    one of the screws on the ram cover of my new 2010 imac won't come out... any ideas? the others did real easy but this one won't budge, i think the it's stripped. i finally just ripped out part of the ram cover so that one screw (very left) is broke off from the rest of the cover since the other screws came out fine..

    it's not noticeable but it's upsetting me. i assume the screw is stripped, any ideas?

    i drilled into the old screw in attempt to remove, it's still stuck up there and i only got the head of the screw off, the body remains in the hole. what a pain in the ass..
