I need too replace the Case screws for My Evesham Comp, I brought some 32 x 0.25 Phillips Screws from Maplin and they don't fit my case what ones do I need ?

They are usually standard, so case screws from any local supplier - if you have one within reach - should work fine. I can't be sure what size they are though - never had any that didn't fit.

I have the same phillips screws on the other side pannel of my case but on the main side they must be a different fit

If you want and email me by clicking on the envelope next to my name I'll send you a selection of case screws. If you take the screws from the other side and they just whirl round its because they've been overtightened and have stripped the threads. The other solution is to drill a couple of new holes being sure to get rid of any iron fileings that fall in the case because if they land on the motherboard they could cause a short and destroy the motherboard. Email me, I'll send you a selection, god knows there enough of them lying about so I can spare them.
