I took apart a laptop to replace the internal cmos battery, so I have several groups of small screws and im not sure what part they will go in. Any suggestions? It looks like a lot would fit in to slot not meant for it.

group them. what do you have? 4 of one type, 5 of another, 3 of something else, etc? how many holes to put the main back cover in place? look at where that would fit and test fit a screw until you match one. now put all of those aside. next piece and remaining screws - what has the most holes? repeat!
