    I'm trying to install memory but for some reason none of the screws save for two will actually unscrew. Is there a certain order I should be unscrewing these or are they known to be extremely tight? I feel like either the screw or screwdriver is going to break.

    I couldn't find anything on this in a search or apple's support so I apologize if this has been covered ad nauseam somehow.

    3 of the 4 top edge screws are much longer than the rest, but they should all be the same tightness and unscrew in any order.

    Are you using one of those tiny metal jewellers type screwdrivers? You probably won't get enough torque using a thin one.
