The 7 Best Computer Screw Sets
This wiki has been updated 7 times since it was first published in October of 2019. Whether you’re a computer repair specialist or a regular user who dropped their laptop and needs a quick fix, having an assortment of appropriately-sized screws at the ready is extremely useful. Most devices use the same types of screws these days, so many of the assortments in our selection will work perfectly for a wide variety of laptops, notebooks and desktop machines. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Just a few changes to the Wiki this round. One was upgrading to the 900-piece Co Rode Laptop, to replace the 750-piece option from the same company, which is no longer available. We also added a new #2, the MCSHER M1917. It only has enough pieces for one entire build, but because every single screw is coated in anti-oxidative black paint, owners of fancy RGB systems will appreciate this kit the most.
Otherwise, the most important thing to keep in mind when choosing a computer screw kit is whether you'll be using it primarily for laptop or desktop use. If you need to maintain a large number of desktops, we still recommend the Sutemribor Assortment, and for keeping a fleet of laptops in perfect condition, consider the Co Rode Notebook Computer Kit.

Having an assortment of screws for desktop and laptop computer repairs is absolutely essential for a seasoned tech technician. For everyone else, it’s a convenient purchase that helps to avoid unnecessary trips to repair shops. Each of the products on this list comes with a variety of different screw types that work universally across most devices. They also include several of each type, ensuring you can fully replace all the screws on a single device.
Most of the products on this list have plastic carrying cases with attached guides that explain the sizes of various screws. The Sutemribor 8541677150 even has colored pictures of each part alongside their measurements, to make identification as quick and straightforward as possible. Dividers keep everything organized and prevent different types of screws from mixing with each other during transportation. Some kits like the Co Rode CR150514E118 and Glarks LYSB01GPRLAWS include a Phillips-head screwdriver for added convenience.
Since your laptop may have somewhat specialized parts, it’s important to research the exact screw types that are included with one of these sets. It’s not guaranteed that a kit will have what you’re looking for, even if it has a large variety. These products are most useful when you are doing a full repair or modding and need a lot of common parts.
