Hi guys,
Please help with a tutorial, guidance or video (whatever guidance works).
Trying to clean my custom built Clevo P775dm3-g, but one of the screws is completely stripped.
Reached the point of using a screw extractor but at this rate I don’t know if it is working.
Please guide on how to fix this, the screw does not bulge.
Tools I have:
Drill, Screw extractor

I had the exact problem on my p775dm3-g, with ALL the GPU and CPU screws, they are very bad quality!
I tried everything from superglue to rubber bands and screw extractors,nothing worked. didn`t try a mini dremel, but by the looks of it, in your case you[/ICODE]d have to cut into the plastic too

My solution was to cut down and sharpen a old drill bit i had laying around and then placing it at the edge of the screw and hit it lightly at a angle until it dug in the screw then hit it some more and it finally started moving.
Remember to use some hard metal from a drill bit or other tools
