I have an Aspire 5100 and was just wondering how to connect my orbicam so that the other person can see me while we chat online? Maybe a program I need to download?

    When I first bought my notebook in August the orbicam worked fine. I didn't use it much. But I tried to use it recently and it can't seem to recognize the cam. It may be windows updates I have done that has cause something. I downloaded a bison version and can get it up and working. But I dont know how to connect that to another person to where they can see me.

Did your orbicam come with software that you can install on your computer?

    What instant messenger do you use? Some instant messengers have a option to use webcam chat, you simply have to click a button and it brings up your webcam.

    Click on 'Edit' at the top of the aim screen



    Click on 'Enhanced IM'



    Click the box labeled 'Auto accept all video invitations from buddies on my buddies list'



    Make sure your webcam is set as default on your computer, and that under Audio and Video in aim that 'default device' is selected.

My computer was in for repairs and orbicam has not worked since when i try to open up the program i get nothing

The program that runs orbicam may have been accidentally removed. you should search out the product online and reload whatever is missing. Could be drivers needed to activate orbicam as well. try google it will work wonders. Goodluck.
