How to install ram in 8.9 inch

The ram will either go into a slots located on the bottom of the netbook that has a cover and screws over it. Or if you are unlucky and Acer wanted to make things hard, they put the slots under the keyboard or palmrest, which means you have to remove the keyboard or palmrest. Check the bottom of the laptop first.

My extensa 5620 touch pad left butto doesnt work .

You can try removing the trackpad from the device manager and then restarting the computer.

If that doesn't solve the issue than more than likely it's hardware related and you'll have to replace the palmrest with the correcting matching part. They're cheap and easy to replace yourself with ebay OR you could just get a usb mouse if you want a band aid solution.

Mouse pad dosen't work not even the scroll part

It the touchpad fails and doesn't work in the diagnostics (Confirms issue is not windows, but hardware) then on most portables this will require replacement of the palmrest assembly.
Generally, if you are somewhat mechanically inclined, this process takes about 60 to 90 minutes and a palmrest costs around $100 on Ebay. If not inclined, this about $100 to 150 labor to have one installed.
another option is a USB Wireless mouse, about $30

Mouse randomly shifts around

that is probably a bad Touch-Pad. You may need to get it replaced. you can try and re-seat the cable, but you may have to buy a new palmrest.

Click button replacement?

The easiest way is going to be replacing the entire palmrest, the top of the laptop that holds the keyboard and power strip and covers the motherboard. They can be found on Ebay, I bought one for an 17" HP DV9000 for 16 bucks...just take it to a PC repair shop and have them throw it on for you. Only takes a half an hour.

ACER 5100 KEYBOURD AND MOUSE AND USB NOT WORKING that's interesting...usually that's a symptom of the touchpad, not being connected to the motherboard. The way to get to that is to remove the keyboard, and then check the small connector from palmrest to the main board...

got backup for your Acer?

Acer Aspire 5003 Touchpad button problems (Hardware)

Tou will usually require the entire palmrest to be replaced if the plastic has snapped. if the plastic is still strong and you just want the "click" back everytime you press it then you will have to replace the inside of the button on the mobo or the button itself. Cheapest option would be to use an external mouse. If not and you dont feel comfortable repairing it yourself then it should be a fairly simple repair for a competent repair guy.
