So I was trying to unscrew my hard drive in the second bay to upgrade it, and I accidentally stripped one of the screws. Anyone have any ideas about how to get it out? I have a replacement screw ready, but I urgently need to replace my hard drive, and I'm pretty sure it's not covered under warranty

Cautiously , so that you don't do any further damage to your NB

Thanks for the replies, I really appreciate it! I managed to get the screw off with a pair of long nosed pliers, even though it took a while it paid off. I replaced it with another screw, I guess I'll just have to be be more careful with my screws next time
