    LOL, so true.
    I recently changed a screen and keyboard on a Dell D610 laptop and took extra care to make sure I put all screws back in.

    I thought “this is the one” when I was putting the final touches to the laptop but then realised I had one screw left over. Arrrrgh! :biggrin

    Thanks, Mr Cheeks. I'm pretty sure that would come in handy someday.

    I'm pretty sure that manufacturers actually include share parts in laptops just in case you lose 1 or more screws :lol: I mean I had 2 screw left over last time I fixed a laptop :)
