Does anyone have spare M2.5x8mm flathead laptop screws?

 

I need about 50 to fix up six Lenovo G570 laptops who have managed to lose a number of screws each.

 

Or is there a place that can supply?

 

Thanks.

I have some, but not sure if there are 50 of them.  I just needed a couple screws but could only buy a whole "set".  I will check when I'm home how many there are of that size.

 

 

 

edit: nope only 20 of each size.  But here you go: http://www.aliexpress.com/item/50pcs-M2-5-x-8mm-Laptop-Notebook-Screw-Phillips-Flat-Wafer-Head-Black-Zinc/32402268429.html

No, trademe, I needed them in a hurry.  Search on there for "laptop screws" and you'll see the set I got.

Yikes, I would have to buy 900 screws to get 50 of the size I need.

 

If I get desperate I might have to consider that. Thanks.

ALix is probably your best bet, there were larger quantities available too if you need more than 50, and just the size you want.  Won't take that long to arrive.
