Hey guys (I posted this on /g/ as well),

My brother just bought a new laptop (y50)and asked if he could use one of my ssd's. I cloned his hdd for him using the enclosure I brought with me.

He said he would install it himself while I went to go run some errands and ended up stripping one of the screw heads on the case of the laptop even though the screwdriver he used worked with the other ones. I have tried the rubber band trick, but it didn't work. Do you guys have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

you can drill the head off. or if it has a hard drive flap you lift out the flap to put tension on the screw and then try screwing it out, i of course dont know anything about the screw you're trying to get at because theres no pic.

also dremel and make a flat notch for a flat screwdriver

Hey sorry for the bad picture quality this is the best i could do without my digital camera (my phone has a crap camera). I don't know how he got the scratch on this considering he used a philips, unless he used a flat head too. As you can see it's sorta flush with the case itself. I wanted to kinda pry inderneath and see if i could get some needle nose pliers to grab on. that didn't work.

That is a M2.0 x 5.0mm screw.
It's what you're going to want to buy to replace it.
