Well, I have a ATi Radeon X1600Pro and I have been having some problems with it so I am just going to send it back and hopefully get a replacement from ATi. HOWEVER, due to overheating problems I decided to install a custom fan on it, which worked somewhat nicely, but in order to prevent them from knowing I voided the warrenty by doing so I need to put the stock fan back on.

Now the problem is I lost 2 of the screws that mount the fan on the board and I am having the time of my life trying to find replacements. I search at a couple of computer stores but to no avail , as on the interent here too.

Any suggestions?

(BTW I love this forum design, well done!)

They're likely metric screws, that's usually the sticking point in finding them. I keep a box of metric screws handy. Whenever I get a dead disk drive or other device with metric hardware, I take the screws and nuts and toss them in the box. It's been handy a number of times. :)
