This may be a dumb question, but what kind of screws did the 5150 case use? My 5150 seems to be missing almost all the screws that hold the lid on the case.

Also, I just put a full height hard drive in one of the empty bays, but it also came with no screws. What kind of screws do I use to bolt the hard drive in?

I think those had the same threading as common clone case screws but with a smaller head.

There was some discussion about that in this thread:

Any kind of clone or XT clone? I have what I think is a 386 clone here that still has its screws.
