Identify screws for Monitor Vesa mount - what type to buy?

Hi,
Different question. I need to identify what type of screns I need to buy. I am mounting a Samsung monitor onto a monitor arm. However I had new screws and when I remove the Samsung monitor from it's arm it only has. So I need another 2.

I know little about screws but I have attached a pciture of one of them sitting on a DVD case.

Can anyone help me identify what type of screw I need to buy.
I need to do this this weekend to finish an office setup and I'm in the UK (I'm hoping any hardware store or perhaps Maplin will have some).

I don't have long to buy so any help GREATLY appreciated.

Note the mount is using 100mm Vesa standard mount.


Thanks

take the screw with you down to B&Q/ScrewFix/Any other hardware store, and they should have a screw that matches the measurements.

shocker!, hope it works for you, if all else fails do you know the manufacturer for the vesa mount? would be worth shooting them an email over with the info, and see if they can point you in the right direction.

good luck.
