How to use the built-in webcam? The integrated webcam can be used by third-party applications such as Yahoo Messenger, Windows Live Messenger, AOL Instant Messenger, Skype etc. Use the webcam button in the messenger software and it will automatically turn on and start the webcam.
Select models of Acer netbooks also ship with a program "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam". This program will enable the webcam immediately after startup and can be used to take pictures and record video.
For our Linux-based netbook, you can find the Instant Messenger program in the "Connect" section on the desktop . Additional software like Skype, are available through our special website for the Aspire One netbook. Within the "Fun" section of your Linux desktop, you will find a program called "Webcam" which can be used to test the built-in webcam.
Look for "Acer Crystal Eye Webcam" entry in the programs menu, then right click on the program icon and click on "Send to the desktop as a shortcut".

It's always recommended that you restart your system after installing any kind of software . Did you do that ? If not , then you should do it . If that didn't work , then you should take your Extensa to the service , because it seems that camera is not wired . It's better to get it to an acer shop if you still have the guarantee.

The fastest way of fixing it just reinstalling the driver. here's the link
After you download it and run it. It would probably tell you If you want to uninstall instead of install. Uninstall, restart the computer and run the software again to reinstall. It should fix your issue. I hope this helps.

I understand your concern.
If i were you i would buy a small external webcam which is available for laptops.
There are two reasons for that. First of all, if you take it to the Acer repair center, they will charge you a huge amount (since it is not in warranty).
Second thing is that the lead which you are talking about is practically impossible to get other than from their manufacturer.
Hope that helps...
