    I was trying to do a memory upgrade the other day, and tried to take the wrong screw off. I went to try to screw it out, but the screw stripped. How can I get this thing removed and replace it with a new one? Or should I just take it to the local genius bar?

    You could drill the screw out, but be sure to mask everything off to prevent metal shavings from getting lodged in the wrong place and causing a short.
