Netbook wouldn't charge, Acer kept screws

    My Acer netbook would not charge, even with the charger plugged in. I had
    it repaired under warranty. Now everything is good.

    Except: I took the hard disk out because they warn that they may (most
    likely will) erase the disk. I left the teeny tiny screws in the netbook.
    Big mistake! It came back without them. I put the hard disk back in and
    the netbook runs fine. However I cannot mount it properly because a couple
    of these screws are missing.

    I have checked everywhere - Fry's, the Geek Squad, every repair place I can
    think of. All the screws they have are too fat. My calls to Acer fall on
    deaf ears.

    Ideas, anyone? TIA, Paul

    Thanks, Paul. Did you need to get a return shipping authority and if so,
    how did you obtain it?

    Went to their home page and then to support. Supplied the info and they
    verified ownership, but the warranty is expired. Didn't realize I had it
    that long.

    Plan B: Requested an iPad for Fathers Day. <grin>
