So upon installing my new motherboard, I realize that for whatever reason, only the screw on the outside were lining up correctly. So I have 4 screws all on the outer rim of the motherboard installed, but not any of the others. 

 

Is it safe to stand my PC upright, or should I just keep it laid on its back?

 

Thank you.

Maje sure you are powered down look at the screw patterns again, you should have several.  Only time that I run into an unlike pattern is when the case is meant to house another type board.

I checked again, they are all just the TINIEST bit off, but I really can't get to them. The boards seems pretty secure though, but I don't want to risk anything by putting it upright.

I have a hunch you may not have all the stand offs in place, or you tightened a few screws and no the board won't move.  You need to get all started but lose once all are in go around and do all then.

What is the make and model of the motherboard and the case?
