Exclamation Screwing In Motherboard, Screws not fitting

When im screwing in my motherboard... Some screws dont go in tightly. I already have like 4 or 5 in tight. Should i just not screw in those ones?

you can probably get away with the corners and a center screw.

Make sure you are using the right size screws. Alot of times, they include screws for the drives which are smaller than the motherboard hold down screws.

Yeah thats my problem, but i dont guess it matters too much. Just to hold the mobo in place, i have 4 of them in tightly.
