Re: Need missing screws from bottom of my notebook

If you are able to absolutely identify which screw is missing, I can check to see what kind of screw it is and provide that information for you.

Re: Need missing screws from bottom of my notebook

Tommy, thank you for your response and any help given. . .

 

The screws are the ones that hold the bottom of the notebook together.

If you flip the notebook over so that the bottom is face-up, the two screws that are missing are both on the Top Right (Side with the power button, ventilation slots).

 

One is real close to where you plug in the power cord to the notebook, sort of on the corner.

 

The other is to the left of that position, but down al little bit (it's right beside the little rubber pad that I guess keeps the laptop from sliding or to keep it level.

Ok, yes I guess that is the correct screw in the pic. I've never seen the actual screws outside of the laptop, because I've never taken them out, all I can tell you is the location of the missing screws as I did so in my previous reply. Here is an attached pic of what is missing on my notebook.

 

Ok now, how do I go about getting the screw?

Again thanks
