If you are having a orbicam issues it could be either the Driver or the software /program part of it. I would recommend you go to the Acer webiste and goto support and type your model number in and download the Orbicam software and driver and Reinstall it after you uninstall/remove it from your system and restart first. This should fix your problem you might just have a missing file on the program .Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution.

Webcam error "Creation of the video preview failed"


Sounds like you may have picked up a damaged WebCam /Mic
I would not play around with items unless you know that they are in working condition, as you may end up shorting out a USB port or worse.

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.
