    My Acer Aspire 5050, acer obicam is currently not working.

    I bought my laptop about two years ago, and it crashed on me, so i had to put it in a repair shop. I just recently got it back (i know, what a long wait!) and they had to put new everything in it. now the acer orbi cam is no longer on the main screen. I've been through this WHOLE computer. Every file, every program, tried the search program, everything. Nothing leads me to fixing it, or even showing it as part of the computer. i need my webcam! i have many friends that i keep & touch with, most importantly my family. help with this problem! & fast!

    I have the same problem, but my operating system is windows vista. My cam has never worked since i had the computer (1 year) and I never took it in. None of the drivers I have installed work either.

Try downloading the Crystal Eye Webcam Driver for the Aspire 4710Z model and install the drivers and the application that comes with the drivers.that pretty much solved the problem for me.I also installed webcam max software to make sure it would work with third party appz.it seems the orbicam software is the one causing the problem.

good luck.

Hi if you are using WinXP install SP2 so that your Cam is recognized and then install the corresponding driver for the Cam .

Acer orbicam


download the software from www.acerpanam.com.
you need 2 things.
1. orbicam driver (if you can see your orbicam in device manager, you don't need to install driver again).
2. orbicam application, there are 3 kind of orbicam (suyin, bison and logitech), I don't know what is yours. you need to try 1 by 1.

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

Acer orbi cam not working


Checked if your orbicam is in device manager (under imaging device),
if it still there, you might have wrong orbicam application installed. try to download the orbicam application, there are 3 type of orbicam for Aspire 5050 (suyin, bison and logitech). try to installed one by one.
or if you can try to reload the whole windows, using alt+f10 during boot.

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
