No, really, I do!

I dropped my O2 XDA Exec (HTC Universal) and the screw holding the screen hinge to the body sheared and the screen is now dangling on the ribbon cable assembly. Also the smaller of the two ribbon cables that is connected to a small PCB in the hinge itself came away from the PCB. However, the device seems to be working perfectly OK!

So, number one and most importantly, I need the screw; does anyone know where I can get one from?

Number two, what does that small PCB in the hinge do? The cable is no longer connected to it but the device is working perfectly OK. How come? Is the ribbon cable really a ribbon cable or is it just a multi-strand single wire that I can just solder back onto the PCB? I can't tell from looking at it.

Oh come on, you could've put a little effort into that joke. Something like, "Aren't there websites for that?" or "You know theres a section of Craigslist just for that need".
