Acer Aspire T3-710 M.2 SSD screw size

I am trying to install a M.2 SSD drive to my Acer Aspire T3-710, and the motherboard does not include a screw. I did a quick search on the forum and there are people successfully installed a M.2 SSD drive. May I ask what size of screw is used, and where can it be purchased? Thanks.

    M2x3mm, the M.2 specific screws have a wide head on them, but the normal headed ones will work in a pinch.

    Does this rig work for editing photos? Yes! I thought the low-power Sandy Bridge architecture from my 2011 iMac was doing just fine until I imported about 100 raw files into Capture One on this machine. My jaw dropped. It handled each 16MB RAW file as quickly as my old machine worked with plain jpgs. I went to Userbenchmark.com and it appears that the high clock speed of the i3-6100's dual cores combined with the well above average I/O of the 2TB HDD combine to make it more responsive than you'd think a machine at this price point would be. I'm not saying it's as responsive as some of the SSD machines I've worked on, because it's not, but this HDD is fast enough that you aren't searching the couch cushions for change to buy an SSD as an immediate upgrade.

    The speed of M.2 NVMe SSD is just unmatched by 2.5" SATA SSDs and spinning HDDs.

    This T3-710 only supports SATA interface (550MB/s) on the M.2 SSD, not NVMe. But the performance is still amazing compared to HDD. I bought the Samsung 860 EVO 500GB and now its like a completely new machine.
