First, try uninstalling your cam through the hardware manager, reboot and let it re-install it. The orbicam has had issues for quite some time on Acer's PC's. I've never been able to use mine for more than about 2-3 months without having something happen with it.

You can also go to Acer's website and download the current/newest cam driver for your computer.

Let me know if either of these have helped.

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.

Acer orbicam


There are two software entities involved – the camera Drivers and the OrbiCam application itself – and BOTH need replacing/updating to fix this problem.
The new driver and a new version of webcam application (below) seem to fix the issue.
The correct files to download are:
Acer Orbicam driver (Bison)
Acer Orbicam Bison utility 1.0.0.13

These can be found here under the MS Windows Vista drop down menu:
http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_9300.html
In order to fix the problem, you must download and install them both to make the Orbicam work correctly.

FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW IN THE SAME ORDER:
1. remove the installed OrbiCam application and reboot if required;
2. install the new driver (preferably with the “driver update” wizard from Device Manager)
3. update the Orbicam application 1.0.0.13

After this, the webcam should function properly, even if the original Orbicam icon disappears.
To check everything is working OK run LiveCa07.exe or BisonM07.exe that are located in the c:\windows\bisonxxx\ folder or simply run Messenger

go to your device maneger in the system properties (by right clicking the My Computer icon and go to properties click the tab Hardware and then go to Device Maneger) check if your cam is working properly and check if its enabled
regarding w/ your USB you can check it there....

Orbicam?


because the cam is built in its not as versatile as a mobile cam, but you can turn the cam over 225 degrees to film from the back of the notebook. If using Vista, open the cam software click the right arrow next to record video button and set your personal settings, click record and then any recording will be saved to my videos. You then can import it into windows movie maker and then add any effects to your movie. if you have XP or XP media centre you can use windows movie maker2 and make your video from within the programme itself using the orbicam, without using the orbicam software.

There are two types of driver for the orbicam, Bison and Logitech, so ensure you have the correct one installed, especially if you are running Vista as it's a different driver again, and it's installed a seperate peice of hardware although it's built into the notebook. There are no listing for 5600 drivers so try 5610 they should be the same http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/tm_5610.html
