L420 Screws Missing?



When opening my L420 to install an additional 4 GB memory module, I noticed that there are two places where there could be screws but there are none, marked with red arrows in the below image. Are these screws missing intentionally or have they been forgotten?

I don't have a similar model to look at, but they could be the bottoms of fittings that receive screws from above

Re: L420 Screws Missing?

No, these screws aren´t missing. The are not there on my L520 too.

Re: L420 Screws Missing?

No, these two are not part of the screws that are removed when removing the bottom cover. The bolts below hold the mainboard, but the plastic of the cover just sits above, and there could be screws, so I was wondering why there are none.
