Default Damaged Panel Screws

Hi

I have some damaged screws on the back of my laptops, that secure the various panel's covering certain components such as the RAM, Hard Drive and processor etc. The + shape of the screw head is damaged too much to use with a regular screwdriver both miniature screwdrivers and the ordinary screwdrivers. Is there any way to remove these screws without damaging the rest of the panels/laptop - the screws themselves don't mater since I'm going to replace them as soon as i get them out

thanks
bryn

you can buy screw extraction kits.

where you drill into the screw to make a special thread and then you use a special bit to remove it they work very well i have one myself.

just be sure to do it very gently as you dont wonna damage your laptop
