Look for a piece of software called "Acer Crystal Eye webcam" in your start menu program list, or in your program files folder. This is a simple photo and video capture program that comes with your laptop. It is very similar to Apple's "Photo Booth" program if your familiar with that.
To start recording a video click on the camcorder icon, to stop click on it again. To take a picture click on the camera icon. All of your saved photos and videos will be displayed in a scrolling menu along the bottom of the program window. To delete a file click on it to highlight and then click the trash can icon. To open a file in a video player or photo view double click it. If you don't have this software I've included a link to download it from cnet.com below.
you need to download a video capturing device
if your system did not come with one
the built in webcam is exactly that for messaging programs and taking snaps but they can be used for video and this is usually something you need to get on your own
debut is usually a pretty good site

I believe your best bet is to use Windows Movie Maker to record your videos.
The acer's built in software is designed to only do snapshots. There are tons of free software available, but Movie Maker is the easiest to begin with. Any "video capture" software will work. Have fun; don't forget to rate this.
Import video is only when you have recorded a video using the webcam in a particular format and not on the fly which is what you are trying to do.
Record what you want using another application and the webcam then import the video into movie maker to edit.
Alternatively, I think you need to to go the options screen and select the default audio device. Go to control pannels and see if its there and then select the webcam as the default device for MS applications.
