Help! Standoff stuck in motherboard!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone.

I was building my first ever PC, but when I screwed in a screw in a standoff, it suddenly came off and now this happens. (See images)

What do I do??

Thanks in advance,

A very frustrated PC builder

It also looks like you are using a screw that is slightly too big for the standoff. Just saying so that you hopefully don't do it again.
