I dropped a screw or other component into the case and now I can't find it anywhere
Explanation: You have dropped a screw or another component into the case.
Diagnosis: This usually happens by working over the open case. It can also be the result of using incorrect tools.
Warning: If the system is
on, turn it off, unplug it, and do not operate the system until you find whatever you
dropped. Any metal components dropped into the PC could potentially short out part of
the motherboard or other components and seriously damage your system.
