What screwdriver is standard?

Go to solution Solved by tatte,

Take a couple of screws with you and buy the cheapest fitting screwdriver with magnetic tip you can find. I personally use a combination of a Phillips head and a flat head screwdrivers, the flat head handles anything the Phillips one doesn't quite fit properly.

 

Here's the one Linus uses, if you want to go all out instead.

I have built PC's before with my dad's screwdrivers but I don't know what any of them are called, nor do I know a thing about screwdrivers. I've looked EVERYWHERE, only finding old threads, most are un solved. Everyone just says "Phillips". I think it was JaysTwoCents or someone that said Phillips 2 screwdriver, so I bought ONE for $14 and most PC screws are too small. If I search all I see are iFixIt and pricision screwdrivers and phone repair tools with like a million pieces for $20. Hope someone will answer this once and for all. Thanks!

A flathead is... well it's flat. A phillip's is the x looking one, and that's all you need to build a computer.

But there are different sizes.

pretty much all screws are philips, id just get a small kit of them because then you will never not have what fitts. most larger philips tips go into most smaller than it philips heads

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
