You just killed your card! I did that once, knocked of a couple transistors(little square thingy's) while trying to install a aftermarket cooler and my card was dead. Luckely I took it back to the retailer and said it dont wrork, and two weeks later I got a replacement. C'mon, A Drill? Seriously man..I have opened tons of cards but a drill? Next time use a long and big butt screw driver or a wrench attachment.

Looks like its RMA time.

its a little drill and yes when a screw is stripped how else am i suppose to get it out when i dont have the other tools to fix it plenty of people have recommended it and i have done it before but not with these really crappy bits and is there a way to buy some and re solder them on?

and to people that RMA stuff that they broke i dont like to do that since it was my fault so lets try to keep RMA out of the question

Use a long Screw Driver with a big butt and keep applying plenty of torque without trying to screw / move it much. Alternatively use a wrench attachment. Thats what I do. Not a Drill man.

Maybe, but not by you. Always use the proper sized screwdriver for the screw head. For future reference you can also try freezing the card inside of a ziplock bag before you remove the screws.

kinda hard to do that when you dont have the exact screwdriver in your possession and the screw driver worked for all the other screws

and to stay on topic here id like to know if this is fixable
