I have lost the tiny screw that holds down the m.2 card in my NUC I dropped it on the carpet and after 10 minutes crawling around trying to find it I was hoping someone on here might have one they could mail me.

Would it be magnetic?

Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

I do not believe it is magnetic but I do not know for sure.

epr: I do not believe it is magnetic but I do not know for sure.


In case it is magnetic, have you tried searching the carpet with a magnet?

You could try taking off your shoes and socks and walk around, if it has any sharp points you will find it immediately.


Get a really bright light and get down to a close angle and look for it that way.


Otherwise empty the dust collector on the vacuum and run it over the area, listen for the tell tale rattle of a screw bouncing up the tube.
