    screws fell while replacing fan and heatsink
    Does anyone know of a guide of sorts to tell me what size screws go where when I put this thing back together?

    I would be forever grateful.

    Try the ifixit web site. They have step by step disassembly and assembly instructions for most portable Macs.

    Also try the "powerbook medic" website. Here.

    Where did the screws go when they "fell" / you dropped them?

    Well, they were whisked off the table by the cat. I was able to locate most of them. I may end up buying a kit to put it back together again!

    Thanks for those links, very helpful!

    Yeah...those cats will do that!

    Not sure where you did the work, but if you have a magnet...you could "sweep" the area with it, and maybe you'll find the missing screws.

    Good luck,
