Computer Repair Screwdrivers?
« on: May 24, 2020, 12:03:37 AM »
I am getting ready to redo an Acer Nitro 50-600 at has given me trouble with its power supply since Day 1; as well as overhaul an older Asus M32CD  to make it perform similarly to the purpose-built gaming Acer.   I am getting ready to order a few Wiha and/or Wera drivers in the sizes that I will need. 

I am wondering--should I just order screwdrivers in the same selection as my Victorinox Cybertool 34 has onboard, or are there any others? It looks like the drives may have to come out to get some cables in.

There are certainly many others beyond the Cybertool. Typical sets of 4mm precision screwdriver bit usually have anywhere from 30 to 100 bits. The real question is which ones do you need? I usually get most things done with the usual suspects of flat, cross, hex, torx and safety torx. But if the manufacturers don't want just anyone to open what they assembled something more exotic might be needed? (Pentalobe, Torx Plus, Triangle, Square, 2 pin etc)
