I am having a hard time unscrewing a screw that is stuck on my mid 2010 macbook 2.4hgz the screw is to get the hard drive out and replaced with a new upgraded hard drive and I tried many manual screw drivers but the screw dose not come out so I wanted to know if I could use a power screw driver?

Not a good idea. When you say it don't come out do u mean u can't turn it or it's just spinning??

The screw would not even turn (on one side) the other screw works perfectly without problems. I am using the right screw driver. It's the screw that holds the hard drive in place.

6 Loosen, but do not remove, 2 screws from the hard drive bracket. Remove hard drive bracket and put it aside.
Note: The top of the hard drive bracket has a long EMI gasket, not shown. Do not remove it.
