You need to go -
Tools, internet options, in the drop down box that comes up, click on"
Internet" in the window box and UNCHECK the box in the lower left corner that
says ENABLE PROTECTED MODE. Click apply and close out of the open boxes.
Doulble click Internet Explorer icon to load up and you should be okay, You
will have to click on the HOME button every time you load up I.E. as it
prompts you to do this if you want to connect to the internet. Worked for me
after trying everything else. Don't know if this is a glitch in the OS or a
security feature. Hope they disable this check box by default in later builds
or Microsoft will be swamped with calls with people trying to connect to the
internet. LOL.

Try reinstalling the WebCam driver, to do so:

Start Menu> All Programs> Acer erecovery management> Restore> install Application & Drivers> Select the appropriate WebCam (Suyian or Chicony) and install it and restart the computer.

Camera Assistant Software:
a. On the taskbar double-click the Camera Assistant Software icon , or from the Windows® Start menu, point to All Programs, Camera Assistant Software, and then click Camera Assistant Software. The Camera Assistant Toolbar location briefly displays on the desktop.
b. On the Camera Assistant Toolbar, click the Start Camera button and click on the icons on the software.
NOTE: If you are not hearing the audio portion of the video you created, try the following: Verify that you do not have the audio capture muted. An X appears on the Mute button when Mute is selected.
Click the Functions button, and then click the Audio tab. In the Audio Output section, verify that the Digital Mic is selected from the Audio Device drop down list, and then click Apply. In the Audio Volume section, use the slider bar to increase the volume level. Verify that the notebook's volume is not muted. Pressing the Fn+End keys mutes the volume. Pressing the keys a second time restores the volume. Increase the notebook volume level by pressing the Fn+PgUp keys

How to Record Webcam Video with Earlier Versions of Windows Movie Maker If you're still using Windows XP, your Windows Movie Maker version might still support capturing video from a webcam. To do this, go to your WMM Movie Tasks and then select "Capture from Video Device". Select webcam from the list of analog devices. You must also select the video input line you want to use for capturing your webcam video. Then enter a name for your captured video file and the location of the drive where you want to save it. Select your video setting preferences for the video you want to capture. To stop capturing, you can either
choose to stop anywhere during the recording session or indicate a specific time limit before the recording stops.
How to Record Video on Your Webcam with Newer Versions of Windows Movie Maker When we say newer versions, we are referring to Windows Movie Maker version 6 which comes pre-loaded with the Windows Vista system. Since Windows Vista is a pretty advanced OS, we expected the latest version of the WMM to support webcam video capture as well. It's very helpful and economical since it comes packaged with Windows Vista, and you don't have to pay the extra cost just to have that tool.
So, the next question now is, how can you record a webcam video using Windows Movie Maker 6. Actually, like we said - you can't. You won't see the "Start Capture" tool in the File Menu of your latest Windows Movie Maker.
Your best bet is to look for alternative and cheaper software that would help you capture whatever you want to record from your webcam. Or, better yet, use the software that comes with your webcam to capture video and then import it into Windows Movie Maker for editing and enhancements. If your webcam didn't come with video capture software, you're in luck because there are free software appllications available for you to download to do such tasks. You can find a good list of webcam video capturing software from this list:

It sounds like a loose connection between the camera and the computer inside the case.

The Video capture Utility says so.

And if you have no picture it comes out black.

The WEB cam (camera) is normally a USB device, it can send and capture video images as well as still images. You can talk and see people over the Internet with a WEB cam.
You need to install WEBcam software for that particular model WEBcam on your computer and configure it to run with Skype, or any other VOIP (voice over IP) software. The WEBcam software will allow you to create a video (movie) and take still photos, it will allow you to store these images on your computer.
