Re: acer orbicam has stopped working
Try uninstalling the device from your device manager, and use the installation disc for operating system to reinstall it, if camera is detachable, uninstall it from device manager and unplug it from laptop and reinstall software driver for it.

Go to www.acer.co.uk. Home users, sevice and support. The page will redirect you to the Euro page for drivers and downloads. Select your acer pc model then download the drivers corresponding to your orbicam. If you are missing any other drivers (look in device manager on your comp), download those too. You must unzip downloaded drivers and find the installation file to install. This should help.

folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.

Then repeat steps above and instead of driver choose Bison (or your model which can be found in device manager - control panel - system - device manager - Imaging devices) Utility
