    Hey everyone
    My Macbook pro retina bottom case was making a strange noise whenever pressing on the middle part. I read somewhere that the solution is to remove all screws and reinsert them.

    I did remove all screws, but the last one was too tight... Now that screw i damn stripped, i have even ordered a 1.3 mm screw driver, to make up for the bigger hole, but its not helping....

    I just want that screw out, so i can order some new ones.... Is there a solution for stripped screws?

    If you stripped the screw itself, no problem - just get a new screw. If you stripped the thread inside the computer, then uh oh.

    You do know that the new rMBPs and MBAs use that silly pentalobe screw? You need a special screwdriver. A standard phillips will bugger the head up.
