So I decided to clean the fan on my mum's laptop, because I don't want to be using some dusty trash.

And, once I successfully got some dust out it was time to put the screws back on. This one hole, I tried swapping screws too, would keep whatever screw is in it spinning. Never went in.

I had to get the unlucky screw into a small bag and store it away, and another screw which looks like the odd one out for sure went in and worked.

So, tl;dr I likely voided a warranty replacing a screw.

    Sounds stripped.
    That happens, and it sucks.

    @Root if only they supplied extras with the laptop, like how you get a bag of buttons with some clothes.

    On the plus side, I think I found space for a small drive :D
