    I am trying to get those little screws out the bottom of my computer so I can install some RAM. Trouble is I don't have a screw driver that small and I'm having a hard time locating one in a retail store. What type of screw driver is it? Links to places I can order it from would be greatly appreciated.

    Go to Sears or Home Depot, or something similar. In the tool sections they have small jeweler tools. It's nothing more than a small Phillips Head screw. Nothing fancy. Radio Shack may even have a small PC tool kit with the correct size...

    Husky sells a number of good small screwdrivers.

    walmart also sells small jewelers screwdrivers (tool section, craft section), lowes (tools/electrical repair section), home depot (tools/electrical repair section), etc actually many places sell them. I've even seem them at autozone (small store, just gotta look) and walgreens (household area).

    doesn't have to be a 'jewelers' screwdriver, a regular one with a small enough head will work.

    You might want to look for something like NewerTech's 7-piece tool kit: http://www.newertech.com/products/7pctoolset.php

    They're out of stock in the company store and OWC, but lots of sites carry them (and I'm positive that they buy them from an OEM supplier, though I can't remember what the name of the company is).
