What kind of screws you need to have on an A2000 case so that they would hold? Your regular PeeCee screws just slip on the threads.

PC regular screws work fine here. The ones with both Phillips and hex catches. I used chromed ones to best looking.

there are 2 kinds of PC screws the ones which you use in CD drives (fine thread) and the ones you use with harddrives (rough thread)

Probably you are using the fine threaded for CD drives, if that is so, try the rough threaded ones, or the other way around

Standard PC screws will not do. The A2000 (case!) screws are actually M size screws, can't remember exactly if they are M2 or M3.

Thanks Tahoe! I've tried all kinds of PeeCee screws, so that was my impression too that they wouldn't do.
