The technician may be right or he might not want the job, to confirm ask another computer repair shop for a cost to repair.
It is impossible for me to advise of the cost without seeing the extent of the damage.

The first thing to do is to find the user manual for your laptop. It will have the location(s) where the RAM is located. Some laptops with dual channel memory have the RAM physically seperated in different compartments, one on the underside of the computer, and one under the keyboard. Some have them in one compartment on the underside. You need to find out where. Once you do, you can then procede to remove the old with the new. Of course, make sure you know how to do this or you can cause permanent damage. If after reading the manual, you do not feel confident in replacing it yourself, find someone who can. Replacing RAM is not a very time consuming task, just be very mindful of keeping track of the little screws you will have to remove.
Hope this helps.

make sure that you are using the right socket and also check that the line out from the laptop is not muted or maybe lowered down from the control panel / audio settings.

There may be a bent connector on one of the USB ports or a defective USB controller on the motherboard. The bluetooth connector may not have been reconnected or the bluetooth module was not reinstalled after service. Sadly you will need to have it serviced again. They most likely will not replace it it with a new laptop, but maybe a refurbished one. You could push for a warranty extension for amount of time the system has been due to need of repair. Good Luck.

where did you see that the computer had 4 GB of ram? ram can only be removed by removing ram memory modules from inside the computer.

Battery life on a portable system is a contentious issue, and manufacturer's marketing of battery life doesn't help the cause a bit.

There are several factors that will determine the ACTUAL battery life of your system versus the ADVERTISED battery life.
  1. Battery type and watt/hour rating. There are 2 types of portable batteries, Lithium Ion (LION) and Nickel Metal Hydride (NMHD) The LION battery is longer lasting and has a more consistant power output than NMHD batteries, and is more expensive. The watt hour capability is based on the number of cells in the battery (normally 4, 6, 9 and sometimes 12 cell batteries are available) The higher the watt hour rating (more cells) the longer it lasts. LION batteries are more expensive and higher watt hour ones are more expensive. So if you took the best price on the battery you bought, or if you got a system on SALE/good deal, you may have gotten the lesser battery in the DEAL.
  2. How the system is used on battery and power management settings. When manufacturers advertise battery life, they use the mose economical use of power configuration to get that possible life. LCD brightness to minimum, nothing running inoptical drive, minimum accesses of HDD, system running in cold room to minimize fan operation and essentially doing just enough with the system to keep it from going too sleep. They turn off every feature that can be turned off, the most powerful brand new battery available, and the "LIFE" they get in that senario, is the one they advertise. So, if you are playing a DVD, with all power management off and the LCD up full bright, your battery life may be less than 10% of the advertised life.
  3. Age/number of recharge cycles of the battery. Battery warranties are generally 1 year by most major manufacturers. This is because they consider the battery a consumable item and it gets used up. The normal battery has a life of 300 to 500 recharge/discharge cycles. Some last longer, some don't and are replaced under warranty. If the battery is not a year old, you can likely get it replaced by the manufacturer of the system under warranty.
  4. If you buy a replacement battery, get a LION battery with at least 9 cells. It will be more expensive, but you get what you pay for in batteries.
