Windows 7: Finding replacement screw for ngtx460 fan mount.

Finding replacement screw for ngtx460 fan mount.

First off, apologies ff this is the wrong board for this post. I figured I had a problem with a graphics card, and should post it here. Overclocking and case mods may be more appropriate, possibly?
Anyway, I was cleaning the dust from the fan and heat sink on my n460gtx Cyclone. I wasn't being particularly careful and managed to loose one of the small screws that holds the fan to the heat sink. I'm guessing it fell between gaps in the flooring. So now I have 2/3 screws, and don't really want to run the card with only 2 holding the fan down as its likely to cause a whole lot of noisy vibration. I'm thinking I might have to start visiting some computer repair stores in the hope they have a similar screw, or as a last resort email MSI customer service or even just make do with 2/3 screws.

It will be fine with 2 tight screws. In the meantime, also check your local goodwill. I`m serious, I used to rip apart and build them computers. They get tons of old parts.
