Take a look here Skype There's a troubleshooting guide at bottom of page which may help.

Simple answer go get a separate webcam and plug it in,this wil (a) let you h get video feeds and (b) give you time to get your netbook one sorted (c) at least you'll have a spare camera.

Skype - Tools/Options/Video Settings. Does the web cam content show here and have you checked the settings available there.

As a last resort maybe reinstall the camera drivers. Only a long shot but if you have re-installed Skype already then it is the last thing I can recommend before getting drastic.
