    Does anyone know the specs of, or where I can buy replacement screws and the little locking washers that supposedly keep them from falling out? I was taking off my cover plate earlier to put a new Micro SD card in, and one of the screws and its washer just fell out. I found the screw but the washer is still missing.

    That helps a lot. I was able to fix it, but it's good to know what to look for if it ever happens again. Thanks!
