Question Laptop heat sink screw lost need help with the size.

Hi everyone,
I own an ASUS TUF FX505GE gaming laptop. Recently I opened my laptop panel to re-paste the thermal paste and found that my screws were stripped. I don't know the screw size. please help me ASAP. ( I don't know if its m2 x 3 mm size or m2.5 x 3mm size). Also, how do I screw them back in and how to apply equal pressure? so that the paste doesn't squeeze out. I am planning on applying Noctua NT-h1.

P.S: It wasn't me who applied that thermal paste. The service engineer applied it.

Hello All,

I got some NVMe M.2 SSD for our workstions. I see that the product nor the workstation comes with the screw. HP does not carry them nor have a replaceable part number.

Are M.2 screws standardized for all laptops / workstations and all brands?

This is for HP EliteDesk 800 G4 SFF

I think so, but it depends on the motherboard maker. I have found that Blu Tack works wonders for fixing items such as these.

They're just M2 screws, I have use M2*3 when I don't have the specific wide headed one to hand, same as the M.2 slot for air cards or WLAN adapters.

They retain them fine.


· · ·




And M2 screws are nearly standard in that the screw size and the length are but the head may be different. See: https://www.laptopscrews.com/Sizing.htm


· · ·




In addition to WiFi cards you can find them holding laptop screens in place. Got old laptops around for parts? Pull some there.


· · ·




I have run into this in the past but have found that most M.2 screws will work on an HP, but the only time I run into an issue with M.2 screws is when I am installing a drive into a Dell laptop.  The screw screws into the drive standoff and is a special screw.

Hello @Technicky, thank you for your post.  After checking in with the consultant, I was given this reply:  "HP is using standard size screws."  He agrees with @Brianinca about the M2*3 size.

Ghost Chili


I'd just point out, the dozens and dozens of HP Inc EX900/EX920/EX950 NVMe SSD's  we've bought to upgrade noteooks and desktops _all_ came with an M2 screw in the box. 

Helped a friend with an NVMe selection on his quarantine build, he had picked out an older EX900 and was comparing against a Samsung 970 EVO. I steered him to the EX950, which is slightly to a lot faster on read/write and yet was nice little bit less expensive (FMS23AA vs MZ-V7E1T0BW). 


· · ·




I know the HP Z240 workstations use an M1.6 screw, NOT an M2 screw as they are too wide.  I can personally attest to this as I had to buy a pack of M1.6 screws to install an NVMe SSD in mine.

If the typical M2 screw is too large (which may very well be the case in your Elitedesk) -- get some M1.6 x 5mm instead.

Computer case screws

From left to right: a #6-32 UNC thumbscrew, a #6-32 UNC screw, an M3 screw and a self-tappingscrew for case fans

Computer case screws are the hardware used to secure parts of a PC to the case. Although there are numerous manufacturers of computer cases, they have generally used three thread sizes. The Unified Thread Standard (UTS) originates from the United States, while the ISO metric screw thread is standardized worldwide. In turn, these thread standards define preferred size combinations that are based on generic units—some on the inch and others on the millimetre.

The #6-32 UNC screws are often found on 3.5" hard disk drives and the case's body to secure the covers. The M3 threaded holes are often found on 5.25" optical disc drives, 3.5" floppy drives, and 2.5" drives. Motherboards and other circuit boards often use a #6-32 UNC standoff. #4-40 UNC thumb screws are often found on the ends of DVI, VGA, serial and parallel connectors.

More modern cases from certain manufacturers (Dell, Gateway) and enthusiast cases will lack screws altogether, instead utilizing a tool-less design.

#6-32 UNC screw[edit]

The #6-32 UNC screw has a thread pitch of 1/32 in(0.031250 inches (0.7938 mm)).

The #6-32 UNC is a UTS screw specifying a major thread diameter of #6 which is defined as 0.1380 inches (3.51 mm); and 32 tpi (threads per inch) which equates to a thread pitch of 0.031250 inches (0.7938 mm). The optional UNC specification indicates the standard coarse thread is used which is defined for #6 screws as 32 tpi rendering 'UNC' redundant, however it may be seen when other specifications such as plating or other treatments are also specified. It is by far the most common screw found inside computer cases.[1] It commonly appears in lengths of 3/16 in (0.1875 inches (4.76 mm)) and 1/4 in (0.25 inches (6.4 mm)) or less often 5/16 in (0.3125 inches (7.94 mm)). Non-standard metricized lengths such as 5 millimetres (0.20 in) are also sometimes encountered. Nearly every brand new computer case comes with a bag of these. They are commonly used for the following purposes, however there are many exceptions:

