    I have a Macbook Pro and one of the three screws wont turn, don't know the english term for that but it's like it's round inside so that it wont turn.

    Anybody who has some good advice for me?

    Is it stripped or broken?

    take it to the apple store because a stripped screw is very hard to get out of the threads

    In the great white north
    You could try to glue a small piece of metal bent in an L-shape (maybe small allen wrench) to the head. wait till dry and try to turn the screw. Some of the screws are small!
    Good luck.

    It may be what is called a torx screw, if so perhaps a visit to your local hardware store is the next step. probabaly a # 6 or 8. I got a decent set of various small drivers with a extension handle at RS.
