While swapping out the HD for an SSD on an iMac 21.5 2010, a small magnet fell out and I have no idea where it goes back. The magnet is round and about 4mm in diameter. Any ideas?

Welcome to our forums.

The magnet may be one of several that holds the screen in place. However, to make sure, go to the ifixit web site and look up the take apart instructions for your particular iMac.
