Question about Acer Aspire Computers & Internet
Hi every time I try and use Skype my camera doesn't work. It used to work fine and then it would work for the first 5 minutes of a conversation and switch off and now it doesn't work at all. I tried to change the skype settings to allow my camera but then my camera starts flicking on and off really fast, it will detect it for a split second then not detect it and just carries on doing that
Here's a troubleshooting guide from Skype:https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA1267/how-can-i-solve-problems-with-video-calling-in-skype-for-windows-desktop
If those steps do not work (definitely try updates and another application like Google Hangouts),try another USB webcam and see if skype can use it correctly (https://support.skype.com/en/faq/FA3731/how-can-i-check-that-my-webcam-is-working-correctly-in-skype-for-windows-desktop). If the external camera does work, there's a good chance that the issue is with the internal camera and may need to be replaced.
If there are still issues, here's a couple other things to try:
try running an antivirus program like AVG or Avira which have free versions or free online scans,
Try running a "system restore" to a date that you know the camera worked- http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/features/system-restore

It sounds like some files are corrupted. Have you checked you device manager? Is there any read or yellow alert in it? Feel free to visit digitalsupporttech for getting help.

SOURCE: The webcam is not working
Hi. I suggest you try to press and hold the Function(Fn) button then press the Escape(Esc) button on your keyboard to enable or disable your webcam, when you press the Fn+Esc key it will show you a confirmation if your webcam is ON or OFF, after that try using it again with skype. Hope This Helps

If what you simply need is to video Chat, you can simply change your video settings from
1.Tools then Options
2VIDEO SETTINGS then HP WEBCAM and SAVE
Please let me know if it works for you!

first this you should check your drivers are installed properly or not. first you should know, whether the cam is actually working or not without using skype.If cam is working then there must be some reason of incompatible with your netbook.
