Today I took my old Sony laptop apart for the first time to see what was inside. In doing so I dropped a small screw into it and it rolled under something, and now it won’t come out. The screw was not very important (I think), but I’m wondering what the chances are that it could harm whatever it landed on. I dropped it between the hard drive and the CD-ROM. My guess is that it’s sitting on the motherboard, or the modem, or the sound card, or something similar.
Now I know that I could disassemble the entire computer, but I don’t feel like doing that, so I am asking you people instead. Could this be a problem?
And I am sorry if this is a stupid question. I’m a software guy, OK?
