Hi.. I'll submit here the same solution I made for the similar problem with the Acer Orbicam:

If the Acer Orbicam program itself is not responding all you need is just recreate the Pictures folder where snapshots of your webcam are being saved automatically.

That Pictures folder is located on Desktop>User (which is your user logon account)> Pictures.

Basically, just copy your photos to a new folder, delete the Pictues folder and recreate it, then paste your backed up photos.

If the camera won't stream video, you could uninstall and reinstall the Acer Orbicam from Add/Remove programs.

Click this link for direct download for Bison camera driver for Acer Aspire 5100.

Just run the Setup.exe from the root folder for automatic install.
As for the Acer Orbicam program itself, run the setup.exe under the BSU folder.

Sometimes the acer orbicam software will stop working if you have pictures saved in the "my pictures" folder.

Yes this is very weird, but I have seen it happen.

if you need updates for the orbicam software:

Orbicam


major problem with this camer on acers, try this it works for most people, although only if it's the 225 degree rotating camera:-

open the camera software programme as if you were activating the camera, turn the camera to face the back, then back to the front again, now keep clicking the camera acivation icon until it will finally attach itself to the software again and the green light should come on.
