Question about PC Laptops
I have an acer aspire, 5633WLMi and its great, one thing is one time i thought my mouse key broken andso whe i tried to move it it came off, to my horror i thought i had broken it, but it clicked back on which is great.
Now last night my left mouse button on the laptop was all fun so i tried to push dow but then it came loose and i cannot seem to put it back i place, i was woderig if anyone know if this is the same as the keyboard and you just have to get it in right place, or if i will have to take it to pcworld or something, i need my laptop because i am at uni so the left mouse key is kinda vital to me.
I am just also wondering if any knows this is common and not to worry or as i say take it to pcworld to get fixed.
Don't "buy a service manual." These are available from the manufacturer's website. It'll show you how to disassemble the laptop. You can get a cheap touchpad replacement on ebay for cheap.
You could always just switch the left and right touchpad button properties around so the right button is left clicking.
Or you could just get a cheap usb mouse. You can find them online for less than $10.

My left clicker 'collapsed' a month after I bought my Acer Aspire 5630. It is jammed in the machine and will not move. I have been using it without the left clicker for 12 months now as I changed over to using the right clicker instead. I have managed quite well without it up to now. I have a 3 year warranty so I thought I would wait till something else went wrong before sending it back! Acer said they would have to restore it to factory settings to repair the touchpad?? which would be a great inconvenience.

Unfortunately I cannot find a good picture of your laptop. The one I did find that showed the touchpad ( what your calling a mouse )
shows it to be somewhat like my Compaq. If you can't just simply press down ( with just a bit of force ) and refasten it,
I'd suggest taking it to an Acer certified repair location. They shouldn't charge you a lot to fix that, unless it for some reason
would require complete disassembly ( which it shouldn't), I know I wouldn't.

Just a temp fix. Buy a usb mouse, and use the usb mouse for now. Then back up your data, and ship in the laptop. I'm not sure if you open up the laptop yourself, it might void any warranties that you have.
Just a thought.

If you've tried to used adhesive and it still won't hold i would assume somebody has to open the Laptop and replace the part. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there are third party Laptop Repair Services. However, the part is available on ebay. Here's a guide on how to disassemble a Laptop. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you.

I have had the same problem with the exact same computer. The left key is extremely loose. I have no clue how to fix it though, so I'm just adapting to it until I do?
