I had the same problem with Skype for a long while when trying to use the Acer 'Orbi-Cam' to send & recieve video in chat.

Firstly, |Your OrbiCam works under normal use, yes? i.e. you can take a snap of yourself?

The way i solve this issue is to turn skype on, then before going into chat turn on the orbicam, and just take a picture.

then go to the video options in skype and setup the OrbiCam as default.

Then, try your chat.

If this doesnot work, start from step one, but do the OrbiCam photo test shot before you even turn on skype.

Once working it should remain working for skype for as long as you don't use OrbiCam for any other use.
I have found it to be a good little web cam etc, but unreliable with Skype and tricky to set up with miost messaging services as options are limited.

Good luck..

My laptop does the same thing - i think it is because you either have a new charger or your laptop is just getting old.
