ThorsHammer, sorry if I slighted you. I looked through the postings and I may have been confused about the order.
I'd really appreciate that link to the screws. I went to a local computer store and they couldn't find anything like that. Intel should make them available. Lots of people are going to need them.

Unfortunately I don't see a bookmark. The discussion is either in this site or notebookreview.com. I look for it later this evening if you can't find it.
There is a direct link to a site and the correct screws.

Please send it if you can find it. I like the idea of a direct link. I spent about half an hour looking into this and I came up with this:
"9.5mm/7mm drives require M2 3mm screws with an OEM head of less than 3.5mm wide to convert to 7mm height."
I could order screws like that, but I don't quite understand *exactly* which ones are correct. I found a posting on the Intel site about them but it doesn't have a link as to where to buy them and *exactly* which model screws to get.
I hope this helps to jog your memory. You have been *extremely* helpful already.

Sorry for the delays today. I was out running errands most of the day and evening.
M2x3mm OEM Wafer Head
Average Overall Length: 3.52mm
Average Head Width: 2.90mm
Average Head Thickness: 0.62
Thread Pitch: 0.40
This is according to a member at notebookreviews.com. See http://forum.notebookreview.com/lenovo-ibm/647535-intel-520-heads-up.html#post8336178
I have not confirmed this with an order. Looks like you can buy 15 screws for $2.25 USD.

Thank you very much!
You have solved all my problems for this second. <g>
Update to reply: I ordered these screws from laptopscrews.com and they arrived promptly and fit perfectly.
