    stupid laptop part

    So my laptop has the 4 small black circles that each of the corners of my laptop. One of mine has come unfixed from my laptop, and lost. It is kind of driving me nuts as it make my laptop a little unbalanced. Where does one get new ones, and is there a technical name for them?

    I know dumb question . . .

    Re: stupid laptop part

    You probably could find something similar in your hardware store of choice. I've found similar for cabinet doors but I don't remember in what section they were in.

    Re: stupid laptop part

    I just use those felt-type cushion pads they sell for furniture feet, like the little round ones you can stick on the bottom of dining room chairs or couch feet so you don't scrape the floor when you slide them.
