    Soo i had torn down my m18x r1 about a year ago, and procrastinated rebuilding it for way too long. well now that i want to, i cant find my screws. like.... all of them. (display assembly is still together, so not those ones, but the ones that mount the screen to the body tho) and al lthe rest of them.

    Does anyone have any recommendation on where I can purchase them, or if anyone has any for sale?

    And if anyone has an actual count of how many screws I need, since i dont want to buy too few, or way too many. you know? Thanks in advance ^.^

    The Parts People usually sell screw sets but if you just want to grab some from ebay then you'll need M2.5 wafer head screws in different lengths.
    M2.5x3
    M2.5x5
    M2.5x8 (most of the screws required)
    M2.5x10 (hinges)

    The screws that fix the HDD/SSD to the caddy are M3x3

    I usually buy bags of 10 or 20 of different sizes from ebay. Whenever I buy a laptop to repair there are always a bunch of screws missing.
