Its not really the wrong screw driver its the fact sometimes they got lock tight and they take a extreme amount of force and you end up rounding off the screw. I found using pliers to help turn the screwdriver while apply down pressure helps.

I used a power drill to get the screw out. I had to buy the smallest bit i could find, and had to be VERY careful that i didn't drill too deep.

If you've stripped a Phillips screw it becomes a Robertson and you can get it out with that. Do you have one small enough lying around?

Two other options that I have used to get small screws out are:

1. Take a dremel tool and cut the head of the screw across it to make a slot in it and use a common screwdriver to carefully remove it. Takes good nerves and patience.

2. Place the board somewhere warm (approx. 100 degrees) for an hour or so. Then take an ice cube and hold the point of it against the screw for a few seconds. Try to only cool the screw and not the surrounding board too much. Then take a pair of pliers and grip the screw and try to remove it.
Sometimes the thermal difference will shrink the screw just enough to make it break free.

If you can grip the screw with pliers and tap the pliers with a small hammer (NOT hard) sometimes this will help break the bond and let the screw come out as well if it happens to have lock tight on it.

Good Luck

I HAD SAME PROBLEM AND WILL TELL YOU WHAT I DID. Sorry trying to get your attention so i can help . Ok I did the same thing to my gtx 480's and they don't really make extractors small enough for those kind of screws, pliers I doubt would help. What I did was drilled onto the heads of the screws until they broke of from the shaft. Once you do that the stock heatsink will separate from the board. Just make sure you dont slip when drilling or you will have a good chance of damaging the board.

EDIT: The reason I wouldn't do pliers is as you said the screws are extremely small and there is no way you will get a decent grip, so I really wouldn't even go for that.

Invest in a nice micro screwdriver set for the future.
