The accept rate is only updated periodically, I believe - if you've accepted an answer just now then wait a while and it should update.

Also if you accept a CW answer, I don't believe that affects anything.

If you could let us now which account you're talking about, that would help :)

EDIT: Okay, having looked into it a bit more, and found the original blog post I think the problem is that the questions are too new.

You've only accepted answers to the new questions - whereas only questions 3 days old (or older) count for either acceptance or non-acceptance.

And you need to have asked a minimum number of non-CW questions too –  ChrisF Nov 2 '09 at 12:01
    
@ChrisF: That definitely isn't a problem, otherwise the accept rate wouldn't have come up to start with. –  Jon Skeet Nov 2 '09 at 12:07
    
Ah - of course. –  ChrisF Nov 2 '09 at 12:09
