anyone know what type of screw this laptop uses and where I can get them?

I went to update my laptop with a bigger hard drive, 500 gig hard drive. I opened up the case and found one hard drive bay missing a hard drive bracket. So I went back to the computer repair shop where I had my laptop serviced (they removed a bad 300 gig hard drive and failed to return the drive back to me when I picked the laptop up) and told them about the missing part. They went in the back with my laptop and found the missing part that fit. Upon installation of the new hard drive, I found I was missing a bunch of screws and ended up cannabalizing couple of screws from the hard drive cover of the back of the laptop case. 6 screws missing.

You can order an assortment of laptop screws from Ebay here. (http://www.ebay.com/itm/110912953774?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1497.l2649)

I bought a set of them just to replace some missing screws from my Dell notebook's hdd door. They might come in handy for other jobs as well. :o