  • securing a power supply to the case
  • securing a 3.5-inch hard disk drive to the case
  • holding an expansion card in place by its metal slot cover
  • fastening case components to one another
  • usually, one or more #6-32 UNC screws hold the main cover on the case

They are almost always provided with a #2 Phillips drive. Sometimes a Torx drive is used instead. Both Phillips and Torx patterns may also be combined with a slot for a flat-blade screwdriver. Usually they are provided with a 1/4 in (0.25 inches (6.4 mm)) flanged hex head. Non-standard metricized 5.5 millimetres (0.22 in) flanged hex heads can also be encountered. Also common are pan head screws - a low disk with a chamfered outer edge. Because they are used in places where high torque is not required and easy removal and replacement may be desirable (such as on the side panels of the PC case), they are frequently available as thumbscrews with larger, knurled heads that can be removed with one's fingers or tools.

M3 screw[edit]

The M3 screw (bottom) has a thread pitch of 0.5 millimetres (0.020 in), which is finer than the 0.031250 inches (0.7938 mm) pitch of a #6-32 UNC screw (top).

The M3 is a metric screw specifying a nominal diameter of 3 millimetres (0.12 in); and standard coarse thread pitch defined as 0.5 millimetres (0.020 in). The M3 is the second most common screw found in PCs.[1] It commonly appears in many lengths from 1 to 20 mm. Nearly every brand-new computer case comes with a bag of these. Notwithstanding many exceptions, they are commonly used for securing the following devices:[2][failed verification]

M3 screws typically accept a #2 Phillips screwdriver tip.

Motherboard standoff[edit]

Various types of motherboard standoffs

Most cases use threaded brass standoffs (Jack Screw Standoffs) for attaching the motherboard to the case chassis. Because the case material is usually a conductive metal, attaching the motherboard directly to it can cause a short circuit. Sometimes threaded or snap-lock plastic standoffs are used, which are less secure, but equally useful in a stationary computer. The standoff provides a margin of space between the motherboard and the case to keep the multiple solder points below from grounding and short-circuiting.

Usually, the standoff has a #6-32 UNC male thread on one end which screws into a threaded hole in the case or motherboard backplate and a #6-32 UNC female thread in the other end which accepts a screw to retain the motherboard. Less often, the standoff has a female thread in both ends and a second screw is used to attach it to the case. Some standoffs use the M3 female thread (which faces the motherboard) instead of #6-32 UNC, and on a rare occasion a mixture of types can be used in the same case.

All-metric standoffs are stated as threading x hex length x threaded length. For example, M3 x 10 x 6 means a standoff with M3 male and female threading, 10 mm hex length, and 6 mm threaded length. M6 x 10 x 8 means M6 male and female threading, 10 mm hex length, and 8 mm threaded length. Typically, M2.5 and M3 standoffs tighten with a 5 mm socket, M4 standoffs with a 6 mm socket, M5 standoffs with a 7 mm socket, and M6 standoffs with an 8 mm socket, but this is not always the case.

Version 2.1 of the ATX specification states that the length of standoffs needs to be at least 0.25 inches (6.4 mm), with their cross sections fitting within 0.40 by 0.40 inches (10 mm × 10 mm) square areas centered around each mounting hole on ATX motherboards.[3]

#4-40 UNC thumbscrews[edit]

Pairs of #4-40 UNC thumbscrews are used to fasten certain connectors to hardware ports. The screws are typically located on either side of D-subminiature connectors such as on VGA, serial, parallel and legacygame controller ports. They are also more recently used on DVI connectors. The typical length for a #4-40 screw used in PCs is 3/16 in (0.1875 inches (4.76 mm)). Occasionally the 4-40 hexagonal standoffs come loose when loosening the 4-40 screws to remove a cable, gender changer, or adapter. The 4-40 standoffs typically tighten with a 5 mm or 3/16-inch socket. Care should be taken not to overtighten them as they are somewhat delicate and will snap off at the base with excessive torque.


Steel is by far the most common material used, frequently with a plated or anodized finish. Other materials including brass, aluminum, nylon and various plastics are also used for applications with particular physical or aesthetic requirements.


The #6-32 UNC is a thicker screw with a more coarse thread. This makes it more suitable for fastening larger parts and thicker materials requiring increased holding strength. Its larger size and coarse thread make it easier to work with during assembly, with less risk of cross threading. The integrated flange provides greater holding strength with less risk of pull through. The hex head makes it easier to work with during assembly with powered torque screwdrivers.

The M3 is a thinner screw with a finer thread than the #6-32 UNC. This makes it more suitable for fastening into smaller parts and thinner materials requiring good strength in a limited space. Its size and fine thread make it appropriate for applications where a #6-32 UNC would be excessively bulky without providing any other benefits versus the smaller M3.

