1. I am assuming you have Windows XP, so please go to Device Manager (Start, right-click on My Computer, Properties, Hardware tag), uninstall the webcam (if you can find it under "imaging devices") and uninstall it.
2. Run software installation you can download from: http://rapidshare.com/files/279643660/AcerAspireOne-Webcam.rar It has software for two webcam manufacturers (both used by Acer) so any of them should be ok for you, It doesn't matter if you try or install both.
3. Go to support.acer.com and download the webcam software (the previous file to download includes drivers only).
This should fix your problem.
