The Hardware Maintenance Manual lists M2. × 6.5 mm, flat-head, nylok-coated screws, but those are for the fan & heatsink assembly.  I assume you are looking for the screws that hold just the fan itself.  For those screws there is nothing documented in the manual.  Unless someone stops in on this discussion with better information, I would suggest you visit a local computer repair shop.  They should be able to match the screw for you.

Are you sure those are the same screws that came out of those holes?  If they are, the threading in the holes maybe stripped and that is the reason the screws are not tightening down now.  If they are stripped you might check with a local computer repair shop and see if they will re-tap the holes for a slightly larger screw.  An alternative would be to just buy a used heatsink assembly off of eBay or Amazon.
