Your Acer has all of your programs saved and accessible--in a hidden partition on your hard drive. you can find your manual by clicking on start, then all programs, then acer system.

But to fixya, first try making a new folder and moving all of your pictures to it, leaving your pictures file empty. Bizarre, but that can work, heavens knows why. Or, go to control panel, then check out device manager to see if you have any nasty big checks. If imaging devices has a big check, try reinstalling the driver there. If that doesn't fixya, click on Start, then Acer Empowering Technology, then Acer E-Recovery,and choose Restore Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab. (that's where you get access to reinstall any of your programs) It will extract; then click Install for Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - Camera or CCD - on the right side of the screen for your model which you saw in device manager. Please let me know if that doesnt do the trick.

Ive found an interesting discussion about the orbicam at a website called the Acer Guy.

I am going to assume you are on Windows Vists unless I am otherwise mistaken. Click here to read what the site has to say and for possible suggestions on where to find the drivers for it.

Acer orbi cam not working


Hi,
I think ur laptop webcam driver not installed properly.If ur laptop have windows vista operating system then do these steps.
Goto Start - Programs - Recovery Manager - Recovery Manager.In that recovery manager,click on next.Its shows the Software reinstallation page.Click on next button two times.Its shows the software lists.Select the webcam software and click on next button.After reinstallation completed , u restart laptop and check it.
If ur laptop have windows XP operating system then u uninstall the webcam software through Add/Remove program and restart it.After restarting ,Reinstall the web cam software and check it. If u doesnt have webcam drivers then u go for nearest service centre and install it.

Thanks
