    Mate no insult intended but its obvious you are not handy with tool, you might want to step back and ask a friend to do it for you . Extractor don't need to be hammered in,its rotation force only. Reason i recommended the dremel was its the easiest that wont create to much metal shaving. Drilling out the head of the screw is another option but again will create tons of shaving. Heck i even did use jb weld in a pinch before to glue a second screw on top of the other one .

    Maybe I should XD.

    By the way, I thought you would use it with a hammer because I thought it is an impact driver. But it seems like you just push it down and then turn it. Ok then.

    The M2 screws have Loctite on them which makes it very difficult to turn. Don't know why they did this. They can be loosened up with heat (hair dryer or soldering iron if you're careful). Once heated up they turn easily.

    Oh, intersting. But to turn my rounded out screw I'd still need tome tool like iFixit precicion screws to grap it, right?

    Can I damage some electronics around the M.2 slot when I put a hair dryer right infront of it? These things get quite hot.

    Thanks for your tip!

    Oh my god, thank you so much!
    I just put a hair dryer infont of the screw for about a minute, tried and didn't work. Then I left the dryer pointing at the screw for a few minutes and tried again. First, I slipped again but then I tried a flat head driver I tried earlyer and all the sudden I had a really good grip. So I had to put my whole muscle power of my hand in to loosen that f*cker up.
    Why do they tighten these screws to much that one barely gets it out?!

    Anyway, your tip saved my second M.2 slot! Now I finally have an all-SSD-build. No annoyingly slow and loud HDDs anymore! :D
    Thank you all here very much!
