Z570 HDD/Memory cover screws

Hello everyone,


I have the Z570 (i3, 8GB, gt520) and so far it is an excellent laptop.  I went to upgrade the hard drive from 500GB to 1TB and when I screwed the case back on, i noticed the screws had degraded significantly.  I then tried to unscrew the screws and it was very difficult.  Why do the screws degrade so quickly and where can I get some more?

Re: Z570 HDD/Memory cover screws

A quick look online and I found this.  It says the screws should only be used once.  This is from the hardware manual for the Z570.
