Small screw stripped on 260

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am trying to remove the plastic cover with is connected to the heatsink. I have the right size screw drive but the 2 last screws are stuck and i stripped them trying to get them out. They are VERY SMALL. So what did you do when you ran into this problem? Keep in mind that they are very small.

I hate stripped screws

Your only hope is some type of screw extractor...that can be found at pretty much any type of home improvement type stores. Good luck.

Some info on how they work.
