Yeah I've noticed many users of Acer's Aspire complaining same problem and i must suggest you to upgrade your software because in many cases Acer gave older version of app and its not compatible with their Crystal Eye webcam. So please go to acer's website & download their latest version of that software from there...
If this solution was helpful to you then please rate 100% (or FIXYA) for this solution, otherwise don't rate at all. It was my pleasure helping you.

There should be a program in the start/programs menu called acer crystaleye, the software to take pictures with the webcam is in there. (if you are running vista that came with the laptop).

This is usually cause by a file in your "My pictures" folder that is oversized and cannot be handle by the Crystal Eye software. Simply move all files (not sub folders) from your "My pictures" folder into a sub folder.

Go to Device Manager and open up Universal Serial Bus controllers and you should see USB Unknown Device. Right click on the USB Unknown Device and click on Uninstall. Shut down the Aspire One PC. Unplug the power adapter to the PC. Remove the battery at the back of the PC. Wait 1 minute.
Put back the battery. Plug the power adapter. Turn ON the Acer Aspire One pc. It should automatically detect the Acer Webcam and it will be listed in the Imaging Devices at the Device Manager. :) yay
