I want to add a second monitor to my computer. I am trying to attach a second monitor to a mount that will be held from my desk. The monitor mount for my new monitor did not include screws to attach the monitor to the 100 mm x 100 mm VESA mount. I need to know what type of screws I will need to go from the monitor to the mount. What type, size, and length of screws will I need to secure the monitor to the mount?
