Inspiron 14z, a 14-incher with a slimmed-down aluminum body, available in a surprisingly staid color palette. For 2012, Dell had updated the 14-inch Inspiron 14z with Intel's 3rd Generation Core Series processor and a brand new design that's thin and light enough to make the system an Ultrabook.

Any idea what screws the hard drive caddy uses?

I need to find four screws for the hard drive caddy in a Dell Inspiron 14z. I was wondering if anyone knows what size screws are used? Perhaps M2 x 3mm?

Is this a good question?

Success!! M2 x 3mm works for three out of the four holes. That's enough to keep the caddy in place!

Thanks! I just ordered a few, I'll post back here when I receive them to confirm if that works. Thanks again.


Sounds good, let us know.


Sad to say the M3 are too large around to fit, I've ordered some M2 screws and will update when I get them.
