I have an ACER Aspire 5 A514-54. After like 2 weeks of having it, screws started randomly dropping out every now and then. Am down like 4 or 5 screws at this point, and the corner of my laptop is beginning to open up. I need to buy replacements but dont know which screws fit it. Also, theres something inside the laptop, when I move it around I can hear something moving inside.
You can order screws from Amazon. The problem is finding the proper size. If you have a repair shop near by, they probably have a stock of screws. If you can find the service manual for your machine (many are available on line), it may list the sizes. Also, I have seen some machines that have the sizes stamped on the back cover.
If you can hear something rattling around inside, that could be a problem if it's metal. If it follows against a chip and shorts something out, that could be bad.
