I am not sure whether it is the correct term. Let me explain. I have a laptop that looks like this.
The bolt inside looks like this.
During repair, I tried to manually remove the screw using the exact size screw driver. To my dismay, the screw is tightly pressed inside, and as I turned it more, the "teeth" of the screw started to loose shape. Now, my screw driver slips through the teeth of the screw.
As for my plan, I will try to lubricate the screw with oil or WD-40.
Is it safe? Are there any alternatives to remove the screw?
