oh thanks I thought the screw was lost forever
This guide was amazing! I was able to successfully take apart and put together my computer without any issues. However there is a video online which I highly recommend you watch in addition to reading this guide, it just makes this process so much easier.

While on step #6 of putting my laptop back together, I foolishly tried to tilt my laptop so that the screw hole was facing me, and the center screw got sucked into the magnetic vortex, never to be found again. So don't do that.
After taking apart my computer, I discovered that I needed a new Left Clutch Hinge, Rear Display Bezel and Clutch Cover. However, as parts cannot be shipped to my location, I fixed my computer by super-gluing (should have used epoxy 2 ton glue) the broken Clutch Hinges to the Rear Display Bezel and duct-taping the Clutch Cover to the metal frame around the LCD panel as well as the back of the Rear Display Bezel.
