    Model5742 web cam not working

    The Acer OrbiCam is a built-in 1.3 megapixel webcam mounted at the top of certain Acer laptops. The webcam can record video clips and integrate with instant messaging software. If you are trying to use your Acer OrbiCam but it won't connect, the driver--a small software file that tells the webcam what to do--may be outdated. Acer provides webcam driver update pages for the Aspire 9300 and Aspire 5570 versions.

    1.Go to the Acer 5570 or Acer 9300 Driver Download page (see Resources).
    2.Click "MS Windows XP" or "MS Windows Vista" on the drop-down menu, depending on your operating system.
    3.Select "Acer OrbiCam Bison Driver" from the menu.
    4.Click "Save File > OK" and wait for it to download.
    5.Double-click on the downloaded setup files to install the driver.
    6.Go back to the Acer Downloads page, and select "Acer OrbiCam Driver Bison Utility" from the drop-down menu.
    7.Click on "Save File > OK" and wait for it to download. Double-click on the downloaded setup files to install the driver.
    8.Restart the computer.

    Transfering my outlook and emails folders from my old desk to my new acer desk top

    No because outlook is an installed program in your older computer so you can't transfer install programs from one hard drive to the next.

    Acer OrbiCam not working (acer aspiral9412zwsmi)

    Has it worked in the past, on this computer?
    Have you recently upgraded to Vista?

    Here is a suggestion:
    There are two software entities involved – the camera Drivers and the OrbiCam application itself

    The new driver and a new version of webcam application (below)

    The correct files to download are:
    Acer Orbicam driver (Bison)
    Acer Orbicam Bison utility

    These can be found here under the MS Windows Vista drop down menu:
    You need to download and install them both.

    The icon is not showing up on the desk top

    If the Cruzer icon doesn't appear, you may have the U3 autorun diabled. In explorer, browse to the system drive or the data drive (it should be the next drive letter) and double click the LaunchU3 icon.

    The autorun can be turned on in the U3 Launchpad Settings on the Launchpad menu.

    Hope that helps...
