I got windows 10 installed on my acer laptop and since then, the camera does not work. An external webcam is working fine. I've tried running skype to find it and it doesn't show up there. Any suggestions?

Because win 10 didn't set it up with drivers, Possible there is no drivers made for win 10 with that device, you could see if drivers for previos windows will work with 10. Could also check windows update, they offer optional updates separate and this is where you get offered device drivers, check if any optionals offer a device driver for it .What model?
