up but without all its functions. Its a turion processor..Any help would be appreciated. I see this has happened alot reading all the forums.
Hi and thanks for replying. Originally it said orbicam has stopped working, then I lost the icon, went into device manager and got that back by clicking on the application. But it only has the camera function, and delete you can't do anything else with it.
I am using Vista home premium.

First, does the modem show up in the device manager (without an exclamation mark or an "x". In other words, does the computer see the card and is it not reporting any problems. Second, do you see the wireless connection when you go into My Network Places and Network Connections? Third, does the wireless connection icon appear in the system tray?

I believe there's a common problem but since you did not provide many details the only suggestion I have is for you to read through the following post which is related with orbicam stopped working on acers (I hope and believe it will give you some answers) reply with more details if you need further assistance.
join the club, this is far too common an email to Acer i think.
What works for me is if you open up the camera software, then turn the camera to face the rear of the laptop (Take care to turn it the right way), then keep clicking the button to open the cam and eventually it will come on.
