Lenovo Ideapad 500-15ISK Laptop - Screws Exact Specification 

Pls someone could specify which exact screws are used in this laptop.

I have gone through manual and it says everywhere 

M2.5 × 6 mm, Phillips-head
M2 × 3 mm, Phillips-head,
M2 × 6 mm, Phillips-head

But when i try to find online on eBay I see that even Phillips head are of many types like pan head, flat head, wafer head etc etc

Now I am confused and dont want to order wrong product.

Kindly could someone specify when it is said for example M2.5 × 6 mm, Phillips-head

which specific model head is being referred?

You would be best to look at several of the screws you're considering buying and then looking at the various head configurations.


See this site, http://www.laptopscrews.com/Zinc%20Assortments.htm, which has a huge assortment of types and the page I've given has photos showing what a pan head versus a flat head versus a wafer head look like.


Depending on exactly where these screws are located, and I can't know that, you could be using any of those three types.  Pan heads seem to be the least frequently used, but they are around occasionally.


You already have the correct information regarding thread pitch and length, just look at the head style for the screws you need and you'll know what to order.