  • Close-up of a #6-32 UNC screw with a Phillips pan head, commonly provided in PC cases

  • Thumbscrews from an ATX PC case


A regular computer case may require/include[4]

  • 7 thumb screw 6-32 × 6 mm for 2.5” drive tray, expansion slots
  • 4 hexagon screw 6-32 × 6 mm for psu
  • 21 phillips screw 6-32 × 5 mm for motherboard, 3.5” harddisk tray
  • 12 phillips screw M3 × 5 mm for 2.5” harddrive
  • 16 KB5 x 10 mm for fans
  • 9 standoff 6-32 × 6.5 + 4 mm for motherboard

Screw hp size laptop

The following laptop repair tools will be very helpful if you decide to start a laptop repair business or just repair your own computer. I will talk about tools I am using myself and make some recommendation.

Don’t be cheap with tools because you will be using them on a daily basis. A good quality tool will make the whole repair process much easier and more enjoyable.

Screwdriver sets

A set of good quality precision screwdrivers is must have tools for any laptop repair technician. I found that Wiha makes one of the best screwdrivers available on the market today. Wihas through hardened for best wear resistance and they are made in Germany. I’ve been using the same Wiha set almost every day for over 10 years and they are still like new.

1. Phillips screwdrivers

A good Phillips screwdriver will be your main tool. For laptop repairs you will need three sizes: #1, #0, #00.

You will not be using slotted screwdrivers a lot but you’ll need them once in a while. I would recommend to take a look at Wiha 26197 Slotted and Phillips magnetic screwdriver set.

Wiha 26193 Slotted and Phillips Screwdriver Set

2. Torx screwdrivers

The second set of screwdrivers you’ll be using very often is Torx. Take a look at Wiha 26793 PicoFinish Torx magnetic screwdriver set which has most common driver sizes T1-T8 needed for PC or Mac computer repairs.

For laptops you’ll be using mostly T3, T4, T5 and T6 drivers.

Wiha 26793 PicoFinish Torx driver set

3. Precision screwdriver set

If you prefer to have all most common screwdrivers in one box, you should consider a precision screwdriver set. Wiha 75971 Master Tech micro bit set is a great options. This set comes with a travel case, ESD safe handle and 68 bits hardened for extreme durability.

Wiha 75971 Master Tech Micro Bit 68 Piece Set In Travel Case.

4. Apple MacBook Pro/Air screwdrivers

For Apple MacBook Pro and MacBook Air computers, in addition to Phillips and Torx mentioned earlier, you will need Pentalobe P5 and Try-Wing screwdrivers. Take a look at these screwdriver sets for Apple computers.

Apple Pentalobe and Try-wing screwdrivers

5. Screwdriver magnetizer

Wiha 40010 Magnetizer/Demagnetizer is an optional but very useful tool in your toolbox. A properly magnetized screwdriver will make it much easier to remove tiny laptop screws found in PCs and Macs. Apple is notorious for using very small screws in their laptops.

Wiha 40010 Magnetizer or Demagnetizer


Miscellaneous laptop repair tools

1. Case opening tools

When you disassemble a laptop, very often you have to separate plastic parts or open small connectors.

For example, when you replace the LCD screen, you have to separate the screen bezel from the display cover. When you disassemble the laptop base you have to separate the bottom case from top cover.

Never separate plastic parts with a screwdriver, you can and most likely will damage/scratch the plastic. Using right case opening tools should be a standard procedure.

I would suggest using cell phone case open pry tools. These tools are made of plastic and will not damage your computer case.

A good case opening set will have a few nylon pry tools, few different metal spudgers and set of tweezers.

Laptop case opening pry tools

2. Tweezers

I would like to mention the importance of good, strong needle nose tweezers. You will use them very often and they are very convenient for opening small motherboard cable connectors and fitting small cables into the connectors. Wiha 44501 ESD safe tweezers will be the excellent choice. They made of non-rusting special alloyed stainless steel and designed for all current electronics applications. These tweezers and very strong, very sharp and will last you for a long time.

Wiha 44501 ESD safe needle nose tweezers

3. Screw container and organizer

Being organized is very important while working with laptops. While taking apart an average laptop, it might be necessary to remove 20-30 different screws. Be organized, keep track of screws, make notes. It will make your life much easier during the reassembly process.

A good clear plastic container will be very useful. If you plan to work on multiple projects you will need a few of them. I always have at least 10 empty containers under my bench.

Screw container and organizer

 Electronic measuring instruments

1. Digital Multimeter

A good digital multimeter will help you test AC adapters, troubleshoot failed DC power jack, etc.. Using a multimeter you can test a circuit board or wire for continuity.

