Where to find...

a very hard to find screw? I need a couple 2.5 X 20mm phillips screws and I have exhausted every possibility I could think of for places to find them. They are to hold together a dell inspiron laptop. Any help would be appreciated.

I haven't called dell just yet because I didn't feel like calling Pakistan if I could find them local! Any specific computer shop? tried lowes no dice.

Yes, but the tech support is outsourced to India. No sense waiting on the phone for 3+ hours to try and talk to someone you can't understand, nor can they understand you, just to get frustrated and not get anywhere because they don't know that all you want is to see if they have replacement screws, so they finally decide to transfer you to an actual Dell employee, which you couldn't get to before because they don't publish their direct numbers to the public, to wait another 3+ hours for someone to pick up and finally ask if you can get some replacement screws.
