When you installed the cam an OEM program was loaded at least for access to settings. Changing your laptop does nothing to prevent that program. My Philips webcam has a little program called VLounge that enables me to turn it on or off. If that program, which may only be considered a 'process' by Windows prevents me from using the webcam with Microsoft, Adobe or Cyberlink video programs. If you really can't find anything else running then uninstall the webcam and pay attention to what is being installed when you reinstall it.

Why my computer keeps telling me forced shut down


Probably because there are programs still running in the background. Even though you have not opened some programs many will be running as a matter of course.
This is very common - and you have nothing to worry about

Acer aspire 5630 orbicam is not working


From another user:
"open up the cam software as normal, then turn your camera to face the back of your notebook, turn it back again and keep clicking the camera start button and eventually it will come on."

This worked for me. It is the only thing that has worked!

Acer orbi cam


tell me about it, it seems to be an inherrent fault with this model, this sometimes works though.

swivel the camera around to face the rear of the notebook (making sure you turn it the right way) and turn it back again, now try to run the camera again, keep clicking the icon to start the cam and eventually it comes on.

Acer orbi cam not working


Hi,
I think ur laptop webcam driver not installed properly.If ur laptop have windows vista operating system then do these steps.
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.
If ur laptop have windows XP operating system then u uninstall the webcam software through Add/Remove program and restart it.After restarting ,Reinstall the web cam software and check it. If u doesnt have webcam drivers then u go for nearest service centre and install it.

Thanks
