Inspiron 15 Gaming 7577 Replacement Keyboard/Screw Question

So I have a Inspiron 15 Gaming 7577 and my keyboard is all wonky. The W, S, 4 keys will not work sometimes and I have to spam it to get it to start registering again(will crap out again which results in more spamming). Im assuming I need a new keyboard and was wondering if the part im going to buy on Amazon is the correct part.

 

I also have some stripped screws I had removed that need to be replaced replaced and just wanted to make Dell doesnt use some wonky screw types that have the same name as the ones im looking at. The screws in question are the m2.5x6 screw for the computer base and the m2x3 screw for the wireless card.

 

Links to the parts in question will be posted below. Will there be any issues if I buy these parts to repair my laptop?

The screws should work fine. Make sure you use the exact length screw as the one you take out.

1mm too long can ruin whatever is behind it. Ive seen people put screws through their screen. 

 

The keyboard is listed by the seller for you machine so i would eyeball it and as long as it looks correct in the pictures also, you should be fine.

Like @cr8tor said, screws should be fine. Only two things to note is the screws may be what ground the part to the case, so check to see if the screw will short on a multi meter or not, and if it does make sure not to use a painted or anodized screw. Secondly, the wrong length screw can and will destroy PCB's very easily, if you're not 100% on the length just screw it in very lightly and very slowly, and stop if you feel any kind of resistance.

Searching through the comments on Amazon a few people said the screws in question were oxidized not painted. No clue if they were anodized though. Is this is fine? Any way I can tell if its anodized?

 

And the main screw I need to replace secures the wireless card to the mobo but also secures the mobo to the section where I can access the keyboard.

Looking at the amazon listing, they should be fine. It lists them as steel alloy and they do not look to have any paint on them in the pictures. They are nice and shiny, likely anodized which is fine.

Just make sure its the same length as what came out. Size matters critically at this point.

Guess ill place them side by side before I put the new screw in(since I still have the stripped screw). Dont actually own a ruler somehow but the screw is small(smaller than my pinky nail)

put the old one upside down on the table put a new one next to it, lean down and look at them from the side.

1mm difference should be noticeable.

If you maybe have bad eyesight, seek help. 🙂

Good luck and you are welcome.

And keep in mind how small these screws are, they dont take much force to secure tightly.

Most PC components small electronics screws can be overtightened by hand.
