Replacing light fixture and box holes not matching up to the fixture
 
I have all my wiring done on the new light fixture. But I went to screw the base piece in and the screw holes on the electrical box don't match up the the holes on the light base. I can get one side lined up and then the other is about a 1/4 of an inch off. I don't know what to do..

And without a picture no one here will know either.

What type of box is in place? and what type of fixture hardware did the fixture come with?

Did the light kit come with a mounting bracket that mounts to the ceiling box?
