Jeweller's screwdrivers?

by SKDTech In reply to Laptop Hard Drive

if it looks like +, that makes it a phillips head. Are you doing this for display purposes? Otherwise if it was working before then it is now going to be unrecoverably contaminated if you are doing what I think you are.

You need a Driver set like the one here

They are Jewelers Screwdrivers and if there is a Cross Slot in the screw it is a Phillips. These small Screws can not be a Posidrive which looks similar to a Phillips Screw but have a slightly different cut out inside the screw for better driving/location of the Screwdriver.

I also agree with the above if you are planning to use this for display there will be no problems but if you think you can repair it you are sadly mistaken as any dust or grit that enters the drive will destroy it when you apply power next time. You need to work on these in a Class 1 Clean Room or a Lama Flow Cabinet to prevent anything getting inside the drive.
