Hello.

There might just be something wrong with your webcam.
First off, be sure to have the latest drivers installed, then try it on the software provided together with the driver (some webcam models are known to be conflicting with Skype, just a thought).

If nothing here helps, I'm afraid there's something wrong with the webcam itself or the cables connecting it with the mobo.

Keep me posted, good luck!

Try reinstalling the webcam by using only the driver that came with it. It's usually found on a cd.
