How do I remove a spinning screw from my laptop?
You can try putting a rubber band in between the screw and the screwdriver and see if that gets you enough of a grip to loosen the screw. If that doesn’t work, you can try super gluing the screwdriver to the screw, waiting a few minutes for it to harden, then seeing if you can unscrew it that way.
How do you remove a screw that turns but doesn’t come out?
Put the tip of a flathead screw driver (or anything firm and flat) behind the screw-head, and while you unscrew with a screwdriver, pull the screw head toward you, helping the screw to back out as you’re turning the driver. (Sue, I think this method will work best for you.)
