Small problem but I hope someone can help or point me in the direction of a resource to help. I removed the back of a ThinkPad 13 Gen 2 to upgrade the ram. The laptop powered up but no display so I removed the battery to hard reset. It was then that I noticed that all I had to do was remove the connector to the motherboard. When I reinstalled the battery I discovered that one screw was a different length and type. This discovery caused me to examine the case screws where I discovered that a couple of them are a different size also. Does anyone know the positions of the different size screws on both the battery and the case? Or can anyone point me to a url or video that will show this? The videos that I have found simply show where the screws are but do not discriminate where the different size screws go.
Thanks for reading.

2. Usually, a web search for "Thinkpad (insert model here) hardware maintenance manual" yields the correct manual on the first few results, but in your case I had to scroll down a bit, but found in nonetheless:

Improve your google-fu, or use a different search engine.

As far as the screws for the laptop back, I'm pretty sure the two smaller screws go underneath the small rubber grommets.I am waiting to receive a proper laptop tool kit from Amazon tomorrow. I clearly need smaller screwdrivers and proper spudges because I also need to replace the keyboard as my son spilled water on it years ago and stopped using it. The keyboard either does not work or types random characters when you press a key, Also I believe it is supposed to be back-lighted and it is not.
Anyway thanks for the link and sorry for the long rambling post.
