Welcome to Puppy Land!

When you give use information you need to be very specific and detailed.
We only know what you tell us.

Quote:
Bionicpup 32

Is that Bionicpup32 8.0 or one of the Bionicpup32 8.0 + versions?

Quote:
Acer Aspire one

What model number?

Have you tried to setup the camera?
Menu>Graphic>PupCamera
If yes.
What specifically happens?

Hello, it's a za3 netbook with a 19.03 version of bionic pup. I already tried it and it says no device detected.

Check the bios, and make sure the mic and camera are "ENABLED"

This netbook is more suited to AtomicPup-XIX.

No, not really... I very much thought most any Atom N270 with the i915 chipset would work with AP-XIX. The model you have is an early, base model with the 512Mb memory soldered in. All you can do is add a 1Gb mem stick, which you did. The only problem we've run across here at PuppyLand was/is the card-reader and that is proprietary. The USB mouse should work if plugged into the left-side USB port. And I'm rather surprised that the touch pad from 2008-9 is not in a kernel from 2013, there were a lot of AAO netbooks made.

If I had one more try, I would Download Slacko5.7-2018. This is the original version of Slacko5.7 with just security updates... nothing removed.

Have you checked dmesg in a terminal? Is any firmware missing? Try:

dmesg | grep firm
dmesg | grep warn
dmesg | grep err

What does lsusb give?
