Help with the screws

I have the same stupid problem with my powerbook g4 late 2005, after replacing the hard disk, ALL the screws did get in their spots, accept for the 4 long ones on the back of the machine, and no i didn't miss, the screws that won't go in are the ones that came from these holes! I don't know why this is a problem, i don't even understand what is wrong with it, i can screw 1 of the 4 completely in, and this in the 4 holes . . . The other ones just go in a lil bit and then they get stuck and won't go in all the way, and since these screws are structurale i really want to get this screws back in, but i don't know how! PLEAS HELP ME OUT HERE!!!

I changed this from an answer to your own question because you added it to an entirely different machine. The next thing you need to do is correctly identify which machine you have so we can get on the same page in the correct guide. Would you get the Axxx number and the EMC number located in the battery compartment. Some are on the sidewall of the battery compartment.

The modelnr is A1138 and the EMC is 2076

Here is a guide that will walk you through which screws go where. I suspect you have put screws into the holes on the logic board in the wrong places and have blocked the long screws going in because you filled the holes already. I've done this myself when installing a logic board and not looking at the guide.

There is 1 screw of the 4, that does fit in each hole, i did follow the guide step-by-step, and i am confident that the holes are empty, since this 1 screw does fit in every hole, but the other 3 wont fit in any hole, and they are not damaged because i checked them all 3 with the 1 screw that does fit under a magnifeing glass (sorry for my english, i speak Dutch), and the screws look exactly the same, no difference what so ever, so why would this 1 screw go into every single hole, and the other 3 don't . . . They stick out and they scratch my table . . .

Which guide are you following and what step are you at? Please give the length and type of screws you are using in mm.
