Think of the monitor input on a graphics card... Well, the monitor plug has two little screws, that screw into two threads on either side of the input.
Heres the ridiculous part! The threads on my graphics card are missing! Not the screws, the holes! It happened at some point during house-moving, but in consequence the monitor plug still fits on, but doesnt screw in, so it wobbles about a lot.
So can anybody tell me where I can get new screw-hole from, if at all, and what these thingies are called? (And no, they arent rattling about inside the case, I have checked!)
Are you sure they're not still screwed onto the ends of the monitor cable plug - that's what usually happens if you screw them too tight in the first place.
If they really have gone missing (can't imagine how they could tho?) - then go to a local freindly computer shop, and see if you can scrounge a coule off the back of an old card or port fixing plate - they're bound to have something "throw away" with some left on. I've always got some (but I'm in Spain).
or there will be nowhere for the screw sockets to screw into. They look like a 20p piece about 5 mm across the flats which are themselves 5mm long. This then becomes a thread which screws into the holes in the video card.
