    Stripped Screw on Motherboard

    How can I remove this piece of shit? There's no grip on it. Are there stores that can remove stripped screws? Can't find any screw extractors at home and I don't want to use a drill or hammer on a motherboard.

    Bit blurry but...

    Yeah it's not a cross anymore.

    Doubtful
    The only way i can see is using a small drill tip to drill into the screw and extract it either that or get some pliers and try that

    Get a pliers and just twist it off with pliers.

    Some friends recommended me that, don't see how that works though.

    Oh I was thinking it had some sort of head. How stripped is the screw?

    You can pick up a stripped screw removal kit at virtually any hardware store.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    I tried using a flat head, the flat head would turn but the screw wouldn't, the cross is now more like a demented circle.

    Not sure then bro. You can try a flat head, it might work.

    Not sure if this will work but get the tubing from a bike tire and cut a patch big enough to cover the screw head. Then try unscrewing it.

    Might work.
    Oh hai der.

    Yeehaw
    U GOTTA BE HELLA STOOPS TO STRIP A SCREW THAT BAD IN THE FIRST PLACE.

    Just saying.

    I'd drill it, but then again I'm not an expert in stripping screws or removing stripped screws.

    Twist it out with a very high powered magnet.

    Take a flat head, take a hammer, make a new grip, then gently turn it. Don't break the motherboard tho
