Any one help with what this would be up to? 

Brand new Acer E1-521 with built in webcam. 

Having issues with it not being detected? 

Any idea where the drivers are? Or a safe site to download some new ones?

If you are using the software provided by Acer then drivers will be included automatically. I doubt it is a driver problem. You could try installing the webcam software from the application tab on the support page here:

but my guess is that is already on your system.

It is time to call Acer warranty.

Is the webcam enabled? A lot of PC's have a button/switch or keyboard shortcut to enable, so it would probably pay to read the manual first.
