Hello today ive got my two new m2 ssds.
First bad thing was that i could not find the suitable screws.
Ive found some in my company. but i wasn sure if they are suitable.
The first ssd was easy.
But the second one broke up the standoff.
What can I do now?

What are the suitable screws and how do i fix the broken standoff?

Sry for my bad english im German.

From what i remember all screws are included and must be somewhere in the small bag inside the box. If something is missing you shoould report this to the shop where you've bought the motherboard and return it back.

Looks to me that the threaded part of the stand off is broken and is still in the motherboard.I would carefully try and remove the broken part from the MB using a sharp pointed tool such as a very small jewelers screwdriver or suchlike. Another stand off would most likely have to come from Asrock.

Definitely, remove the MB so that you can work from both sides.I am not sure what the stand off are made of, but the seem to be very soft, so work carefully when removing the broken thread piece.Good luck.
