Removing the screw on graphics card..

Helloo. I tried removing a very tiny screw on my GPU but it wouldn't go since my screwdriver was too long, so I actually ended up scratching ( or rounding is what they call it) so badly it can't turn. It is a phillips and I don't know what to do! I want to remove the cover so I can clean my GPU after 4 years. THANKS.

  1. If you remove the cover make sure it isn't connected to the heat sink which is bonded to the GPU. If you do that then you will have to get thermal paste and reeat it.

    To get the screw out is going to be a problem. Most likely you will have to drill it out. I don't know of any tools except easy outs but they are for bigger screws. Can't you just use compressed air and blow it out.

    Good luck to you.
  2. if its a hex shaped screw you can use always use a nut driver to get it out........................oops i see you were taking the card itself apart..............................never mind........
