Gameboy Advance SP - Screw Sizes


I am trying to build a Gameboy Advance SP.

I do not want to use the triwing screws that come with it because they are very shallow and round off the end of my screwdriver. I would like to install all Philip's or Cross head screws of the same size into the system. Thread pattern is not important since I'm using a brand new shell housing

I can measure the size of the screws, but I'm unfamiliar with screw size categories and the various head types, etc. If anyone is aware of where I can get this information or can provide any help at all, I would greatly appreciate it!

Thank you.

@raellz ,Dustin, I believe the link below will help as it list the screw size in the tear down guide and link to a site selling screws. What you may also be able to do is pop into a local cell phone/computer repair shop and match your old screws to some of their excess supply(they may just give them to you), use a set of verniers if you have to, to measure for correct size. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
