✔ Best Answer
I'm going to assume that you have a webcam (either inbuilt or separate) and that the necessary drivers are installed - if not, let us know. The Acer model number would be useful, usually under the machine if it is a laptop.

In Skype go to Tools > Options > Audio settings. See if the Microphone is showing your webcam, if not use the drop down and, if it is available, select it. If only your normal audio is showing it means that your webcam is not working.

In the same path go to Video settings > Webcam settings button > then hit Default button and Apply/OK your way out. The screen with the default button should be showing a video of what it is seeing.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
