bobbybowls has the Rolls Royce solution. If you have a Halfords nearby, they should sell a set of 8/10 'watchmaker's screwdrivers' for around a fiver. Spade and Philips end - one of them will be fine for what you want to do.

So what is your problem with the question then!

They are numbered, but do not know the size, If you go into Maplins you will see some on the Tools section

Thanks cymro, didn't see the need for him to take the mick. I just wanted help.

Please dont take offence at someone having a laugh at what seems an obvious answer.

When I last looked this forum was called the Helproom.

buel wanted to know the correct name for the screwdriver that he needs for a specific part on a specific manufacturer's laptop. He gave all of the information needed and even ventured that it was a small phillips.

The correct answer is a #1 Phillips screwdriver.

Beta did not give the correct answer, just attempted to ridicule someone asking for help.

It could have been a torq driver or a pozidrive screwdriver that was needed. Different manufacturers use different type and the type needed can change depending upon the specific component.

buel, I didn't see the need for Beta to take the mick either.
