Something else you might try is check and see if a thick washer (or two) of some type under the head of the screw would shorten/raise the screw enough so that it would be impossible for the tip of screw to touch anything inside the monitor.
Taking you back to Post #2. So many monitor stands are proprietorial to the monitor, hence, best available from the actual manufacturer. The seller can make more money selling the 2 individually, particularly when the stands are hard to come by.
thanks for all of that info but I've actually just bought some more screws which might work - I measured the depth of the hole which ahem I didn't do before ahem so, hopefully, that'll make a differene!
I'd got a 20mm screw before and now I've ordered a 14mm screw.