I found that Fluke makes one of the most accurate and reliable multimeters available on the market today. A good quality multimeter is not cheap but it will last you a lifetime.

Fluke 117 Electricians True RMS Multimeter would be a great multimeter for most laptop repairs.

2. Multimeter probes and adapters

For component level logic board repairs and troubleshooting you will need extended fine point tip adapter set for your Fluke multimeter. This set will fit on the original factory Fluke probes that came with your multimeter. They will help you to take measurements even on smallest logic board components. 

Fluke 8845A-FEPT extended fine point tip adapter

If you don’t like long fine point adapters, I recommend using these ultra-sharp multimeter tester needle point probes. They replace factory Fluke probes. I like the built quality, the length of the cables, and most importantly, the needle nose probe points.

Ultra-sharp multimeter tester needle point probes


Soldering equipment

If you would like to do a simple failed DC jack repair or dive into more complicated component level logic board repair, you must have a good soldering station. It has to be powerful enough to melt solder without damaging the circuit board.

1. Soldering station

I’ve tried many different soldering irons but found that Hakko FX-951-66 soldering station does the job very well. It heats up quickly and very powerful. Works very well on logic boards with lead-free solder. This station is made in Japan which is very rare these days.

Hakko FX-951-66 soldering station

You will need a good soldering tip for this station. After hundreds hours of soldering I found one tip that fits all my needs and works well for DC jack repairs or component level logic board repairs.

I installed Hakko T15-JS02 Conical Bent Tip a long time ago and never removed it since then.

Hakko T15-JS02 Conical Bent Tip

2. Solder

Kester 63/37 .015 DIA. solder is all I use for my repairs. Rosin core solder is designed for electronic and electrical work. This spool is 1lb and will last you for a very long time.

Kester Solder 63/37 .015 DIA. spool

3. Desoldering hand pump

A desoldering pump is another useful tool you must have for soldering/desoldering jobs, for example for DC jack removals. It will help you to remove large amounts of solder quickly and efficiently.

Edsyn SOLDAPULLT desoldering tool hand pump DS017 is a very good one.

Soldapullt Hand Pump DS017 desoldering tool

4. Desoldering wick braid

For removing small amounts of solder I use desoldering wick braid. It works very well for cleaning thermal pads during logic board component level repairs. Goot Wick desoldering braid is one of the best. Usually I use 2.5mm or 3.5mm braid, either one will work just fine.

5. Solder flux

In my opinion, AMTECH Solder Flux NC-559-V2-TF is the best flux on the US market. It will make any soldering job easy and flawless. With AMTECH flux your soldering job will look professional. Make sure to buy genuine product made in the USA by Inventec Performance Chemicals.There are many fakes out there.

AMTECH Solder Flux NC-559-V2-TF

6. Bench top smoke absorber

If you don’t solder very often, a bench top smoke absorber like Hakko FA400-04 will be sufficient to protect you from soldering fumes. The FA-400 removes soldering smoke and fumes quickly, safely and efficiently.

Hakko FA400-04 Bench Top ESD-Safe Smoke Absorber

7. Stationary fume extractor system

For everyday soldering jobs, you will need something more efficient. This Hakko FA430 smoke absorber station will do the job very well. The Hakko FA-430 fume extraction unit is designed expressly for use at soldering stations, extracting the contaminated air directly at the source. This powerful fume extractor is compact, relatively quiet and easy to maintain.

Hakko FA430-KIT1 Smoke Absorber station

8. Hot air soldering station

A good quality hot air soldering station is an expensive but a very useful tool for many soldering applications. It saves you tons of time while replacing built-in DC power jacks. The hot air station makes it a breeze soldering and desoldering surface-mounted components. If you want to learn how to repair motherboards on component level, this tool is a must. I would love to have a JBC hot air station but currently have a Hakko FR-810B and it works great for me.

Hot air soldering rework station.

9. Kapton tape

A roll of high temperature Kapton tape is a must have item in your laptop repair toolbox. It’s made from a polyimide film with high temperature resistant silicone adhesive. This tape is very useful for securing loose cables, covering internal connectors and masking heat sensitive internal components during soldering process. There are many different sizes available on the market. I use mostly 1/2″ (12mm) or 3/4″ (19mm) tape.

Heat resistant Kapton tape.


You cannot do microsoldering without a good microscope. You don’t need anything fancy, a basic AmScope SE400-Z binocular stereo microscope will be sufficient for most repairs you encounter.

AmScope SE400-Z Professional Binocular Stereo Microscope

Here’s an example of one USB board repairs I did recently. I wouldn’t be able to fix that drive without the microscope and good soldering station. This one USB board repair and data recovery job paid for the microscope!
