I'm putting together my first build right now. I've attached 7 of the 8 screws to mount the DVD drive into my case. As I was screwing in the 8th, the head of the screw suddenly broke off. The screw itself is fairly deep in and can't be removed. (It's about as deep as it would be had I managed to finish screwing it in.)
Will this cause problems? Can I just ignore the broken screw and keep the DVD drive in there?
the olny issue you have is if the drive is bad or goes bad is removing the screw to pull the drive out. the easy fix is go to an auto parts store and pick up a tap set. just put a napkin or paper under the cd-rom to catch the metal shavings. tap the screw and pull it out.
